L’asso Pizza is Closed for More than a Week, and Might Not Reopen

That popular Keith Haring mural on the Kenmare Street facade of L’asso Pizza may have been a swan song of sorts. The pizzeria has been closed for several consecutive days – including the all-important moneymaker weekend days – with shutters drawn.

The only notification to the neighborhood is a hand-printed sign saying they’re closed for renovations. And until this week, the announcement included the reopening date of yesterday. The sign has since been swapped for the purposes of ambiguity, though (i.e. no return mentioned).

Calls to L’asso furthermore ring unanswered, as do emails to the company. And you can’t order delivery online anymore. If the closure does, in fact, prove permanent, it would follow exactly three summers after the East Village location folded.

So … is this another “renovations” fakeout? What are your thoughts on L’asso Pizza?
