Late last week Slice'r iheartneapolitanpizza went and brought up the rumor that Pizzetteria Brunetti in Westhampton Beach, New York, was opening a location in the city. Co-owner Jason Brunetti confirms it in an email exchange I had with him. Pizzetteria Brunetti is indeed looking to expand to NYC. A message from Mr. Brunetti, who co-owns the small Hamptons pizzeria with his father, Michael, after the jump.
Jason Brunetti says:
When we opened our little pizza place in Westhampton Beach, Pop wanted three things. First to make it onto Slice. Second, to make it into the New York Times—and we accomplished both.
Third is to open in NYC, and we are working toward making miracle 3 happen. In fact I'm moving into the city this week so I can have my ear to the streets and keep an eye on retail that becomes available. Let me just say how grateful I am that these forums exist for people to share their passion for pizza that everyone can share together.
