Pizza Beach, Hell Square’s latest nightlife spot, opens for business tonight. Tom and Anthony Martignetti have brought a branch of their Upper East Side restaurant downtown to 167 Orchard St. (At Stanton Street). It’s across the street from Hair of the Dog and beloved LES pizza joint Rosario’s.
A plain margherita pie will cost you $15 or you can try a few more inventive options such as: roast pear and taleggio ($17), lamb marquez with Oaxaca cheese ($20) or pineapple and speck ($20). Entrees include dishes like grilled black seabass ($26), fish tacos ($18) and papperdelle with pork ragu ($19). There’s a full cocktail menu.
Pizza Beach is operating out of the space formerly occupied by The Derby and Tiny Fork.
