Fire Shuts Totonno’s, Legendary Coney Island Pizzeria

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.

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.
