Zazzy’s Pizza Soft Launches in the Old Home of Rosario’s

Posted on: November 23rd, 2020 at 5:02 am by

With Rosario’s Pizza now a proverbial footnote, its successor is now in play.

Zazzy’s Pizza is now serving on Orchard Street, albeit in soft launch mode for the last couple weeks.

For starters, the health-conscious pizzeria (there are plant-based vegan options) is open for dinner service, 5pm-10pm daily. The takeout window at 173 Orchard is open until midnight on Friday and Saturdays. Ownership anticipates a “grand opening” sometime in early December, along with an annex in the West Village.

As previously reported, the decades-old Rosario’s shuttered after the mandatory pandemic lockdown last spring. Never to reopen. Founded on East Houston in 1963 – adjacent to Katz’s – pizzeria was a family affair. It relocated to the northwest corner of Orchard and Stanton Streets since 1998.
