Govinda’s at Broad and South adding vegan pizzeria next door

Govinda’s, the vegetarian stalwart holding down the corner of Broad and South, is remodeling the space next door for a vegan pizzeria.

The new pizzeria, at 1408 South St., is taking over the space that had been Govinda’s To Go, the takeout version of the sit-down restaurant at the corner.

This is at the corner of Broad and South. You can see the awning of the new place in the background.

An employee said they originally started making small renovations to the space but eventually decided on a complete redesign as an eat-in restaurant. He wasn’t sure of the timeline for the completion, but from the looks of it inside, they can’t be far off. Our guess is less than a month out.

The sit-down Govinda’s will remain as is, and takeout is still available.  They also plan to relaunch delivery, via bike, as soon as things start thawing outside.

    Crazy Krishnas – I’m not even sure what part is considered “sit down” versus “takeout” and why do they need to create a new separate “pizza”restaurant?
    Whatever, I didn’t eat there for 10 years because, when they moved from 4th and South to Broad and South, they only put up a sign that said “Art Gallery/Cafe” so I had assumed they closed the restaurant. Like I said, Crazy Krishnas – the food is really good (probably the best vegetarian in the city) but they have no idea how to market what they got.
