Reader: Forget toppings -- Sexy Pizza will have to go topless!
The Crushery has closed, adding another casualty to the list of restaurants that have shuttered on South Pearl Street. "I love the people in this neighborhood, and, in a way, I feel like I'm letting them down, but I got a very nice offer from Sexy Pizza, and now I'm going to take some time off and figure out what I'm going to do next," says owner John Davidson, who signed the deal with Sexy Pizza Tuesday.
That stretch of South Pearl already has a pizza joint, Kaos, which has some residents wondering if there could have been a better fit for the neighborhood:
Really sad to see them go. Loved the bagel breakfast sandwiches. I cannot understand why you would open some crappy pizza joint there. You have 2 really good pizza joints in walking distance of that place. If you want want a quick slice you can hit up Abo's or Famous....There is a huge open market for Mexican etc.. Heck, open a breakfast joint like Devil's food..you would have yuppie mom's with baby strollers and yoga pants a block long waiting to get in. Sexy Pizza.. I hope it as at least topless..
Can two pizza joints survive on South Pearl Street? What would you like to see on this block?
