New: Original SQRD Pizza, on West Broadway

The Spicy Pepperoni slice at Original SQRD Pizza

The hole-in-the-wall Choice Forex currency exchange was at 401 West Broadway for so long and was of so little use to us that we kind of just stopped noticing it was there, which is why it took us so long to notice that it 1) had never reopened and 2) that it had been already replaced in August by a literal hole-in-the-wall slice shop called Original SQRD Pizza. Co-owned by restaurateurs behind two other pizza shops, one of them Prince Street Pizza, the pizzas here are made elsewhere due to lack of space and are delivered ready to be finished up in the small oven.

SQRD only serves square slices that are closer to Detroit-style pizza than the traditional Grandma slice served at other neighborhood pizzerias; a slice is easily a meal for most people, which is a good deal at about $4.50 for most of the slices on their menu—and makes it a perfect thing to grab and eat on your way to Trader Joe’s so you don’t make the mistake of food shopping on an empty stomach. You can get a whole six slice pie for about $30 by either stopping by the shop, which is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day, or get it delivered through Slice.
