Una Pizza Napoletana is Opening on Orchard Street ‘Very Soon’

Posted on: April 6th, 2018 at 5:00 am by

Despite exterior appearances to the contrary, Una Pizza Napoletana on Orchard Street is happening sooner than you might think.

In a podcast interview with Smart Pizza Marketing, pizzaioli Anthony Mangieri divulged that the “ovens are in” and that an opening should happen “very soon.” As in, early spring. And that it’s only a “matter of putting pieces together.”

The forthcoming pizza restaurant at 175 Orchard Street (formerly Whynot Coffee for four years) effectively doubles the capacity of prior locations.

As previously reported, Mangieri shuttered the San Francisco restaurant back in December to begin building out the Lower East Side HQ. However, he is not flying solo on Orchard Street, unlike previous iterations of the pizzeria. Instead, it’s an equal partnership with the Wildair/Contra crew, Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von Hauske Valtierra. He also intimated that a West coast return is unlikely.

Una Pizza Napoletana will be the eleventh pizzeria to serve the Hell Square environs. It’s also worth pointing out the existence of at least 48 full liquor licenses within 500 feet.
