Cowboy Pizza, the year-and-a-half-old restaurant at 201 Clinton St., has closed.
The business, operated by the team behind East Broadway’s Pushcart Coffee, opened in the spring of 2012. Via email, co-owner Lisa Fischoff told us, “the company just wasn’t bringing in enough business to be sustainable.” She said the decision would have no impact on the coffee shop. Outside Cowboy Pizza today, a note to customers read, “thank you for a year-and-a-half of your patronage and friendship.”
Pushcart Coffee includes the original location at 221 East Broadway as well as a second shop (Peter’s Field) at 362 2nd Avenue, near Peter Cooper Village. A third outpost is scheduled to open in November in Chelsea, at 25th Street and 9th Avenue.
