Sfoglini Pasta Shop is a small pasta manufacturer located in the old Pfizer Factory Building in Brooklyn that serves up fresh pasta to some of New York City's best Italian restaurants. The Bronx Brewery is a small craft beer brewery in Port Morris, Bronx, that brews over 20 different pale ales since first opening in late 2014.
This week’s episode of Deconstructed highlights a truly New York product, from origin to plate: BxB radiatore pasta, a collaboration between the Bronx Brewery and Sfoglini Pasta Shop. The spent grain leftover from making the brewery’s rye pale ale is gathered and shipped to Sfoglini, a pasta production company in Bed-Stuy, where it becomes a batch of intricate radiatore-shaped pasta. The BxB pasta is sent to markets, specialty stores, and restaurants in the area, including Emily in Fort Greene, a husband-and-wife-owned restaurant where the BxB radiatore features prominently on their fall menu, in a house-made beef shank ragu.
