With the gas snafu far in the rearview, progress is finally palpable down at Scarr’s Pizza on Orchard Street. The first real public evidence of its arrival was installed this week – simple store signage.

As previously reported, Scarr’s Pizza is the maiden solo effort for eponymous owner Scarr Pimentiel. His goal is to revive the “classic pizza parlor” model from the 1970s, armed with a pedigree to match. Plans include booth seating, soda fountains, spray fountains (with coconut water), wood paneling, mirrors, bar stools, etc. They’ll also mill flour and tomatoes (harvested from Gotham Green) onsite. Expect to cough up $3 for a plain slice.

Pimentiel also plans to serve booze, thanks to a beer-wine license that was approved by Community Board 3 in August. He tells us that the pizzeria should bow sometime “around Halloween more or less.”

Scarr’s Pizza was somewhat controversial out of the gate, though. Contract work in the basement of 22 Orchard reportedly disrupted the gas lines, ultimately forcing neighboring Fung Tu into “electric kitchen” cooking for two months. And also leaving tenants up above without gas service. Department of Buildings records show several complaints lodged for unauthorized plumbing work.

Both will soon operate side-by-side as if nothing happened.
