A new pizza concept is scheduled to open this year in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, according to a state filing.
Called “The Other Side of Good Pizza,” the restaurant will be located at 2538 Elm St., near the mixed-use development The Epic. The opening will follow a remodel of 2,298 square feet of the single-story brick masonry building, at a projected cost of $147,000, the filing shows. The renovations are scheduled to be completed this month.
The restaurant is owned by John Munoz, according to the state document. He did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
What Now Dallas reported that Munoz also created Elm St. Saloon and Will Call Bar. In Deep Ellum, Munoz’s pizza place will be neighbored by Big Guys Chicken & Rice, Armoury D.E., AllGood Cafe, Adair’s Saloon, Angry Dog, Backyard, and The Biscuit Bar.
Deep Ellum, originally called “Deep Elm” because much of the residential and commercial activity of the area was around Elm Street, was established in 1873. Today, the character of the neighborhood is defined by 20 historically recognized buildings, including one of the first Ford automobile plants that’s now the Adam Hats Lofts.
Another landmark, Continental Gin Company — the first cotton gin factory built by Robert S. Munger just before the turn of the 20th century — eventually became a mixed-use property after hosting artist lofts for several years.
Other landmarks in Deep Ellum include the Boyd Hotel, Parks Brothers Warehouse, and the Palace Blacksmith Shop.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing for The Other Side of Good Pizza lists Plano-based Marfay Engineering and Construction as the design firm.
