Pizza Domenica, the upcoming casual pizza expansion from Domenica's John Besh and Alon Shaya, is most likely heading Uptown. According to R. Stephanie Bruno the duo have applied for a conditional use permit with the City Planning Commission for The Mission Revival building (where dat Vitamin Shoppe is, dawlin) on the corner of Magazine and Robert.
Besh spokeswoman Emery Whalen tells the TP that "plans are still preliminary" for the 4935 Magazine space (The CPC will review the application on August 27), but call for a "3,200-square-foot restaurant that would serve artisanal wood-fired pizzas and maybe salads and small plates, as well as alcoholic beverages." Apparently the Vitamin Shoppe will still remain open with the addition of Pizza Domenica to the building, so you can get some Hydroxycut, or other weight loss supplement usually advertised during Cheaters, to help chisel away that Burrata-induced belly fat, brah. Besh and Shaya were also considering locations in Mid City, but now appear solely focused on this location.
