Levine is most assuredly not Italian. He’s extremely well-known here (in NYC). I’ve never known him to write about other places. So, even if he believes he’s being objective, there’s likely an inevitable bias.
Di Fara is talked about a lot here; nothing obscure about it. I haven’t had a chance to get there yet despite my strong desire to, which is why I haven’t written about it. – I have no chance to get to Brooklyn during the week, and my wife has no interest in that kind of thing on our Saturday night out. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
