Di Fara Expanding with Take Out Shop Mid-April

The Midwood, Brooklyn staple is opening a takeout joint a couple doors down

Di Fara Pizza in Brooklyn plans a local expansion.

Italian pizza/pasta lovers have been geeking out all day over a Facebook post this morning over news of the expansion of Brooklyn cult classic Di Fara Pizza. In a Facebook status update, the restaurant announce, "[Di Fara] is happy to announce that several doors down we will be opening a tiny take out place offering all our old menu items that so many have been missing. We will have pasta, heros, salad and more. We expect to open mid April. All our products will use the finest and freshest ingredients as we always do at [Di Fara]... please, no questions at this time... Will update as we see fit ! Thank you... Happy April !"

Vague opening date and menu items aside, New York's media circus are flipping out over the news, as Dom Demarco and his family behind the Midwood, Brooklyn, N.Y. location hasn't served up pasta dishes in at least 10 years, Eater reports. The original Di Fara has been open since 1964, serving up legendary Sicilian-style pizza to the masses lined up outside.


Di Fara isn't up for answering specific questions yet, but we can only hope that this will alleviate those long lines, expediting the amount of time it takes to get Dom's food to our mouths.
