It's been months in the making, but the Walnut Room Pizzeria is slated to officially open at 11 a.m. today (city inspectors willing) at 2 Broadway, in the old home of Freaky's, which has had a $250,000 remodel.
UPDATE: The city inspectors were not willing, and the Walnut Room Pizzeria will now open at 11 a.m. tomorrow. "That's 100 percent definite," says spokesman Chris Vetrano.
This is the second venture of John Burr, owner of the Walnut Room, at 3131 Walnut Street. Unlike that spot, there will be no live music on Broadway, but the same menu will be served on Broadway -- with pizza and other snacks available until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
