Proto's Pizza returns under new ownership on 2nd Avenue



The for rent signs arrived outside the pizzeria at 50 Second Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street in early March.

However, the storefront didn't stay on the market long. A few weeks later, signs arrived saying that Proto's was returning under new ownership.

Anyway, it has reopened this week. We always liked the pizza here, and will check out Proto's 2.0 soon.

Brooklyn native Rob Proto opened the original pizzeria here in May 2012.

Proto's Pizza coming soon to Proto's Pizza space on 2nd Avenue


[Photo from March 3]

The pizzeria at 50 Second Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street closed at the end of February … and for rent signs soon went up in the window.

Last night, though, an EVG reader noticed a new sign in the window … noting that Proto's is returning under new ownership…

Proto's Pizza has closed on 2nd Avenue



We're sorry to see that the pizzeria here at 50 Second Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street has closed. We liked the pizza served up by Brooklyn native Rob Proto.

Now for rent signs are hanging in the window. The space that belonged to Yoo's Convenience Store — home of New York's "best coffee" — remains vacant next door.

Proto's opened in May 2012.

Proto's Pizza opens today on Second Avenue


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.
