The Dallas foodie scene took a hit earlier this year when Zoli's NY Pizza, the Oak Cliff spot from Jay Jerrier with showstopping pies, shuttered its original location near Bishop Arts District in anticipation of a $57 million urban development. The eatery was expected to reopen in another neighborhood, though no one knew where or when. Until today.
Zoli's is moving into a new 4,500-square-foot space in Addison, near the intersection of Midway Road and Beltway Drive. CultureMap, which was first with the news, reports the building was formerly a Snuffer's.
The pizzeria is expected to open by November, and because of its added square footage, Zoli's will not only serve longtime favorites like garlic knots and you-just-did-what-to-a-pizza slices, but a much broader menu of New York-style Italian eats, such as "ridiculous sandwiches, pasta, entrees and a whole lot more," says a post on Facebook.
Perhaps the biggest news to come out of an already epic bomb is who will be in the kitchen. Chef Lee Hunzinger will return alongside chef Cody Sharp, who left the buzzy Filament restaurant in Deep Ellum in April.
Here's how Zoli's cleverly announced the news:
Crews are working to reinvent the new Addison space, but Zoli's promises at least one piece of the original location will pop up there -- the infamous snarky sign.
