Cant wait to try this place in Charlotte, In location formerly of Town
Charlotte Magazine and Charlotte Observer are both reporting >>>>>>>
Restaurateur extraordinaire Pierre Bader is collaborating with Peter Reinhardt to open Pie Town. The "artisanal pizzeria" will take the place of Town, in Gateway Village. The restaurant opens September 6. Reinhardt is Chef on Assignment at Johnson and Wales, is a two-time James Beard Award winner, and has written several food books, including American Pie: My Search for the Perfect Pizza. Tim Groody, Bader's chef at Sonoma Modern American, also is part of the collaborative effort.
"There are really only two kind of pizzas," Reinhart says in a release. "Good and very good. But by very good I mean memorable, the kind of pizza you can't wait to tell your friends about, to return to time and time again; the kind of pizza that excites your imagination and causes you to say, ' I didn't know pizza could be that good.' There are currently only a few places operating at that level nationally and our goal at PIE TOWN is to be one of them, to set a new benchmark locally for what pizza can be."

They talk the talk, soon we will see if they walk the walk.

The website is not yet complete but looks like it will be soon.
