Earlier we told you that Niagara
was installing a slice joint next door — now we can reveal its name: Pizza Shop. Pie master Kevin Cole perfected his light, crispy crust at Two Boots
and Three of Cups
. He's also used his dough recipe in focaccia bread for sandwiches such as chicken parm and grilled chicken with fresh mozzarella. Save some wooden booths in the back, the space is free of the flourishes you’ll find at Niagara’s downstairs tiki bar, but Cole says the walls will eventually be adorned with the limited-edition pizza boxes that pies will be served in. The first will be a collaboration between photographer Bob Gruen and artist Holly Ramos, featuring a photo of the Clash (who else?).
Pizza Shop, 110 Ave. A, nr. 7th St.; 212-614-9798.
