Old Fulton Street in Dumbo is about to become the Murderers’ Row of pizza.
Square-pie icon L&B Spumoni Gardens is opening a new shop on the street — right across from two already warring pizza legends, Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s, The Post has learned.
A co-owner of the 80-year-old Gravesend mainstay confirmed Sunday that Spumoni Gardens will be serving up its signature cheese-on-the-bottom, sauce-on-the-top squares across from the two coal-fired brick-oven cousins.
Permits to install pizza ovens at 46 Old Fulton St. — less than 100 feet from Grimaldi’s and about twice that from Juliana’s, which both draw hours-long lines — were filed in April, according to the city Department of Buildings.
But renovations ground to a halt there in May when the city slapped contractors with a stop-work order for improperly removing fire-halting equipment from the ceiling and for doing construction without posting the proper permits, DOB records show.
Once Spumoni Gardens opens, three of the most highly regarded pizza joints in the city will be within spitting distance of one another.
