There's a new culinary star in the neighborhood, who's apparently just as adept with a camera phone as he is with a butcher's knife. Nate Appleman, recruited by Keith McNally to run Pulino's Bar & Pizzaria, has been a busy boy on Twitter.

The James Beard "Rising Star" recipient is getting ready for a February opening on the Bowery. Yesterday he tweeted:

My stomach is very full, but happy from testing pizza dough all day……..

Then today, actual photographic proof!:

Appleman, making the move from crunchy San Francisco, also shared:

Looking for info on recycling programs for restaurants in NYC. It seems like it doesn't exist.

This sounds like a job for the Lower East Side Ecology Center!
