Speaking of burgeoning South Williamsburg (not to mention the rebirth of Motorino in the hood), here's another eatery to add to your mental map: Williamsburg Pizza, opening tonight at 5 p.m. with a special appearance from borough prez Marty Markowitz. At the oven is Nino Coniglio, who makes most of his ingredients from scratch (dough, sauce, mozzarella) and who's been tossing pies in Kings County since he was 12, most recently at Pizzeria del Corso in Bayside. Friends and owners Geoff Curley and Aaron McCann (a BK native) spent a decade in the south part of the hood lamenting the dearth of decent slices, until they decided to create their own place. The joint will be open daily for lunch and dinner (takeout and delivery), serving slices, pies, sandwiches, and salads.
Williamsburg Pizza, 265 Union Ave. at S. 3rd St., Williamsburg; 718-855-8729
