Zoli’s NY Pizza Tavern is the new restaurant concept from Jay Jerrier, owner of Il Cane Rosso. It’s New York-style pizza by the slice for people who “hate” Cane Rosso’s Neapolitan pizza. (I wouldn’t say “hate,” but I happen to be among those who can’t seem to appreciate the doughy texture of Jerrier’s authentic Neapolitan pies.)
And it’s coming as soon as May to 202 W. Davis, fka BEE Enchiladería, fka The Quinn, fka Long John Silver’s.
“If you hate Cane Rosso, you’ll love Zoli’s. True Old School NY style pizza joint — made with a love and a little bit of anger by a genuine I-talian from New York.”
That genuine “I-talian” is Lee Hunzinger, who lives in Dallas and is developing the menu with Jerrier.
Jerrier started Cane Rosso as a mobile business, offering catering and pop-up pizzerias from a brick oven on a trailer before opening Il Cane Rosso restaurant in Deep Ellum. Jerrier is planning a second Cane Rosso outpost near White Rock Lake.
