The original Butcher Bar location at 37-08 30th Avenue is going to be converted into a pizzeria, according to its owner.

Butcher Bar, which moved into its 70-seat restaurant next door at 37-10 30th Ave. at the beginning of 2015, held on to its original 20-seat space.

Matt Katakis, the owner, initially viewed the smaller space as one where he would host private parties. However, he recently he changed his mind.

Katakis confirmed that the location will become a pizzeria.  He added that Butcher Bar will be involved in the venture.
