The Two Hippies Pizza and Burger Joint, located in the strip mall at 4034 North 24th Street (24th Street and Indian School), has been shuttered for a little over two months -- and now it seems there's a new eatery preparing to open in its place.
A banner outside reads "602-468-DELI," which is either the new restaurant's name, its phone number, or both (When I called the number, the line hadn't been activated yet.)
A peek through the window shows a blackboard menu offering gourmet bagels, salads, soups, and sandwiches, with a focus on hoagies as the restaurant's specialty.
Details to come.
