Open 

Dino's Tomato Pie
The long-awaited pizzeria on Olive and Denny from Delancey and Essex owner, Brandon Pettit, finally opened the doors Wednesday, March 9. For now, round pies and square Sicilian-style pies will be coming out of the brick oven until the place hits a stride, then slices and delivery will soon follow. Hours are 4pm to 2am everyday, so grab a group for a pizza party where nitrogen negronis flow on tap.

Woodblock
Redmond's newest restaurant is softly open on Cleveland Street, with menu items including blistered shishitos and scotch eggs, mac and cheese, and crispy roasted duck leg.
