Earlier this month, Chris Wilkins announced the closure of his Ponce City Market bakeshop Root Baking Co. Now, the James Beard-nominated chef is moving his sister business, Pizza Jeans, from the 2nd floor to a new home in the food hall, where Farm to Ladle currently stands. Wilkins is also bringing on two new partners to operate Pizza Jeans: restaurateur Billy Streck (Nina & Rafi, Pielands), and his childhood friend Jeremy Gatto.
