Anyone who lives in Rye and knows pizza knows Sal’s Pizza in Mamaroneck (if you think Pizza 2000 is good, this writer just changed your life). Sal’s patrons also have enduring admiration for the faux gray brick and orange laminate interior and the gruff (read: authentic) attitude of the counter staff.
With the constant being no change at all for twenty plus years, Sal’s fans will be surprised to know the venerable pizza joint is opening a gelato and Italian ice bar next door in "a couple weeks". A quick look through the window shows tiled floors, glass display cases and wooden counters. If the gelato tastes as good as the pizza we won’t mind the fancy digs. But faux gray brick and orange laminate would have been fine with us.
