Dallas-Fort Worth-based restaurant group PILF, which includes Neapolitan pizza brand Cane Rosso and soft serve ice cream shop Cow Tipping Creamery among its concepts, announced May 23 that it will open a second location of its recently re-launched New York style Pizzeria and Italian-American restaurant, Zoli’s, in Fort Worth on Hulen Street. Jay Jerrier, founder of the group, opened Cane Rosso on West Magnolia Avenue in 2014 and knew that he wanted to bring Zoli’s to Fort Worth soon after opening the Addison location.
“This Zoli’s is being designed to be a community hangout with a large covered patio and green space all within walking distance of great neighborhoods on the west side. In fact, we are trying something new with this location by adding in a Cow Tipping Creamery ice cream window where guests can order ice cream right from the patio or inside the restaurant,” said Jerrier. “We love Fort Worth and think Zoli’s and Cow Tipping Creamery have the perfect vibe for the area. While Cane Rosso has its distinct style and concept, guests will experience something completely different from us with Zoli’s.”
The New York style pizzeria is led on the culinary side by Chef Lee Hunzinger, a Long Island born and bred pizzamaker who is the creative force behind the pizza, pasta and dessert offerings on the menu.
“Zoli’s pizza is tossed New York style, and our pasta, salads and desserts are very much a reflection of the American view of Italian favorites,” said Chef Hunzinger. “We serve square and round pies, pasta carbonara, calzones, you name it. If your Italian grandmother cooked it for Sunday dinner, I’m pretty sure we have it on the menu,” Lee offers.
Zoli’s will be located at 3501 Hulen Street in Fort Worth, located between Interstate 30 and the Chisholm Trail Parkway. The development is led by Supine Development.
