Numero 28 to Open on Forest Hills’ Restaurant Row Early January

Numero28 location

Dec. 14, 2017 By Tara Law

A popular Manhattan-based pizzeria chain will serve up classic Neapolitan-style pizza on Forest Hills’ restaurant row starting next month.

Numero 28 Pizzeria, known for serving pizza and pasta cooked in wood-fired ovens, will open a location in early January at 107-12 70th Road, restaurant co-owner Remo Biamonte confirmed.

The location is the former site of Mediterranean restaurant The Grill, which closed earlier this month. The owner of The Grill said the restaurant closed in response to rising rent.

The existing Numero 28 restaurants have received praise for their cozy atmosphere and high-quality pizza. The wood-fired, thin crust red and white pizza is served in 14-, 18- or 29-inch pies. The pizza recipe has been handed down through five generations, according to the restaurant’s website.

The restaurants also serve bruschetta, antipasti, soups and salads.

Numero 28 currently operates six locations in New York City, as well as restaurants in Austin, Miami and London.

The existing Numero 28 pizzerias in New York also provide delivery.

Quality pizza is always appreciated. I’m familiar with Numero 28, and they certainly make excellent pizza.


Wow, I actually think this is a big deal. No. 28 is highly regarded and for them to expand to Forest Hills is breaking a glass ceiling of sorts. Also, the xian opening in Woodside is interesting, but they are using it as a test kitchen so that makes more sense. This is definitely one of the most high end pizzerias in NYC.

Looks very interesting, I. Hope they will also have gluten free crust for the pizza as well as gluten free pasta. Many people suffer from celiac disease and want to enjoy more Italian food choices.

Robin, I went in there today to ask about GF options and met the owner who is celiac. They will have a dedicated prep area to make GF in around a month. He was incredibly nice!


Their pizza is nothing like what we have in FH. I worked for years near one of their locations and it is very legit. Not at all like NY-slice style at Gloria’s or NY-brick style at Nick’s.
