Brooklyn’s Table 87 Pitches Frozen Coal-Fired Pizza On “Shark Tank”

87 Atlantic Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11201

“We’re going to be on Shark Tank tonight at 9pm.” That’s one of the first things we were told as we walked into Table 87 yesterday.

“What?!” I questioned. “Really?!”

If you’re familiar with the show, you’d know that there hasn’t been a pizza pitch potentially ever, and the frozen food pitches there have been have mostly been rejected because the judges aren’t fans of frozen products.

As we sat down to dinner we marveled at the bizarre timing, because truthfully if we hadn’t gone out to eat on Friday we’d be watching the show in real time. Instead, Harrison and I sat down to dinner with our good friends and got to enjoy the fresh pizza in lieu of the frozen pizza the owner was pitching on the show that night (pre-recorded of course) as a breakout business concept.

We opted for two 12” pizzas, along with octopus (which came highly recommended), rice balls, an arugula salad and pappardelle with steak tips. Our server assured us that we couldn’t go wrong with any of the pizza options, and we’d be back the following week to try the others. We settled on a burrata margherita pie with spicy Calabrese sausage (also known as Nduja, who knew!) and the fig, speck, arugula, mozzarella and San Marzano tomato pie.
