Pizza Pop-up Margot’s Will Open As a Full-Time Restaurant

The pizza student has become the pizza master.

Here's some pretty exciting news that Adam Kuban prolific food writer and the brains and brawn behind the beloved Margot's Pizza pop-up, won't be heading west after all to spearhead the Portland outpost of Greenpoint fave Paulie Gee's. Instead, he's "actually staying in NYC to open a bar pie place." Kuban clarifies to Eater that the brick-and-mortar Margot's is in its earliest developmental stages and he's not established a "definite timeline yet," but he's about to begin the hunt for a space. That's reason enough for pie fanatics to start getting excited. [Ben Leventhal via Eater NY]
