Television and radio personality Anne-Marie Withenshaw was sufficiently impressed with Nolana, the MTL Cuisine group's pizzeria reboot of Racines in Old Montreal, to share some pics with her legion of social media followers on Tuesday.
A reference to the restaurant's s'mores dessert pizza elicited this tweet from Pizzeria Gema. (There's some history here. Gema and Impasto co-owner Michele Forgione used to cook for MTL Cuisine at Osteria Venti.)

Clearly not amused, Nolana and MTL Cuisine's Jorge da Silva, Jr. countered with this.
Sad to see @pizzeriagema dissing our S'mores pizza @NolanaPizzeria ...that arrogance explains why they switched their no reservation policy.— Jorge Jr (@jorgejr514) February 26, 2015
