Saluggi’s East Can Finally Serve Pizza at its LES Outpost

Saluggi’s East opened two months ago at 399 Grand Street in Seward Park. However, the Tribeca-based artisanal pizzeria was severely handicapped out of the gate by lack of gas hookup, functioning more like a sports bar without its signature offering.
Well, owner Bill Wall got in touch to tell us that they’re now slinging pies. Con Edison finally came through, and reportedly turned on the utility last Friday.
This address, you’ll recall, was previously home to The Comfort (nee Comfort Diner), which was a total let-down from top to bottom. Said establishment replaced Noah’s Ark Deli, the last full service Kosher restaurant in the neighborhood which closed in 2013.
Saluggi’s Pizza has been holding court in Tribeca for the better part of a decade. The “East” parlor on Grand Street is their first expansion beyond the original location.
