If you were waiting with bated breath, exhale. Scarr’s Pizza is now open on Orchard Street; yesterday was the debut.
As promised, the throwback pizza parlor replicates that classic 1970s vibe, from wood-board paneling and spray fountains, down to the Pepsi-branded letter board. Eponymous owner Scarr Pimentiel admits that the booth seating in the back and the stained-glass lights were acquired from a failed bowling alley nearby. There is also a luncheonette counter – complete with stools, Formica bar, and two taps (beer-wine license is on the way).
Regarding the pizza itself, Pimentiel mills his own flour and tomatoes (harvested from Gotham Green) onsite. “Everything is natural and nothing canned,” the proprietor told us in a previous interview. Expect to cough up $3 for a plain slice and upwards of $20 for a pie of same. Other options include a vegan Caesar salad and Gino’s ices.
