The Yards development teased the news that Nicoletta NYC Pizzeria would be opening at the location near the ballpark. That location is already scheduled to get a restaurant from New York's Michael White. Does this mean two are on the way?
It does. A spokeswoman for the Altamarea Group confirms that the restaurant will open a kiosk at The Yards sometime this year. The restaurant group is shooting to open Osteria Morini by the end of the summer, and Nicoletta will open a few months after that, she said.
Nicoletta serves up pizzas, pastas and specials such as chicken parmigiana. In New York, it's open late night during the weekends. The New York Times' critic Pete Wells was not a fan, awarding it zero stars in August of last year.
Update: A spokesman for The Yards said Nicoletta will be operated out of two of the retail kiosks that are located on the Boardwalk by the river. The restaurant has about 600 square foot of retail space that can be used for ovens and other infrastructure to allow carryout and delivery in the off season.
