Slice gets official word from Totonnos owner Lawrence Ciminieri that hes reopening next Wednesday, nearly a year after the fire. And it looks like this time, that date isnt just pie in the sky: Ciminieri says he himself will be making the pies that day. Were confident that this is the real deal this time. Ciminieri says hes got all the permits now and the pizzeria is ready to go. To motivate you to take that trip down to Coney, heres George Motzs video of the making of a Totonnos coal-oven pie. Keep in mind, the place only stays open till the dough runs out, so dont waste any time.
