Earlier this month, Pomodoro Pizzaria opened in the former Dunkin Donuts space on 2nd Avenue in the East Village. And in case you’re wondering — no, that’s not a typo in the headline of this post. The misspelling actually appears on the sign outside of the pizza place! (Okay perhaps it’s a debatable mistake, but I’ve always used the spelling P-I-Z-Z-E-R-I-A).
Walk two minutes and you’ll hit a dozen other places including Artichoke, Motorino, South Brooklyn Pizza’s new outpost, Pizziani, 2 Bros. St. Mark’s location, and Stromboli Pizza on 1st Ave.
It’s odd to me that Pomodoro Pizzaria is opening where it is… other than some outdoor seating, it does not seem to be offering anything that other places are not already. I guess it’s just a matter of location. A block from three NYU dorms is never a bad place to open a pizza place. They already have 3,000 built in customers. Here’s to hoping college students do a better job at spelling things correctly.
