ITP fans of Anthony Spina's grandma pie were heartbroken when he announced it wouldn't be served at Nina & Rafi. But the restaurant has promised to bring the grandma pie back for one-night-only pop-ups, the first of which is in March.
The Grandma Pie that made O4W Pizza is off the menu at Anthony Spina and Billy Streck's new restaurant, Nina & Rafi. Instead, the duo are focusing on the restaurant's other pizza styles and Italian-American comfort foods.
Doughy, crispy, semi-deep-dish Grandma Pie reigns supreme at Anthony Spina’s O4W Pizza, which he moved to Duluth from Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward last summer. But that Grandma Pie! Sizzled in a cast-iron pan and finished with whole fresh basil leaves, it’s a must-order.
If you wept when O4W Pizza departed for Duluth, your prayers have been answered—Anthony Spina is bringing his pizza back to the Old Fourth Ward in mid-2018.
Also called O4W Pizza, the restaurant will seat 40 to 60 diners inside, plus another 80 on the front and back patios. With more space comes more room to expand the menu, Spina says, noting that there will be more salads and heroes, but fewer pizza options.
Old 4th Ward Pizza will open for dinner tomorrow in Irwin Street Market. The Italian-American, New Jersey-style spot will serve thin-crust pies and slices cooked in a brick oven, in addition to salads, meatball Parmesan, calzones, and stromboli. Lunch service will begin next Tuesday.
