Which of the New Pizzerias Is Getting the Biggest Piece of the Pie?

Which of the New Pizzerias Is Getting the Biggest Piece of the Pie?

Now that Co. has reached the half-year mark, you might wonder how it and its fellow new-wave pie joints are doing. A little over a month ago, we were surprised to find Tonda nearly empty on a Friday night, during peak hours. Hey, all the easier to snag a sidewalk table — but we worried the crickets weren’t just because it was Memorial Day weekend. When we stopped by last Friday at 8 p.m., the scene was just as grim. For some perspective, we counted heads at half a dozen other recently opened pizzerias between the hours of 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday. Here are the results.

Tonda – 14 diners, approx. 86 seats available (based on estimated seating capacity)
San Marzano – 32 diners, 6 seats available
Veloce Pizzeria – 22 diners, approx. 28 seats available (based on estimated capacity)
Pizza Mezzaluna – 11 diners, 9 seats available
Spunto – 43 diners, 18 seats available
Kesté – 32 diners, 8 seats available
Co. – 50 diners, 4 seats available, 6 waiting
