He’s been immortalized with a pizza that bears his name in Brooklyn, and continues turning out an impressive selection of pies of his own at Osteria, so it only seems natural that one day Marc Vetri would ultimately open his own pizzeria. And that day is coming sooner than anyone had previously thought. Yesterday, the chef’s chef tweeted a photo of a signed lease on a property that will soon be home to his Pizzeria Vetri. It’s going into The Granary, the 227-unit, mixed use complex coming together at 1939 Callowhill Street, just across the way from the Barnes Foundation. Word on the street is, the Vetri family will offer wood-fired pizzas, beers, and not a whole lot more. The target for opening is sometime this coming summer. [Marc Vetri/Twitter]
