Feeling a deep lack of deep dish pizza lately? It might be because south Minneapolis pizzeria Di Noko's
closed seemingly abruptly on November 10. But owner Rich Moore and business partner Travis Phillips have announced plans to reopen in a new location, and thankfully it's happening soon.
On November 22, Di Noko's will launch a new dine-in concept with a causal sports-bar vibe called Di Noko's-Bar Zia in the downtown space formerly occupied by Tickles.
The major difference between the original Di Noko's and the new Di Noko's-Bar Zia is that diners will have the option of eating in the restaurant, whereas before their deep dish, wings, and garlic bread were available only for takeout or delivery.
To help foster the neighborhood hangout feel they're going for, Di Noko's-Bar Zia will have several taps dedicated to local beer, reasonably priced wines, and craft cocktails. In addition to the deep dish and Italian classics that made them so well loved in south Minneapolis, Moore says they plan to expand the menu a bit once they get rolling in the new location. Expect more casual fare like burgers, chicken sandwiches, and Philly cheesesteaks.
Di Noko's Bar-Zia will also serve lunch and offer delivery on orders within a certain range of the restaurant, including downtown, south Minneapolis, and all the way up to Broadway in Northeast.
