Brick-oven pizza restaurant, Wall Street Tavern, has closed the doors of its Wall Street location in Norwalk.
“As you all know it has been difficult opening during the pandemic. We have found a buyer and our last day of business will be this Saturday, Jan. 7,” a statement read on the business’ Facebook page. “Please know how difficult this decision is, and that we are so thankful for all of our loyal customers.”
The restaurant, which sits across the street from the Wall Street Theater music venue, was opened by Bryan Malcarney and John D’Agostino in 2020. It became known for its coal-fired pizzas named after songs by musicians like Phish, Grateful Dead and The Smiths. Other menu items included sandwiches, soups and salads. The restaurant would also host live music.
The years since the start of pandemic saw a number of casualties in the Norwalk restaurant scene including The Village, Our House and Iron Brewing Company, all of which were located on Washington Street.
Owners did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
