Two businesses—a pizzeria and a fitness studio—have recently opened up shop in the Queens Plaza area.

Luzzo’s Pizzeria opened at 42-60 Crescent St. the week of Aug. 5. The restaurant is owned by chef Michele Iuliano and Anisa Moloney of the Luzzo’s Group, which has several pizzerias in Manhattan.

The pizzeria offers gourmet pies with ingredients like goat cheese, burrata, and starchiatella cheese, and classics like margherita and four cheeses. Other dishes include soups, salads, and pastas. Pizzas range from $15 to $27, with other dishes priced between $9 and $22.

Meanwhile, SLT, the name of the fitness studio, opened at 42-15 Crescent St. earlier this month. The studio is part of a chain founded in 2011, and offers 90-minute classes focusing on cardio, strength training, and pilates. Classes start at $36, with 10 classes priced at $320 and going up to $1,160 for 40 classes. A monthly unlimited pass is also available for $349, along with other offers.

The Court Square Blog was first to write about the openings.

It’ll be nice to have some vegan pizzas too. With vegan cheeses or no cheese! Let’s be creative!

Why can’t we get a regular pizzeria in the Court Square area? Why is there always the word Luxury or Gourmet in the titles around LIC? Why not just regular names etc…?

Why does it matter? It’s pizza. Buy it or don’t. Your discomfort with those words is strange.

Great, we can agree there, as I also don’t need the word to have pizza. I admire your flexibility though, as that was a huuuge reach. Which gym do you use?

Wait, you voted for an elite billionaire luxury condo developer because you “don’t” want to cater to the rich elite upper class? They ones he gave millions of dollars in tax break to?

You turned your back on the middle class, you’re almost as guilty as Paul Manafort.

Luzzo’s Pizzeria…Nowhere in the name of this restaurant does it indicate ‘gourmet’. Only this article chooses to label it as such. Don’t be afraid of good food! It’s good, I promise. There is a ‘regular’ pizzeria in the are LICSlice…go there, regular guy

I am not exactly “NEAR” LIC slice. I mean in a general 1-2 block area. I am closer to Court Square. Lucky Pizza at Queens Plaza is closer. Lucky Pizza has very good Pizza. (Not exactly Court Sq. area) however.

Because the basic people that move to LIC would rather have Papa John’s and Chipotle – you know, things that come with a side of scandal and outbreak.
