South Brooklyn Pizza opened in March 2013 and it was so new to the area that most of you probably won’t mourn the passing of the “pizzaiolo.”
A new pizzeria called Grandpa’s Pizza Cafe will take over the 2224 Avenue U storefront, and a sign says it’s “coming soon.”
We’ve wondered before if that corner location is cursed. Before South Brooklyn Pizza, there was Calabrese Pizza & Restaurant, which was also short-lived. Before that, there was Tai Yuan, which was open for only a few weeks. Tai Shan preceded that – again, surviving only a few months. By our count, it’s been five different businesses in as many years.
