After a more than a three-year run, Armitage Pizzeria closed last week in Lincoln Park. The awnings no longer bear the shop's name, and there's been a bit of a paint job inside. Coalfire Pizza founding partner James Spillane ran the spot, an unassuming purveyor of New York-style thin-crust pies with only four seats.
Inside, a sidewalk chalkboard menu was stood up listing the breakfast offerings for Blue Door Farm Stand. Could they be taking over the spot, perhaps even on a temporary basis? Blue Door's been shuttered since earlier this year in anticipation of their move to a new location. That move has been delayed. An email to Blue Door PR hasn't been returned, but if it means anything, they've painted the doorframe at Armitage Pizzeria blue.
