The Phoenix area has been a popular place for Chicago area transplants for years its been the last couple of years that they’ve been able to get what some consider to be the best deep dish pizza in Arizona. With Giordano’s, Gino’s East and Lou Malnati’s arriving in the last couple of years it’s been Lou Malnati’s that has continued its expansion with recent announcement of a 2nd location and this week’s announcement of its 3rd in north Scottsdale.
Lou Malnati’s coming to Scottsdale
The anticipated opening of the third location in north Scottsdale is still a year away but fans of the popular pizzeria will enjoyed the largest of the Arizona locations when it opens. It will be in the new Chauncey Lane development near Scottsdale Rd. and Loop 101.
When the restaurant opens it will be 10,000 square feet with an outdoor patio and will employ over 150 people and offer a full bar in the restaurant.
Deep Dish Pizza
Malnati’s is known for its deep dish pizza that uses California grown vine ripened tomatoes, Mozzarella cheese from a Wisconsin dairy and scratch made dough that hold it all together with its flaky and buttery crust.
2nd location announced
A few weeks back word came that the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix will get the 2nd location which will be for take out, delivery and catering. The pizzeria will share space with local neighborhood restaurant Kitchen 56 on the southeast corner of 56th St & Indian School Rd.
The building is currently under renovation to give Kitchen 56 a fresh look and accommodate Lou Malnati’s. This location is scheduled to open in the fall.
If north Scottsdale fans of the deep dish pizza can’t wait til the summer of 2018 to get their fill of deep dish pizza the can head to the original Arizona location in Uptown Plaza at 100 E. Camelback Rd. Phoenix 85012. http://www.loumalnatis.com/
