Steve Kimonides and Raphael Guthrie, the dream team behind Burn City Smokers, are bringing a little slice of New York to Melbourne. Slice Shop is the new New York-style pizzeria by the dynamic duo in the heart of Footscray.
Available by the slice or as an 18-inch pie, there will be about eight different pizzas on offer each day, half of which are promised to be vegetarian.
Although there is will occasionally be an American barbeque influence in the pizzas, expect the classic New York-style slices that are wide enough to fold in half lengthways to eat.
The liquor license is pending, but you can look forward to Peroni Red tinnies, and a white, red, and sparkling wine option, available soon. For now, you can take your pizza across the road to the popular double-storey bar Mr West to enjoy with a drink there.
The interior of their cosy shop front follows the New York theme: neon signs, white subway tiles, and the impressive stone pizza oven, with trimmings of the Western Bulldogs’ colours blue, red and white reminding guests that they are in Footscray.
