Katie Lee announced via Facebook on Friday afternoon that she will be leaving Katie's Pizzeria Café, the upscale pizza and hot-waitress repository that bears her name, to open a new restaurant. Katie's will remain open -- good news for those addicted to the crisp egg-and-speck pizza and downy ricotta doughnuts.
Reached for comment, Lee declined, promising a press release when she has something to say.
More to come as we learn it.
