South Brooklyn Pizza Takes Over Ruben's Space Next Door

New, 1 comment

The quiet, unexpected shuttering of Ruben's Empanadas on 1st Ave left many EVill diners scratching their heads — it was seemingly a popular spot and a part of a small, very successful NYC chain. Now it appears that next door neighbor South Brooklyn Pizza will be taking over the space. An employee tells us that plans are set for an expanded bar and dining room utilizing the Ruben's storefront. No word yet on when they're opening the full space, or if they've secured a liquor license, but when all systems are go, the plan sounds something akin to what's going on at Veloce across the street. Could this be the future stage for a 1st Ave pizza parlor war?
