I know this isn’t really groundbreaking news (unlike, say, Swine Flu outbreaks), but it was reported last month that Totonno’s pizzeria in Coney Island will be reopening soon. This is great news! As you might remember, a fire forced this legendary pizza place to close earlier this year (Fire Shuts Totonno’s, Legendary Coney Island Pizzeria).
Totonno’s: Reopening In June; Named "America’s Classic" @ James Beard Awards
I guess this might also be a good time to mention that at the 2009 James Beard Awards which took place last week, Totonno’s was one of five national restaurants named “America’s Classics.” This is one of the most prestegious award ceremony in the food industry. Congrats!
