New York, NY—–The first NYC pizzeria will open next week, opening to the public on Wednesday, December 14, 2020, according to the New York Times.
Located at 590 Park Ave.
on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the newly named Pizza Hut New York is slated to serve pizza and takeout.
“We’ve been talking about it for quite some time,” Pizza Hut CEO Andy Leavitt told the Times.
“I think we’re going to open to the general public on Tuesday, December 15, but I want to make sure it’s in a really great spot.”
The pizza place, which will offer pizza, salads, sandwiches, and more, will serve the same menu as Pizza Hut, but will be operated under the Pizza Hut brand.
Leavitsve been in the pizza business since 1989, but is best known for his involvement in the development of the original, pizza-inspired pizza, which he launched in 1995.
The original Pizza Hut was located in a former Macy’s department store at 1238 Park Ave., across from a Whole Foods Market.
Leivitt says that the new location will serve up an assortment of flavors that will have the New Yorkers “in a hurry to eat.”
He says that it will be the first in the city, and that the restaurant will be open for a limited time.
Pizza Hut will offer several types of pizzas, including “classic” and “baked” pizzas.
LeAvitt says the company is also planning to offer a salad and a sandwich menu.
The new Pizza Hut NYC will also have a patio.
Pizza Huts New York will not only serve pizza, but also takeout, and Leavit says that there will be a “great selection of salads, appetizers, sandwiches.”
The restaurant will have a “healthy” option that will include salads and sandwiches.
Leovitt also says that Pizza Hut is working on bringing back a popular takeout menu, which has become a staple in NYC for years.
