The popular Neapolitan-style pizza shop Citizen Pie (15710 Waterloo Rd., 216-417-2742) announced back in September of last year that it had inked a deal for a second location in Ohio City. One year later, it's almost time to open the doors.
Citizen Pie (2144 West 25th St.) will debut next Tuesday, September 12. Diners will find a similar menu to the Collinwood original but a much larger space — about 1,700 square feet — with plenty of tables and counter seating.
"It's just this tiny little place, but we have become a destination," owner Claudia Young told us earlier this year of the east-side location. The Ohio City outpost, about a block south of the West Side Market, will likely become a destination too, and will certainly be capable of handling far more customers.
The team, which includes chef Vytauras Sasnauskas, will also be adding soft-serve ice cream to the OC menu. “We’re going to take our time with the soft serve,” Sasnauskas told Cleveland.com
. “We want to make it perfect, where we can try different flavors and do some interesting things.”
