Pepe's closed for vacation
- Daniel Sonenberg
I finally found myself hungry and in New Haven, and
with a willing companion headed over to Pepe's to
sample the pizza I've heard so much about. Alas,
pepe's is closed until September twenty-somethingth
for vacation. Sigh...
The Spot too? Or just the big store next door?
The Spot, which is the smaller building in the parking
lot next to Pepes and serves as a sort of annex for
Pepe's overflow, doesn't seem quite as transcendent as
Pepe's proper (probably has something to do with the
ovens), but still doesn't suck. It's sometimes open
when Pepe's is closed. Same owners & recipes, I think.
In my experience, Sally's, down the block and just as
legendary, is usually closed on the same schedule as
Pepe's. But I don't get to New Haven that much.
