A few weeks back, Jordan Baker introduced himself as the new owner of the former Nonna's Pizza space on Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street.
Here's part of the comment that Baker left us:
I love Avenue A and the small businesses that comprise it (with the exception of two franchises that have recently opened that are eye-sores) and I want to keep it small-business friendly as long as possible! I had a good relationship with the previous owner, as a customer and a friend, and I’m taking the spot over, partially as a favor to him (for personal reasons), and partially because opening a pizzeria has been a dream of mine as long as I can remember.
As you can see the sign arrived at the shop this past week for Baker's Pizza... we'll check in with him a little closer to the official opening... and we want to know more about that piano!
Nonna's closed at the start of the year.
