Fort Worth pizza enthusiasts, rejoice — Zoli’s NY Pizza is headed to Cowtown sometime next year.
The restaurant announced its first-ever expansion in an over-the-top video posted to Facebook, in classic Zoli’s style, complete with a Morgan Freeman impersonator as a voiceover actor and pizza whiz Lee Hunzinger staking a unicorn bust in the ground at the new location at 3501 Hulen Street.
According to owner Jay Jerrier, the Fort Worth outpost of Zoli’s will offer an expansive covered patio and green space. There will also be a window where diners can grab a cup of soft serve from Cow Tipping Creamery, the Austin-based ice cream shop that Jerrier’s PILF Restaurant Group brought to DFW in 2016. “We love Fort Worth and think Zoli’s and Cow Tipping Creamery have the perfect vibe for the area,” Jerrier said in a statement. “While Cane Rosso has its distinct style and concept, guests will experience something completely different from us with Zoli’s.”
The video also tells the story of Zoli’s original opening in Oak Cliff, where it operated for three years until impending development forced it out of the neighborhood. It was resurrected in Addison last year, and has returned to its place as one of the city’s finest pizza destinations. Now, the restaurant boasts an expanded menu, including sandwiches and pasta, and perhaps most importantly, booze.
Zoli’s NY Pizza is expected to make its Fort Worth debut in Spring 2019. Stay tuned for more details, and get ready for lots of ‘scronis. To prepare, watch the ridiculous video announcing Zoli’s expansion below:
Zoli's Pizza coming to Fort Worth in 2019
Since opening in Addison late last year, the #1 question that we have been asked the most isn't "Y U No Eat Gluten?" or "why is your restaurant decorated like a child's bedroom?," but rather..."when are you going to open one in Fort Worth?" Well, we heard you...and we'll see you on Hulen in 2019.Posted by Zoli's NY Pizza on Wednesday, May 23, 2018
