Walnut Room under way on Broadway

John Burr, owner of the Walnut Room at 3131 Walnut Street, spent two years searching for a location for his next venture. And now the Walnut Room Pizzeria is taking shape in the former home of Freaky's, a space at 2 Broadway that suffered a fire last year. Originally, Burr had hoped to open the place by the end of summer, but judging from how the storefront looks today, it still has a way to go.
