Chris Barrett, the owner of the popular Stoned Gourmet Cannabis Pizza brand, is opening a new joint, Eighths — Pizza by the Slice, at 240 E. Fourth St., just west of Avenue B.
He's looking at a mid-December debut.
Barrett told me the menu will feature all cannabis-infused items but available in smaller quantities than at his Stoned Gourmet Cannabis Pizza places (like the one directly across Fourth Street). All slices will cost $10, with a recommended order of one to three, depending on your tolerance. The shop will also offer gelato, wings and garlic/ganja knots.
Barrett said he plans to open a few more of these slice shops; he already has outposts in the Bronx and Brooklyn.
No. 240 was most recently the pizzeria Johnny Favorite's.
