Nick's Apizza Resurfacing in Boca

Nick's Apizza Resurfacing in Boca

Nick Laudano, who's fine but short-lived Nick's Apizza introduced Lake Worth to the joys of New Haven-style pizza, will debut his new, much bigger and more ambitious pizzeria in Boca Raton's Glades Plaza this July. 

Renamed Nick's New Haven-Style Pizzeria & Bar, the 4,600-square-foot restaurant, bar, and lounge will serve the thin-crusted pies that are a signature of New Haven, Connecticut, including the iconic white clam apizza, made with fresh-shucked Rhode Island littlenecks. Also on the menu will be Hummel hot dogs, paninis, salads, a pasta of the week, and house-made cheesecake. 

To flesh out the space, Laudano and partner Anthony Giovanniello

brought in noted Fort Lauderdale designer Karen Hanlon, whose credits

include Racks Downtown Eatery + Tavern in Boca Raton and YOLO on Las Olas

Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale.  

Among the style points are a 1940s-inspired kitchen

pantry and ceiling papered with advertisements from the 1920s and

1930s. There will also be a to-go window and indoor bar that flows into

the outdoor patio. Laudano himself designed and built the brick pizza


And, BTW, apizza is pronounced "ah-BEETZ."
