To Long In Exile

We are here…

For those of you who have not been able to stop by for pizza, we are here. We have not posted in quite some time. We are keeping ourselves busy by the oven, cooking pizzas and the likes. Besides this short informational post you will be seeing some new and exciting posts in the near future. We are extremely grateful for the overwhelming support we have been receiving. You will be able to see pictures from the opening party and such soon. Thank you.

Update 11-22-07 (Happy Thanksgiving)

So close. Moved in the tables, chairs, reach ins, prep tables, ice machine, dishwasher, etc, etc ,etc…it’s starting to look like a restaurant now. The sign is aglow and so is our oven.

You can almost smell the pizza…

The restaurant nears completion as we near our inevitable opening date. I’ve stitched together some photos for a progress report. We are flattered to realize that folks as far away as Asia, U.K., and Italy are checking the blog. We plan to impress you all.

Pizza oven… Check!

We have officially reached the point of no return. We have created a monster. Even if Midtown wanted to get rid of us (which they don’t because we rock)…they couldn’t. The 7000 lb. gorilla in the corner is now taking orders from us. Much thanks to our trustworthy mason, Clayton Chadwick.

Our Oven, In All It’s Grandeur

We are setting our sights on done as far as our oven is concerned. We got the oven in place with a little bit of grunting.

Here is our progress in pictures..

Oh, how they grow. This is phase two of our oven. What you can’t see in these pictures are the strong, handsome gentlemen who hauled all this concrete.

By the time you read this, there will be a fresh coat of delicious new asphalt were this dirt lays. As Joseph and I were discussing the various properties of asphalt we realized we didn’t know as much about it as we would like. So with some help from Wikipedia—Asphalt or bitumen can sometimes be confused with tar, which is a similar black thermo-plastic material produced by the destructive distillation of coal. The primary use of asphalt (bitumen) is in road construction, where it is used as the glue or binder for the aggregate particles. The road surfacing material is usually called ‘asphalt concrete’ in North America or simply ‘asphalt’ elsewhere. The apparent interchangeability of the words ‘asphalt’ and ‘bitumen’ causes a lot of confusion outside of the road construction industry despite quite clear definitions within industry circles. Huh.

We’re In Labor… So To Speak

Our wood fired oven was born today. October 15th, 2007. 2560 pounds and some ounces. 24 square feet. It is a beauty.
