New Pizza Joint Opening at 151 Ludlow
For the last couple months, 151 Ludlow Street welcomed fashion refugees Some Odd Rubies and Lindsay Thornburg with open arms. But the retail tryst was rather short lived. The pair relocated around the corner to the much larger 114 Stanton (the vacancy next to Souvlaki GR) earlier this month, paving the way for fast food. A pizza joint.
The south store of 151 Ludlow had been a haven for numerous boutiques over the years, but its function is now transitioning to meet the apparent demand for more pizza. Permits filed with the DOB last month allow for the “interior renovation of existing commercial space for proposed new pizza shop.” Owner-applicant on record is one John Junkovic, a man who seems to have a hand in both the beloved Stanton Pizza and the recently-opened East Broadway Pizza.
So does that mean we’ll soon have a Ludlow Pizza so close to the original location? With two other slice joints (Via Tribunali, La Montanara) already on this stretch of Hell Square, the sauce wars are certainly intensifying.
And here’s a bonus shot of 114 Stanton, where Some Odd Rubies and Lindsay Thornburg are ready to boogie.
