“You know, the beauty of Harvest is, you’re gonna walk out having great flavors,” Magrogan tells KYW Newsradio.  “It’s gonna feel great, but you’re not gonna walk out feeling like a food zombie.  You won’t be in a food coma.  You’ll feel healthy, you’ll be able to go to that movie you want to go to, you’ll be able to go out and have drinks and do other things you want to do.”

Co-owner Brian Dwyer promises an experience like no other:

“This idea started as a pizza-centric art show that we curated with a lot of artists in the area, and it quickly snowballed into what you see now two years later — it’s a pizzeria that also acts as, coincidently, the world’s first pizza museum!”
