It is no secret that one of my favorite things about my favorite show is how it showcases the New York dining scene from hole-in-the-walls to neighborhood gems to Michelin-starred restaurants.

Known in the food world as a low-key excellent restaurant arbitrator, Showtime show Billions premiered its third season on Sunday night and highlighted three well-regarded New York City restaurants. Wo HopVeselka, and Del Posto all made the cut this go-round.

Episode 1: The Pilot 

The one with our first meeting of Bobby:

Bruno’s pizza joint, Capparello’s was Axe’s go-to place when he was a kid and he is still a regular. Bruno seems to be a father figure to Axe. The secret? Pizza is made with San Marzano tomatoes!

Rosa’s Pizza: 7559 Metropolitan Ave, Middle Village, NY 11379 (Queens) Yelp Review

You know, pizza is serious business in New York and hats off to Damian for eating his NY slice so authentically!
