UPDATE (5/29/14): S. Egidio is opening tonight, Thursday, per the Booziest of all the Burbs.
The folks working on the new pizza place on N. Broad Street in Ridgewood have been somewhat secretive. What with their window coverings and all.
Yesterday I noticed that one of the coverings was off, but just as quickly saw someone putting it back up. Later in the day I saw that the door was exposing the interior, so I walked over to take a look at the progress.
Seems that they are coming along.
The space is a lot larger than I thought, but with a huge oven taking up so much room, it's certainly not going to be a big restaurant.
Curiously, the name on the oven is Sant'Egidio, which is a reference to Rome. Curious, because I'm assuming they're going to be make Neapolitan-style pizza, not Roman-style. I'd take either quite frankly.
I would have liked to have seen how they got that oven in there.
#italymeetsridgewood is their hashtag on Instagram. Not sure I know how to use that info, though.
