Yeah Yeahs Pizza is coming to Halifax

PRAISE BE


If you're a Yeah Yeahs Pizza fan you're probably willing to go to the ends of the earth (or at least across the harbour) for your fix, but brilliant news—soon Haligonians won't have to.

Co-owners of Dartmouth's highly addictive pizza joint, Josh Nordin and Dean Petty, have just started the renovation phase of their new location, which will call the character-filled 1663 Barrington Street (AKA the former Little Mysteries book shop, across from Stillwell and The Barrington) home later this spring.

"We always had been toying with the idea of opening a shop in Halifax, but doing Dartmouth first made sense for us," says Nordin. "Every day I run into someone who’s like ‘I never get a chance to get over there.'"

The stand-alone pizza shop will offer the same relaxed vibes and aesthetic as its Dartmouth counterpart, a mostly identical menu (with a few additions) and is aiming to serve both beer and wine to wash it all down with. There'll also be space for 40ish people to sit down and stay awhile. And delivery? It's not off the table.

"If we can make it work, we’d love to make it work," says Petty. "If we can’t offer delivery and keep the quality high, we won’t do delivery."

For now, the business partners—who opened a Yeah Yeahs in Toronto in collaboration with Boxcar Social just over a year ago—are focused on taking the character-filled Barrington Street space and building a place folks want to hang out, pig out and doodle on their paper plates.

You can be one of those people, slice in hand, in mid/late May.
