Speedy Romeo Pizzeria on Clinton Street is Permanently Closed
The Lower East Side outpost of Speedy Romeo is cooked.
The four-year-old pizzeria on Clinton Street permanently closed down last month. Chef-owner Justin Bazdarich confirmed to Eater yesterday that the closure is permanent, and related to the pandemic. And that keeping it open “wasn’t sustainable” given the uncertainty about when indoor dining would return.
But Bazdarich confirmed that the original Brooklyn pizzeria will remain operational. Most likely due to its size and ability to accommodate distanced dining.
Speedy Romeo debuted in Brooklyn back in 2012. The Lower East Side location followed four years after, and later expanded its dining room.
