So, it looks like pizza is going to continue trending for the foreseeable future. News of new pizzerias have been washing over the city like a succession of San Marzano tomato sauce waves ever since Marc Vetri dropped word of his forthcoming pizza parlor last week. Since then it’s come to our attention that Tria owner Jon Myerow is getting in on the pie action with Tria Taproom, which Foobooz reports will soon begin tossing pizzas and pouring beers in the space that last housed Rum Bar. No sooner did that news arrive that we began hearing rumblings of Pizza Bar, a tiny pizzeria that’s come to life inside the Piazza’s Kings Oak.

On the heels of that, we have word that Midtown Village trailblazer Zavino plans to cozy up with Shake Shack with a second location at Chestnut Square on Drexel’s campus. And finally, Sidecar Bar & Grille and Kraftwork owner Adam Ritter has a bakery in the works at 22nd and Washington Ave. called Kermit’s Bake Shop that will offer a small selection of pizzas in addition to fresh baked breads, pastries, cakes and sticky buns.
