We reported on ~LONG BRIDGE PIZZA COMPANY~ back in November, and now they are getting ready to softly open this week. The opening menu is simple, with four pizza options, like a margherita, sausage, or white pie, available in small or large sizes. The space, in a former deli, has limited seating and a counter—you can also get pizza for takeout. The pizzas are a mix of New York and Neapolitan styles, baked in a deck oven that cranks up to 850 degrees. After the soft opening, hours will be Mon-Fri 11am-9pm and Sat 12pm-10pm. 2347 3rd St. at 20th St., 415-829-8999.
Hey, remember that mysterious pizza place announced in tablehopper a few weeks ago? Well, it looks like it’s open, and they’ve decided to release a few details too. It’s called ~PIZZA SHOP~, and the owner is Thomas Jividen, who previously worked at Bronx Pizza in San Diego. Laurie Badger, of Golden Boy Pizza, is running the register and front-of-house operations. Pies are available by the slice ($4) or whole pie ($19, $2 per additional topping), and the spot is designed mostly for quick bites or takeout, though a beer and wine license is in the works. Open daily 11am-10pm. 3104 24th St. at Folsom, 415-824-1840.
