Ex-Piadina– now ex-Pop Art Bar and Restaurant, chef Salvatore Zapparata was a NO-SHOW at last night’s premiere opening event of Pop Art Bar and Restaurant on the Upper East Side, the evening was wrought with drama from the beginning, but somehow owner Nahid De Camillis pulled it off -cheffing the entire dinner herself lavishly decked out in a $5000.00 Oscar De La Renta couture gown. The restaurant looked stunning, with Mark Leialoha’s iconic rock images of Iggy Pop, Kurt Cobain and a never before published Michael Jackson peering down upon diners. The outdoor garden was low-lit and speckled in colorful floral arrangements, inside a offbeat artstic meets swanky uptown crowd moved around hobnobbing from table to table sipping Rosé, enjoying, and snapping pictures.  
 
The Special Opening Menu for the evening was as follows: 
 
Salads
Caprese bufula mozzarella tomato basil
Or
Arugula extra virgin oil and parmesan
 Appetizers
Warm seafood salad with mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and mesculin lettuce

    Art that removes the material from its context and isolates the object. A return to hard-edged composition that represents a response by the artist, Troy. The art is an impersonal reflection of reality, defused with personal symbolism of abstract expressionism. Inspired by the experiences of living within American culture.
