The hype has long been building around Cane Rosso, a Dallas-based pizzeria known for their VPN-certified pies and signature snark. The restaurant still has quite a ways to go, but eager diners can officially catch their first glimpse of Cane Rosso’s sleek new dining room in the Heights.
Owner Jay Jerrier says that the restaurant received its certificate of occupancy last night, and new photos show off the space, which looks to be nearing completion. As you’ll notice, the showstopper oven is a nice focal point for the dining room. Built by Stefano Ferrara in Italy like all of Cane Rosso's ovens, it was shipped straight to H-Town for installation.
"The Heights location is in a really cool space, maybe the nicest one in the fleet," says Cane Rosso spokesman Jeff Amador. "We have some pretty cool snakeskin wallpaper in the dining room, henceforth to be known as "The Viper Room."
Amador also notes that the graffiti painted on the restaurant’s front windows by a cranky vandal earlier this year has officially been cleaned off. In the meantime, the Cane Rosso team will focus on training their staff.
"We’ve all been waiting for the go-ahead from the City, and it finally happened this week," says Amador. "Now it’s just workworkworkwork...like that one song."
Still no word on an opening date just yet, but you can damn near taste those freshly-fired pies. In the meantime, try to remember: good things come to those who wait.
