Motorino Brooklyn (Williamsburg) Shut Down
« on: August 01, 2011, 03:37:49 PM »
Wow.

New York City Department of Building shuts down the Williamsburg location of Motorino.

Mathieu says he will re-open in another spot, but that is sad news.

I've had some excellent pizza in MW on a couple of occasions and sad to see it go.  :'(

There is still the EV location though.  :chef:

Is that his original location or the one be took over from AM? It sucks that he has to close down because of the landlord. That's probably such a big factor in buying an oven and importing here instead of getting a built on site oven.

That is his original location.

The East Village location on 12th Street is the one he took over from Mangieri after being open in Brooklyn
