The New York Pizzeria Restaurant has opened at 1430 E. Fifth St. at LaBelle St. in Dayton’s St. Anne’s Hill Historic District. The dine-in or carryout restaurant seats 20 and also offers free delivery within five miles.

This is the second location for New York Pizzeria, which operates an eatery at 498 E. Main St. in Trotwood. Co-owner Raman Ispakhev said he and his family wanted to open the second location because they live in the neighborhood. The new restaurant opened earlier this week, but is still awaiting outside signage, Ispakhev said.

The New York Pizzeria’s menu includes pizzas, calzones, wraps, subs, sandwiches, wings, pasta dinner entrees, and fried chicken and seafood entrees. The restaurant also bakes and sells loaves of Turkish bread for $2 a loaf.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call (937) 222-0321.

Don't forget to check out the great events going on this month, too.

More Art on the Hill

Here's another example of the growing arts district in St. Anne's Hill. Dayton Public Schools unveiled a new outdoor sculpture at Stivers High School for the Arts on Tuesday. According to the Dayton Daily News website:
The sculpture was created by students under the direction of [Jason] Dryden and fellow adjunct Justin Teilhet. It was cut from a 6-foot by 8-foot piece of quarter-inch plate steel weighing more than 400 pounds.
The sculpture is located in front of the school on East Fifth Street.

Side note: Stivers' teacher Jason Dryden is also a founding member of the incredible folk-rock band, Sleepybird.
