Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson and Bobby Stuckey, co-founders of Pizzeria Locale, announced today that they signed a lease for a second Denver location for their pizza shop. The second Denver outpost of the pizzeria will be in the former Common Grounds space in Highlands Square. Located at 3484 West 32nd Avenue (right off 32nd & Lowell), the building housed the coffee shop for 20 years until last spring.
Pizzeria Locale Boulder opened at 1730 Pearl Street as a full-service restaurant in January 2011, adjacent to sister restaurant Frasca Food and Wine, which are both owned solely by Mackinnon-Patterson and Stuckey.
Last May, Pizzeria Locale Denver opened at 550 Broadway as the first fast-casual location. This new concept, created in partnership with Chipotle Mexican Grill, offered a simplified menu and a revolutionary custom-designed oven, cooking pizzas in under two minutes.
Pizzeria Locale Highland is slated to open in late 2014. A third Denver location is also in the works.
