Speedy Romeo Pizzeria Opens its Larger Dining Room on Clinton Street Next Month
Speedy, it was.
One year into operations, Speedy Romeo Pizzeria on Clinton Street is now a few weeks from expansion. Ownership spent the last six months renovating the adjacent space for the purposes of relocating the kitchen and enlarging the dining room.
“We’ve been not-so-secetly working on a brand new dining room next door,” an announcement on Instagram reads. Taking a peek behind the boards, looks like they’re working on connecting the two rooms.
To properly ready the new legroom, so to speak, the Speedy team closed the pizzeria for lunch today (and yesterday).
Grand reopening celebration is scheduled for Wednesday, March 1.
Community Board 3 approved the OP alteration back in August, which includes extending the liquor license into 61 Clinton Street, moving the basement kitchen to the ground floor of 63 Clinton Street, and reconfiguring the bar and seating.
The larger configuration comes at the expense of Clinton Furniture & Mattress, the mom-and-pop store that shuttered seven months ago.
