We've been watching the space where Proto's Pizza will open on Second Avenue between Third Street and Second Street... as the above photo shows, the place looks like a nice, pretentious-free pizzeria.
Owner Rob Proto left us this message:
Proto's Pizza is opening for business on Thursday, May 3rd. Looking forward to providing the East Village with high quality and great tasting pizza, sandwiches and much more.
Let us know if you try it ... And, as a bit of background...Earlier, Neighborhoodr had more on the pizzeria:
The owner’s first go at a pizza place. Aims to hit the sweet spot of offering a high-quality slice for around $2.50. No dollar slices here. "I'd rather go out of business than have to compromise quality. You’re in New York. Do it right," says Mr. Proto, a Brooklyn native.
