As the pizza capital of the world, you would think the closing of one Manhattan pizzeria would go unnoticed, but that’s not the case on the Upper East Side. Residents are deeply saddened by the closing of The Original Zesty’s located at 1693 Third Avenue.
After 32 years of providing hungry New Yorkers with a fast, easy, and delicious slice, The Original Zesty’s will not be renewing its newly expired lease.
“Dear loyal and valued customers,” reads a sign outside the restaurant. “Thank you very much for a wonderful 32 years. It’s been great being your favorite pizza shop and it’s been a pleasure serving you over the years.”
Fortunately for these “loyal customers,” the owner does plan on re-opening in a different location.
While the new location has not been determined, the owner of Zesty’s appears to be optimistic.
“Please stay tuned…” urges the owner on the sign, “… as I will update everyone once a new contract has been signed.”
