Brick Oven Pizza Coming to Wallabout

Washington Ave will soon be home to another new hangout. Owner Joseph Falco is working on transforming 37 Washington (which has been operating as a pizza place for the last 14 years or so) into a brick oven pizza spot. flickr-78.jpg

It'll be called Il Porto, and will offer pizza (brick oven and regular), other menu items, wine and beer, plus sidewalk cafe!

The restaurant will span both pizza storefronts on Washington, and will feature historical photos of the Navy Yard inside.

Estimated opening is sometime in April -- just in time for some warm weather First Fridays at RePop and openings at P.E.P.

Pretty cool.
