Goodfellas Brick Oven Pizza at 144 Orchard

Posted on: January 28th, 2011 at 6:49 am by

Kebab House II, the onetime late night munchies joint, closed and vacated its 144 Orchard Street premises exactly one year ago.  Requisite Misrahi Realty signs languished in the windows for quite awhile as numerous parties flirted with the property.  At one point, even his Baoness Michael Huynh contemplated opening a “high volume bakery” of American baked goods here.  But those plans fizzled, and the glass facade fell into a state of total disrepair. Tags, stickers, and graffiti galore.

Then a couple months ago, the window paper arrived and activity jumpstarted inside. The new tenant was unclear until now.  CB3’s SLA agenda for February reveals that a new pizza place is in the works – Goodfellas Brick Oven Pizza.  Given their application for a wine and beer license, seems the establishment is leaning more high-end than the typical slice joint.  Either way, there will be a battle, since the establishment resides within a resolution area.

But Rosario’s is probably not too happy about this news…
