Princeton Council tonight approved an application by the owners of Teresa Caffe to place a mobile pizza oven at 29 Hulfish Street in downtown Princeton. The mobile oven will be located in a parking bay outside the ‘Mediterra‘ restaurant. The adjacent square with the fountain will be dedicated for outdoor dining, as part of Princeton’s continuing efforts to increase outdoor dining opportunities in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The Terra Momo Restaurant group owns both Teresa Caffe and Mediterra. The pizzas will mostly be assembled in the kitchen of Mediterra. Teresa Caffe is currently closed for renovations.

Council considered the risk that smoke from the wood-fired oven might become a nuisance to passers-by in Palmer Square. If this becomes a persistent problem, the pizza oven will be shut down. The pizza oven will operate until 9 p.m. nightly.
