Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier is shuffling around his Neapolitan pizza empire. After closing his Cane Rosso location in Fairview over the weekend, now he’s announced that the pizzeria will open its first Arlington location later this year.
That outpost will debut in Downtown Arlington’s Urban Union district, which is expanding along East Front Street. The mixed-use expansion plan calls for the construction of more than 55,000 square feet of restaurants, retail boutiques, bars, and loft apartments.
Cane Rosso is taking over the former Joe’s Radiator building at the corner of East Front Street & North East Street. The plans for the pizzeria’s late 2019 opening include a large patio, full-service bar, and of course, a showcase pizza oven.
Owner Jay Jerrier said in a press release: “We’ve had customers asking us to come to Arlington for years, and we finally felt the neighborhood vibe we were looking for with Urban Union. We love the vision for the area and feel like we’ll be a great fit with our new neighbors. We’ve got some really fun things planned for the space.”
The neighborhood is currently home to restaurants like 4 Kahuna’s Tiki Lounge, Board and Brush, Legal Draft Brewery, Tipsy Oak Ice House, Cartel Taco Bar, and an upcoming axe-throwing bar called Texas Axe Throwing Co.
