Famous pizzeria Frank Pepe is scheduled to open sometime in the next month or so, in the space that once housed Ricky’s Clam House (1955 Central Ave, Yonkers). This is the first non-Connecticut location for the New Haven-Fairfield pie-maker, famous for coal-fired pizzas; its garlicky white-clam pie has made grown men tear up (see “Pedigree Pies” on page 156).
