Upstate Pizza and Subs of Troy, NY clarified yesterday that they weren't related to Upstate Urology, another establishment, located in another part of town, and using the same name as the sub and pizza shop.
David Grushim, proprietor of the eating establishment, said "If you're looking for a delicious Italian cold cut combo sub, or a meat lover's or Hawaiian pizza, or even a combination of both, then you can rest assured that Upstate Pizza will take great care of you. If your needs run more along the lines of a kidney ultrasound or a urine cytology lab study, then Upstate Urology may be more of what you're looking for."
He went on to say that there had seemed to be some confusion at first, and one patron even came in and "Asked if he could use the restroom to urinate." Grushim said that he "made it clear to the patron that there wasn't going to be any lab testing of his urine, and I think he was legitimately surprised since the patron looked totally dumbfounded to hear this. It was then I realized that there must be some confusion since both us and the medical clinic use the same name."
Grushim went on to say that his goal is to provide great Italian subs and pizza at a sensible price. He assured his patrons that "if this superb food results in urinary system health, that's great, but we're content to leave that goal to the other businesses not involved in the preparation of great dining experiences."
