Square Pie opened today at noon today for lunch (serving through 2 p.m.) and will be open this evening for dinner from 5 to 9 p.m.

It’s not an extensive menu, but it should offer some quality pork dishes and thick crust.

Gennaro’s at 1429 Jackson Street

Gennaro’s Tomato Pie has made 1429 Jackson Street a bit of a destination. But the small pizzeria is heading to bigger digs on East Passyunk Avenue, in the former Da Vinci’ Restaurant. The new spot will offer a second floor and a completely under appreciated courtyard.

Mike Giammarino tells Michael Klein that the Gennaro’s will open on the Fountain on East Passyunk in mid-2015. Gennaro’s remains open on Jackson Street in the meantime.

Square Pie Coming to 6th and Catharine

 

Blue Belly BBQ is becoming Square Pie.

Cochon’s Gene Giuffi is getting into the pizza game. He’s converting his former Blue Belly BBQ at 600 Catharine Street into a small pizza shop. Square Pie will serve up Sicilian-style pizza as well as pastas. Giuffi has worked with pizza in the past, and even offered brunch pizzas in the past at Cochon.

Like Cochon, pork will feature heavily on the menu. Look for Square Pie to open later this month.

If you live in Philly and not under a rock, you probably heard that Wawa is selling pizza now. In the few days since its debut, the convenience store’s focaccia pizzas have gotten mixed reviews. The folks over at Philly.com got their hands on three of the five available pies—there are plain, pepperoni, buffalo chicken, veggie and bacon-jalapeño in all—and were generally unimpressed. But over on Twitter, people seem to be digging it—or at least digging the concept.
