Displaced by Shake Shack, Antonio’s Rises from the Ashes


Everyone seemed pretty excited back in late 2010 when it was announced that Shake Shack was coming to the Fulton Mall. Everyone, that is, except for Tony Casaccio, the proprietor of Tony’s Famous Pizzeria, which spent more than 20 years in the retail space at Fulton and Adams Streets. “This location was like dating Pam Anderson. How can you replace Pam Anderson?” Casaccio said to The Brooklyn Paper at the time. Well, he’s managed to rebound, landing on the other side of Borough Hall in the space at 32 Court Street formerly occupied by Korean-style yogurt chain Yofiore. His new spot, which, at 650 square feet, is considerably smaller and also offers salads, juices and cappucinos in addition to ‘za, opened today. A tipster snapped this photo moments ago. GMAP
