Ludlow Street Pizzeria Hits the Open Market
La Margarita Pizza might not have much time left in Hell Square. The Ludlow Street pizzeria is now pitched on the open market.
The 800 square-foot store at 268 Ludlow appeared on Craigslist in late-May for $9,000 per month in rent.
The listing caps some eight years in business for the Lower East Side pizza parlor.
“Famous” Hakki Akdeniz founded La Margarita at 151 Ludlow in 2013. Two years later, at the end of 2015, the pizza maker sold the business to the current owners, whose struggles with the lease were the subject of previous new coverage. They moved to the current spot – formerly home to Taquitoria – in October 2017.
