I walked by last night and saw the former Mario's Pizzeria manager/leaseholder there. As a matter of fact, I saw him a few times  by the storefront during the "renovation."  My guess is that Mario's Pizza has been rebranded. If so, keeping fingers crossed for good pizza second time around.

oh good another generic pizza place for jh. just what we need.

Hey I wish these guys well.

But walked by and saw their hastily scrawled sign and didn't go in.

Presentation to do with food is very important.

I figure if they can't be bothered to create a nice sign to entice folks, then they're not really going to care that much about their pizza either.

There's simply way too much competition in NYC... so unfortunately, a place that doesn't go for excellence from the start isn't going to cut it for me...

Case in point, even those joints who sell $1 a slice pizza in Manhattan, have perfectly good signs...

Yes, well I've eaten $1 a slice pizza in a pinch and can tell you I was still overcharged!

Does a cornmeal crust mean it's gluten-free?

No, they just put it on the bottom to prevent sticking instead of flour. It just completely ruins the texture of the crust.  Monsters!  ;) 

I've stopped eating anything with flour so I've been making do with cauliflower crust pizza or a version made with melted cheese and almond flour. I have only had real pizza once in the last 8 months. So at this point, even cornmeal pizza would probably taste like heaven to me.

Well, they improved their sign!

May give them a go now...

Mamma Rosa's has posted a menu on the window. It looks like that apart from pies and slices, they'll also be preparing pasta dishes.

pastas and some entrees, as well as veggie sides. and there's a footnote that they have a gluten free pie, "only in 12" size" (a note that makes me think the gluten free crust may be premade).

Mario's also had a gluten-free crust. It was frozen pre-made crust. It's somewhat odd they had a note for "Argentinian" style pizza given the previously posted conversation. Weird and cagey sounding answer for that.
