With Veloce Gone, There Are Now Only 43 Pizza Places in the East Village


Yesterday, we noted that the East Village is home to 44 restaurants that serve pizza. But now it’s 43: After EV Grieve noticed that Veloce had posted a “closed for renovations” sign in its window, Grub Street called the restaurant and learned that it “will be relocating to midtown Manhattan sometime in 2012.” That’s too bad, because Sara Jenkins created some damn fine pies there, and we’re pretty sure L’asso won’t be filling the void.
