Coney Island Legend Totonno's Springs Back to Life

The coal oven is fired up and Totonno's is serving delicious thin crust pizzas once again. The Robs send word that the Coney Island institution reopened yesterday. Almost five months ago, Hurricane Sandy's floodwaters caused significant damage to the restaurant. The owners estimated that the storm caused approximately $100,000 worth of damage. They were denied loans from the government, but the members of Team Totonno's did receive some charitable donations, including $5,000 from SF chef Daniel Patterson.

Proprietor Louise "Cookie" Ciminieri offered a message to fans on the restaurant's answering machine: "We hope that you are well. We love you. We look forward to seeing you at Totonno's. God bless." On its first night back in action, the wait for a pie stretched past the two hour mark.
