& Pizza Opens its First New York Outpost


When Donald Bernstein was in Washington, D.C. in November 2015, he happened upon &Pizza, an award winning fast casual 21 store pizza chain, with a mission of “Make it personal,” “Elevate everything,” “Keep it fresh,” and “Celebrate oneness.” His first thought, after yummy pizza, was that this would be a great place in New York. We were thrilled when &Pizza called Bernstein Redo, P.C. to ask us to help them open their first New York restaurant. & Pizza at 15 West 28th Street in Manhattan is opening in June. And there will be more stores to come. We are proud to be part of the & Pizza team.
