Cordato’s, a pizzeria in lower Manhattan, is offering an interesting value add: lap dances in a back room.
It’s a novel line extension to a proven formula and a move that will, no doubt, produce a, er, ah, spike in short-term sales. But, will a stunt like this work? Will Cordatta’s set record sales numbers this summer? My gut (before ingesting any pasta btw) says yes.
I predict Cordato’s will do well and the pizza patrons will love their ‘to go’ order. But, I have to believe neighborhood residents will give the pizzeria’s owners agita before all the shaking and baking is said and done.
Bottom-line? A short-term image boost for Cordato’s and its lap dancing gimmick followed by lots of long term problems with residents, the police and, eventually patrons.
This place has been around forever. You can also buy $40 worth of coke (not the beverage kind) and get a bj in the bathroom.
