Scarr’s Pizza Looks to Open Larger Location on Orchard Street

Posted on: March 3rd, 2020 at 5:00 am by

It appears Scarr’s Pizza is on the move. But don’t worry, it’s staying on the block.

On the heels of news about a Scarr’s stall in a forthcoming midtown food hall comes word of another expansion. Owner Scarr Pimentel is apparently moving his eponymous pizza parlor up the street to 35 Orchard (aka 34 Allen) in what was formerly the Lam & Associates insurance office.

This tidbit is mentioned on the Community Board 3 agenda for March. Pimentel submitted an application to remove the beer-wine license from 22 Orchard Street, and transfer to the new address. This move would make sense, as the original location is always cramped. The proposed store is much larger and offers a through-block opportunity.

Pimentel was not immediately available for comment

Scarr’s Pizza opened back in 2016, and it’s been a popular draw ever since.
