There's no sign outside yet, but Sexy Pizza is now open at 1579 South Pearl Street. Throughout the first day of business today, passersby wandered in, wondering where they were. Some were looking for the Crushery, where homemade bagels could be "crushed" with over 75 ingredients. But Crushery owner John Davidson sold his spot to Sexy Pizza's Kayvan Khalatbari, and the deal closed at the end of February. Sexy Pizza, which touts its New York style pizza, opened its first location in Capitol Hill in April 2008; the spot offers free delivery as well as eat-in specials.
Khalatbari quickly turned around the South Pearl space, adding Warhol-like paintings on the wall and a giant pink mixer; there are comfortable wooden booths for those who want to eat in. There's also patio seating in front of the roll-up garage door on good weather, and Sexy Pizza plans to make good use of the location's existing liquor license with happy-hour deals.
What makes this new spot sexy? "You just have to come and find out for yourself," the manager says.
