Update: Hanley's is now serving coal-fired pies under the name South Brooklyn Pizza just next door to Hanley's at 451 Court Street. [06/16/2008]
Eater's reporting that old-school Carroll Gardens pub P. J. Hanley's has installed a coal oven and will begin serving pizza on Friday.
Knowing that coal ovens are notoriously hard to come by and that you can't just up and put one in any damn place, I just called the bar to confirm. A member of the wait staff says, Yes, it's a coal oven(!), that it's been operational for a couple weeks, and that the first public pies should be out Friday night.
