Upside Pizza Heads to Little Italy, Replacing Pomodoro on Spring Street
Out with the old style, in with the new.
Pomodoro Pizzeria, which shuttered at the outset of the pandemic, is to be replaced by the popular midtown slice shop, Upside Pizza.
Founder Noam Grossman and partners Eli and Oren Halali (behind 2 Brothers and Taqueria Diana) together submitted an application to Community Board 2 for beer-wine privilege at 51 Spring Street. The Little Italy newcomer will transform the 900 square-foot space to include three tables, eleven seats, and a bar with five stools.
Upon opening, which isn’t yet known, 51 Spring Street will be the second location citywide for Upside Pizza. (A Brooklyn offshoot was also announced last year.)
As for Pomodoro Pizzeria, it had anchored the corner of Mulberry and Spring Streets for more than 25 years. The shop shuttered back in March with the citywide lockdown implemented to combat coronavirus transmission.
