Good news and bad news in the pizza world. Though they can’t get confirmation, Eater seems pretty confident that Lucali is opening a new place in the South Slope on Sixth Avenue and 20th Street. Meanwhile, farther south, Slice has a troublesome tidbit: “I just got back from a trip to Di Fara to check out unsubstantiated rumors of a Di Fara closing. The pizzeria was indeed closed, but Dom DeMarco’s daughter, Maggie, was there and reports that her father was at the doctor for ‘minor mouth surgery.’” Stay tuned for reopening details.
