Starr Pizza

KYW’s Hadas Kuznits tracks down Stephen Starr and she gets him to spill some beans on Pizza Select, Starr’s brick-oven pizza restaurant planned for 2nd and Lombard.

“I’ve been wanting to do pizza for a long time because I usually do things that I want.  And I can’t get really good pizza here in Philadelphia, so I’m just doing what I want to eat!”

He says they’ll offer lunch, dinner, and may even a little Italian-style breakfast. But they will specialize in pizza:

“It’s going to be real thin-crust, Brooklyn-style pizza, which you’d think is served here but it’s not.  Here it’s just thick, doughy pizza.  We’re doing a lot of research on this.”
