It's been less than three months since a new pizzeria, Padrino's, opened on Fifth Avenue just north of Ninth Street, in the space last occupied by Mamco Electronics. The no-frills pizza joint was beginning to get a reputation as one of the better pizza options in the area, but as soon as it opened, it closed down. Now there's new signage on the storefront, indicating that the space's next tenant will be called Tommy's Famous Cheesesteaks and Pizza.
Most signs point towards ownership being the same, but the new menu will more likely be a bit more eclectic. Either way, it looks like this part of the Slope is about to get one more fast food option.
