Funny how these things work. Not two weeks after Rizzo’s Fine Pizza opened its second Manhattan location at 17 Clinton Street, a dollar parlor began slinging slices just across the street. Typical play. Papa Dish, as the establishment is known, unexpectedly launched over the weekend at the former brick-and-mortar home of the Dessert Truck Works. In addition to pizza, Papa also features several over-the-counter deli options.

Elements of the predecessor are still quite visible, including the wall design of graphic lettering (i.e. the leftover “works”).

The successful Dessert Works food truck first opened the stationary 6 Clinton Street outpost in January 2010, and closed roughly eight months ago. Barely two years on the block.
