NEW OPENINGS AND RETURNS
Garrett Fitzgerald’s popular minimalist pizza pop-up, which specializes in 16-inch American-style pies laden with local ingredients, has a new permanent home. The operation is moving into the space inside Batch 206 Distillery, where it will be able to increase its output thanks to more space and an incoming pizza oven and mixer. Preorders are available but optional. Starting this weekend, the spot will begin serving slices on the weekends with limited indoor seating on a first-come, first-served basis. There’s also ample outdoor seating at Holy Mountain Brewing, available for reservation through their website. Private dinners for groups will be available at Dantini Pizza through Instagram DMs.
