Pomodoro Pizzaria Opens In The East Village

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).

Spelling aside, an abundance of pizza places within a short distance of one another is nothing new to the area, but the corner of 2nd Avenue and 11th Street is turning into quite the pizza hot spot. On the north side of 11th Street is the newly opened outpost of Numero 28 (176 2nd Avenue), which is situated right across the street from Viva Herbal (179 2nd Avenue).Walk two minutes and you’ll hit a dozen other places including Artichoke, Motorino, South Brooklyn Pizza’s new outpost, Pizziani, 2 Bros. St. Mark’s location, and Stromboli Pizza on 1st Ave.

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.

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.
