Brooklyn Pizza + Bistro

Jay Miller hails from the New York City borough of Brooklyn and describes himself as “someone who grew up in the food business”, making him the perfect candidate to own and oversee Phnom Penh’s first New York-style pizza operation.

But, cautions Miller, “There are thousands of pizza places in New York – you’ve got your dollar-a slice places, you’ve got your corner-store varieties, and you have your artisanal places. We incline toward the artisanal variety.”

Using only the finest imported ingredients, and local organic produce whenever possible, Brooklyn is about more than excellent pizza. It also offersgreat pasta creations, chicken wings, juicy burgers, classic sandwiches, towering salads, and, as Miller puts it, “the best barbecue pork ribs this side of the Mississippi”.

Miller claims he puts in 16 hours a day making sure that every dish is as good as possible.

Open just seven months, his restaurant ranks No 5 on TripAdvisor’s Phnom Penh restaurant listings, which have reviews of more than 600 restaurants.

“That’s happened all by word of mouth, with no advertising,” says Miller.

With a newly built bakery nearby, Brooklyn is currently ramping up production of Phnom Penh’s first and only authentic New York-style bagels, in addition to expanding the line of their popular New York-style cheesecakes, and other baked items, such as sourdough breads, cakes and cupcakes, cookies, and more.

Brooklyn Pizza + Bistro is running a special promotion to celebrate Independence Day. Just mention The Phnom Penh Post today and purchase one pizza at full price to get a second pizza of equal of lesser value at 50 per cent off.
