The blog Eater reported that Lucali, the beloved Carroll Gardens pizzeria owned by chef Mark Iacono, is opening on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, on Kenmare between Mott and Elizabeth streets. New York Magazine confirmed the report. The pizzeria is slated to be called Lucali Kenmare.
Lucali also is reportedly expanding to the South Slope with Giuseppina’s, to be run by Iacono’s brother.
Lucali is located at Henry Street at First Place. It’s absolutely gorgeous, tiny, charming, candlelit, and the pizza is phenomenal. If you live around here and haven’t been, you should go.
