K! Pizzacone is a Lunchtime Madhouse
It seems as if the entire city is going bonkers over K! Pizzacone (on 5th btw. 32+33rd), where pandemonium has completely broken out. We gave you the first look this morning, and then Gothamist, Grub Street and Eater all followed suit. Plus Robert Sietsema (from the Village Voice) and Adam Kuban (from Slice) are both there.
I’m sure their reports will be filed soon, but in the meantime here’s a New York Daily News report to tie you over. They took cameras into the place over the weekend, and interviewed the owner. I don’t know if we agree with his logic (“If it works in Italy…”), or his insistence that regular pizza isn’t portable enough (!?!), but you have to sympathize with his doe-eyed enthusiasm! Also not reassuring is the news that each cone takes 5 minutes to make, after you’ve picked your toppings. (No wonder it’s so packed!) Is it just us or does this place have Kolache Mama and Empanada Joe’s written all over it?
Check out the video, after the jump.
