In what’s already been a bad week for pizzeria damages [see Saturday’s posting], the legendary Totonno’s has been closed due to a fire.
I’ve yet to make it there and was planning on doing a Pizza Club out on Coney Island over the summer. Although the place is closed indefinitely, there are plans to rebuild. Hopefully, things will go smoothly and by summertime pizza will be popping out of the ovens again.
And the owner, Helen Eisenberg assures us, “I promise you, it’ll be the same exact pizza.” Phew.
