Profile

This venue is closed.

This is the brainchild of Elizabeth Ting, who's hoping to infiltrate the fast-food market with tiny buns and big plans for national expansion. The signature dish, the eminently portable bing ($1.50 to $1.95 each) looks a little like a sesame-seed bagel that got run over by a taxi, and belongs to the same internationally renowned family of stuffed dough pockets as empanadas, calzones, and samosas. But unlike Geno's pizza rolls, Mrs. Ting's bings are grilled to a superb chewy-flaky consistency and filled with everything from lotus root to mustard greens. If Ting is to be believed, biting into a bing is not only delicious but carries with it a weighty historical association: During a trip to China, she says, Marco Polo became so enamored of bings that he went on a bing binge, and, upon returning to Italy, attempted to cook up a batch. But, says Ting, "he got frustrated and messed up the dough," so he tossed on some tomato sauce, and accidentally discovered pizza. "You can look it up in the library," she claims.
