Good news for people who like eating at restaurants with the word skinny in their name: The Roslyn Heights, Long Island–based chain Skinnypizza will open this September at Brookfield Place, the sprawling, food-heavy retail complex formerly known as the World Financial Center. The mini-chain, which boasts that it has “perfected pure goodness,” specializes in low-calorie thin-crust pizzas, organic tomato sauce, and the like. Last month, BatteryPark.tv speculated that Brookfield’s first “big” tenant for the space would be the second location of anticipated L.A. import Umami Burger. All told, there are fifteen “casual dining outlets” slated for the site. [Pizza Marketplace, Earlier]
