Danforth Pizza House is for sale now that owner Angelo D’Auria is gone.
House for sale
Ever wanted to own your own pizza parlour? Fork out 749 grand for the building and another 129 for the business and the venerable Danforth Pizza House (920 Danforth, at Jones, 416-463-4927) could be yours. Sadly, the sale comes on the heels of owner Angelo D'Auria's death last fall. Potential buyers should note that the celebrated pizzeria's considerable reputation isn't included in the price.
After a two-year run, Scott Vivian and Rachelle Cadwell of Beast (96 Tecumseth, at Whitaker, 647-352-6000, thebeastrestaurant.com, @BeastRestaurant) have pulled the plug on their popular Friday-lunch Beastwich meal deal. No longer does 10 bucks get you a takeout sandwich named for some ever-changing exotic locale - Turin, Vera Cruz, Tonawanda - plus a veggie side and dessert. The reason?
"To tell you the truth, I started to run out of ideas," says Vivian.
Fans of the popular breakfast version of the Beastwich will be relieved to learn it'll be available four days a week when Beast begins offering weekend brunch Friday through Monday starting next week.
