Construction is underway at Nomad’s new pizza spot at 1305 Locust Street. As seen in the photo above, a Nomad Pizza awning has installed. Work continues inside, but not on a pizza oven, Nomad’s Stalin Bedon and Tom Grim can rely on the oven that has been there when the space was Girasole and Spiga.

Interestingly, the name on the awning is Nomad Pizza but Michael Klein reported that the name will be Nomad Roman. A tip that the pair plan on offering suddenly en vogue Roman style of pizza that has sprung up on menus around town, including at Pizzeria Vetri and Bufad Roman-style round pies.
