Trendy LA-based 800 DEGREES NEAPOLITAN PIZZERIA opens in Japan
Trendy LA-based 800 DEGREES NEAPOLITAN PIZZERIA opened in the Eki Soto area of LUMINE’s
NEWoMan (next to JR Shinjuku Station’s Koshu Kaido exit) on Friday, April 15, 2016. This location is their first in
Japan and is directly-managed by LUMINE.
Founder and chef Anthony Carron and head pizza chef Giovanni Di Iorio were at the location on the opening day to
welcome the long line of guests, that were at times close to one hundred customers waiting for up to 90 minutes.
The lines grew and the wait time was 2 hours at longest on April 16-17, the first weekend since their opening,
which was also a huge success. Since then, the pizzeria has continued to attract a wide range of customers.
