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.
