Today at 11 a.m., Pizzeria Republica opened the doors to its second location, downtown at 890 14th Avenue, right beside the Colorado Convention Center.
The 5,000-square-foot, 160-seat space will look nearly identical to the Greenwood Village location with a slightly expanded bar and a sizable 4,000-square-foot patio. The large patio, facing 14th Street, features a fireplace and seating for 100 guests.
The menu, designed by George Eder, owner and executive chef, will remain aligned with the Pizza Republica roots, offering the same menu items as the Greenwood Village location. The bar programs will similarly mirror the original location with the wine program and modern takes on classic cocktails directed by Rona VanSlyck.
"I'm want to expose the city of Denver to the things that made the Greenwood Village location such a success," says Eder. "I opened Pizza Republica to expose Colorado to the flavors and hospitality I enjoyed growing up in my family." Eder also notes that favorites such as his Grandmother's stuffed shells and the popular Pizza Republica meatballs will be highlights of the downtown menu.
The downtown Pizza Republica will be open seven days a week with lunch service beginning at 11 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Dinner is from 3:30 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. On Sundays, Pizza Republica will be open from 3:30 to 9 p.m.
