The new eatery will strive to be the cheapest lunch option in the area, said owner Solomon Solomonov. Almost all of the menu items are under $5, and allow for maximum customization. For example, a small salad is $4.49 and includes your unlimited choice of 32 different toss-ins, he said.
Along with pizza, the shop will serve sandwiches, salads and cream cheese sticks, a creation of Solomonov. The sticks have the texture and fillings of bagels, but in a log-like form. Cream cheese fillings include regular, veggie, lox and walnut raisin.
The new pizzeria, which is aimed primarily at Downtown Brooklyn office workers and students has a casual décor and offers free wi-fi, hence the name.
Solomonov, a Brooklyn native and student at the Brooklyn Law School, said he grew up working in pizzerias and with a wife and baby on the way, he wanted to find a way to provide for them.
While he has considered the downfalls of opening a small business during this economic climate, he remains confident that he’s offering something the neighborhood needs.
