Well, we have some good news, and some bad news about the upcoming opening of Flying Squirrel Pizza Co. at 8310 Fifth Ave. N.E.
And the bad news isn’t so bad. Although the opening of the pizzeria originally was slated for April before it got pushed into July, the company tweeted yesterday that we only have a little to longer to wait:
Looks like late august. Lots of city code approvals to go through with the new build-out.
But if extra time means they’re also putting some extra care into improving the former location of A New York Pizza Place, it’s also a sort of good news.
The drywall crane has landed at Maple Leaf! Starting to look like a restaurant…
And on their Facebook page, they’ve posted a photo of the pizzeria’s new oven:
Hello Maple Leaf….here is your oven. We’re getting there…
The best news yet: Flying Squirrel may not physically be open, but they’re already a part of the Maple Leaf community and plan to be at the Maple Leaf Summer Social from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 27, at Maple Leaf Park Playground, 8801 Roosevelt Way N.E.
We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
