Tony's Pizza debuts on 2nd Avenue

The outpost of Tony's Pizza is up and slinging slices now at 128 Second Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place... Steven stopped by yesterday for these photos...
You can check out the menu here. We're told that this pizzeria is affiliated with Antonio's Pizza Cafe on Court Street in Brooklyn. (Their description of a Fugheddaboudit Pizza matches exactly with the one at the Court Street location.) Antonio's owner (and Brooklyn native) Sal Casaccio also operated Tony's Famous Pizzeria.

This is the first of two Tony's for the East Village. Signage is up now for a Tony's Pizza at 231 First Ave. between 13th Street and 14th Street — the former Vinny Vincenz, which closed in April.


H/T Steven and Upper West Sider!

Anyone know why pizza shops stop selling zeppoles? They were in all pizza shops back in the day. They seem to be replaced by garlic knots.

Probably when fried foods were getting a lot of publicity for being hazardous to your health.

yeah 'cause a garlic knot increases life expectancy.
