Pizza Luce is (probably) coming to Lex-Ham
Pizza Luce has purchased the former Whitehouse Color building on the 1100 block of Selby Avenue (just west of the Selby-Dunlap intersection). If you're not familiar with Pizza Luce, in my humble opinion they are the best pizzeria in the Twin Cities - hands down. (Unless you're looking for good ol' greasebucket pizza served in a dark and dingy atmosphere alongside East Side barflies, in which case I would recommend Red's Savoy Inn.) The Pizza Luce menu has something for everyone - from vegans to confirmed carnivores and all of us in between. Even better, they treat their employees decently: good wages, happy working conditions, and benefits for everyone who works over 32 hours a week.
This will be a perfect fit for our neighborhood. Apparently, they hope to be open in November - provided they can get a few minor variances for the city. If you are a Lex-Hammer and you want to see this happen, contact Ward 1 City Councilwoman Debbie Montgomery and let her know that you are excited about Pizza Luce coming the neighborhood and that you support the granting of reasonable variances to make that happen.
