Anselmo's closes

Just less then a year ago, there was much excitement over the new coal oven pizza place on Van Brunt called Anselmo's. Now, after a very short time being open, the restaurant has closed due to reported issues with the landlord.

Brownstoner has some extra info, but the info posted directly to the Anselmo's website is the most telling. Check it out here.

Its sad to see another business close - and their pizza was quite good - but thankfully we still have the excellent and longstanding House of Pizza and Calzones further North on Union st.

House of Pizza? really?

not really a fan of the pizza, but there is something to be said for the spinach roll, and eating outside in the spring.

Red Hook is experiencing the same growing pains Carroll Gardens did in the early 90's. Bat crazy landlords that want to skip the transition and cake it for the big bucks. You can rent an apartment that was last even maintained in 1962 for 2500...

and isn't the house of pizza run by the guy who builds all the ugly condos in our hood?
