Slice gets official word from Totonno’s owner Lawrence Ciminieri that he’s reopening next Wednesday, nearly a year after the fire. And it looks like this time, that date isn’t just pie in the sky: “Ciminieri says he himself will be making the pies that day. We’re confident that this is the real deal this time. Ciminieri says he’s got all the permits now and the pizzeria is ready to go.” To motivate you to take that trip down to Coney, here’s George Motz’s video of the making of a Totonno’s coal-oven pie. Keep in mind, the place only stays open till the dough runs out, so don’t waste any time.
