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).
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.
