We knew it was coming; we just didn’t expect it to be this soon.

Zoli’s NY Pizza, the fast-casual crispy crusted cousin of Cane Rosso, is closing. Its last day in business will be Sunday, Feb. 14, reports Culture Map.

Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier opened Zoli’s in a former Long John Silver’s on Zang at Davis in 2013. Jerrier originally described Zoli’s, which offers traditional New York pizza, as an answer to those of us who find the limp crust of Cane Rosso’s authentic Neapolitan pizza unappealing.

12122807_774708709307533_3928442022232062569_nJerrier said last year that Zoli’s likely would close this spring, prior to the expected start this summer of construction on Alamo Manhattan’s Bishop Arts gateway project. He says the Zoli’s building, which previously housed Monica Greene’s experimental Bee Enchiladería and the neighborhood tavern Quinn, is in bad shape.

Jerrier told Culture Map: “The building is in dire need of massive and very expensive repairs, and we want to get out of there before the place becomes uninhabitable and collapses on itself like Poltergeist.”

He says another version of Zoli’s likely will reopen somewhere in North Dallas.

  • It was a neat place, but Bishop Arts can only support one quirky/delicious pizzeria and everyone knows what that is (it starts with an E). As more people move to the area, perhaps that will change.

  • The cute signs really did nothing for me. They might as well post “Your Type Ain’t Welcome Here”…come to think of it, they did post that once or twice.
