Pizza Junkie Closes Shop
Pizza Junkie scored its fix of the Lower East Side and has since overdosed. Indeed, the pizza parlor at 11 Stanton Street is barely one year old, and already appears closed. For the last month or so, security gates have remained locked at all hours with no signs or announcements. Moreover, dozens of phone calls placed in the interim buzzed away unanswered. It’s probably safe to say that Pizza Junkie is no more.

Pizza Junkie opened on Stanton Street last March but couldn’t seem to draw the masses. One Yelper perfectly summed up the challenges right at the outset, writing, “This location will be tough for these guys, being on a less traversed road between 2 busy roads [Bowery and Chrystie] – plus they face the problem of the new pizzeria curse.”
How did you feel about their pizza?
