Totonno’s: Reopening In June; Named "America’s Classic" @ James Beard Awards

I know this isn’t really groundbreaking news (unlike, say, Swine Flu outbreaks), but it was reported last month that Totonno’s pizzeria in Coney Island will be reopening soon. This is great news! As you might remember, a fire forced this legendary pizza place to close earlier this year (Fire Shuts Totonno’s, Legendary Coney Island Pizzeria).

I guess this might also be a good time to mention that at the 2009 James Beard Awards which took place last week, Totonno’s was one of five national restaurants named “America’s Classics.” This is one of the most prestegious award ceremony in the food industry. Congrats!

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.
