You could say fate (or maybe Santa?) has brought an early, delicious Christmas gift to the town of Lambertville, NJ. The much anticipated opening of Liberty Hall Pizza, an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria, will happen five days before Christmas, this Saturday, December 20.
I should have known my karma was good when I scored a great parking space near Rojo’s on North Union Street. I was having a late afternoon coffee with a colleague. When we emerged an hour and a half later, the first thing I saw was a truck blocking in my car.
But wait. Something was going on. Of course! Liberty Hall Pizza is right next door and that was the source of all the commotion. They were receiving their custom-made communal table made by Sourland Woodwork in collaboration with metalworker Tom Pisano. Here are some of the pictures I caught, along with a hot pizza to take home (which, by the way, was chewy, fresh and yummy).

Pizza artisan Chris Bryan and business partner Danny Popkin of Modern Recycled Spaces® will fire up their wood-fired Valoriani oven and swing open the doors to their 50-seat BYOB this Saturday, December 20 at 5 pm. Neapolitan pizza lovers who’ve been clamoring for a taste of their leopard-spotted, chewy-crusted, charred pizzas, garden-fresh salads and draught root beer floats will get their wish!
Liberty Hall Pizza is located inside the Canal Studios Complex at 243 North Union Street in Lambertville, NJ.
