Funkiberry-replacing pizzeria revealed on 3rd Avenue

Well! EVG reader Daniel sent along this photo from yesterday afternoon, when workers put up the signage for the new pizzeria coming to Third Avenue and East 12th Street.

As we noted a few weeks ago, workers said that the former Funkiberry would become a pizza place.

Anyway, as you can see, it's a Gotham Pizza. We're familiar with the name (there are several in the city), though we've never tried the pizza. Perhaps you have?

Before serving up FroYo here for nine months, the address was home to several pizzerias through the years... including more recently AAA (New) Amici Pizza ... and via a ghost signage reveal, Lawrence & Paul's Pizza & Restaurant...

And then there was the ghost signage under the Lawrence & Paul's Pizza & Restaurant ghost signage for Luigi's…

But there won't be any Funkiberry ghost signage some day. It's in FroYo Signage Heaven.

Stuff that you can't make up: More FroYo for the East Village

Hey, the Funkiberry sign is up on 3rd Avenue

Hey, Funkiberry is now open on 3rd Avenue

Hey, the Funkiberry space is for lease on 3rd Avenue

Hey, the Funkiberry closed on 3rd Avenue

Hey, the Funkiberry space will become a pizzeria (again)

So does Batman work the counter? And can I get delivery by shining the Pizza Signal into the night sky?

I miss St.Mark's Pizza.

I also miss good Ray's Pizza - their pizza sucks now. They figure their customers suck so why buy good ingredients?

What's the closest slice to a St.Mark's Pizza slice? Anywhere in Manhattan is fine - will travel.

^^^ Anyone ???

Pizza slices below 14th Street are total, utter crap now e.g. Ben's Pizzeria (too salty, sauce too sweet, cardboard crust.)
