new shop front by crouch hill station

It seems the ever changing corner unit of japan crescent and crouch hill, which since i've lived in the area has been a number of italian/pizza places is being refurbished again...any idea of what's going in there...?

    Apparently, from another thread, it's a... (drumroll...) pizza place: Pizza X Drink, a vaguely youthfully styled but not particularly edgy restaurant, whose other location is close to where I work. It looks more downscale than Gustavo's and fairly bland, though I hope I'll be proven wrong there.

    It really does seem to be a spot where restaurants come to die... I hope there'll be a Que Me equivalent that's able to run that section of the street successfully.
  • I'm hoping it does well. It would be great to get someone in on the opposite side of the road (i.e. what was most recently The Hopsmiths) too. It's such a shame it is empty.
  • Has 3 beers on draft and looks as much a bar as a restaurant. Seem to be spending some money on the fit out
  • grennersgrenners Ferme Park Road, N4
    You have to be brave to open a business on that stretch especially doing something similar to what has already failed.
  • Not open yet, appears nearly done
  • Anyone been in here yet, i wondered what it was \ like?
  • Not yet. It seems a bit pricey. I walk by twice a day and I've only ever seen a single customer.
  • We went in on opening night for the half-price offer. The pizzas were ok for the money. There are much better options available in the area. BEST PIZZA IN N4? NOT PIZZAXDRINK!

    Strike that off tonight's list then, will try the revamped Landseer instead.

    There's a 5 / 10 K event in Finsbury Park tonight if anyone is interested, 20 quid but you do get a medal!
  • I actually thought the pizza was quite decent when I got a delivery. I'll agree not the best (I'm a big fan of Firezza), but I thought it was good value: £6 for a 10 inch pepperoni pizza seems reasonable to me (the equivalent is more than £8 in pappagone). Obviously just my own humble opinion though!
  • We had some pizzas there last week - ok and probably better than your typical takeaway but could be better.
  • good luck to 'em but they've got a lot of incredibly stiff competition round here - sacro cuore... yardsale... hana maria... firezza... papagonne...
  • I saw the disappointing beer selection the other day, what the hell is 'Stelle'? I assume it is a posh name for wiffbeatérre?
