New York Pizza
New York Pizza was a pizzeria located at 1010 Oxmoor Road in the Edgewood neighborhood of Homewood. The restaurant served pizza, calzones, pasta, subs, and salads. It was owned by Scott Moore and Lyn Saturday.
New York Pizza's decor included pictures of many New York City landmarks, such as the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center. Several of the menu items were also named after these landmarks or New York City neighborhoods, such as the Madison Square and Broadway calzones and Statue of Liberty, Greenwich Village, and Upper East Side pizzas.
New York Pizza originally opened at 1014 Oxmoor Road in 1982. In March 2003, the restaurant moved from that location, which the owners were leasing, to a larger location next door, which Moore and Saturday purchased. The two spent $100,000 to gut the building and completely renovate the interior, bringing it up to current building codes.
New York Pizza survived the through the first waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, but closed in January 2022 with an announcement that the owners were retiring. A decision about whether to sell the business or lease the building to another tenant was not made at the time.
