Hey, eat this -- eventually

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 5:12 PM

In case you haven't checked our regular edition this week, here's some restaurat news of note:

Boulevard Bread owner Scott McGehee says he hopes to open a new wood-oven pizza restaurant in the next six to eight months.

He and business partner and chef de cuisine John Beachboard plan on calling the eatery Za-Za Fine Salad and Wood-Oven Pizza Company. Beachboard says he thinks the restaurant will “revolutionize the way Arkansans think about pizza, like Boulevard’s done with coffee and bread.”

McGehee says the pizza will be thin-crust, Napoli style (as shown as to toppings but probably a thinner crust), with fewer but fresher ingredients than typical pizza. Like Boulevard, it’ll be farm-supported and a completely green entity — everything will be compostable or biodegradable.

McGehee says they’ll offer 10 to 15 “amazing salads that will almost be the centerpiece” of the restaurant. Also, the restaurant will serve premium wine by the glass, draft beer, Italian-style espresso and cafe latte and homemade gelato.

The restaurateurs don’t have a location yet.
