Paulie Gee’s Slice Shop is officially serving pizza in its throwback Greenpoint space.
The more casual, counter-service spin-off from Paul Giannone has limited hours and offerings today, but on Wednesday, the slice shop at 110 Franklin St., at Noble Street, will be on full blast, with more pies and longer hours.
Gianonne went hard on vintage decor at the restaurant, literally using bright orange booths from the Jersey pizzeria that his family used to frequent. The pies, too, are more classic. Andrew Brown, a longtime staffer of Giannone’s popular wood-fired restaurant Paulie Gee’s, is firing up New York-style cheese, pepperoni, and sausage slices here, plus vegan options. The Sicilian veers a little more from tradition; the crust is packed with sesame seeds.
The original location commands famously long waits, and though Paulie Gee’s is now spread across the country, this will be the second NYC restaurant for Giannone. No delivery or take-out at the slice shop yet, but stay tuned.
