RIP: Druken Pizza Place

According to EV Grieve, Pizzanini has closed. Although New Yorkers might not recognize the pizza place by its name, nearly everyone who has ever been drinking in the East Village has stopped by this spot on the corner of 2nd Avenue and St. Marks Place for a late night slice.

As EV Grieve accurately points out: Can’t be easy to make it work with high rents here… and given the $1 competition at 2 Bros…

I also never knew that The Gap used to have a location there… which is kind of odd since it’s such a small space.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
