'Soft opening' for The Independent Pizzeria

We've been waiting and waiting, but the day has finally arrived when we can test out the new eatery in the 'hood, The Independent Pizzeria, successor to Impromptu (4235 E Madison Street). They had sort of a stealth opening this evening at 5:00 (no big announcement, no fanfare), and by the time I arrived on the scene at 5:20 they had already served their first customer. I just missed getting the shot (I guess the guy took his pizza to go, though there is limited seating). Here are a couple of photos to give you an idea of the place.

All I can tell you is there are seven pizzas on the menu (that's a mini pizza in the shot above, not the regular size), with more pizzas to be added later. Wine and beer.
Owner Tom Siegel promises to divulge all the details to me when they're fully up and running. In the meantime, you can go check the place out for yourselves. The pizza smelled great.
