Due to open in Spring 2017.
Takeaway Pizza, from the team behind Dexter, is really two venues in one: a local pizza spot, and a bar for late-night drinks and dancing on the weekends.
The bar is set to open opposite Dexter on High Street and serve American-style pizza, as well as entrees and snacks from the cocktail bar. It will be licensed until 1am on weekends.
The old embroidery warehouse will seat up to 50 people, with outdoor seating on a front deck. Inside, an old narrow showroom with a low-trussed roof will be home to a long bar serving wine, beer and cocktails – classics and more wacky options such as a Popcorn Coco Libre with buttered rum, salted popcorn and candied lime, served in a movie cup.
The shopfront window will serve 22-inch Coney Island, New York-style pizza by the slice. There’ll be up to four flavours at a time, with a full menu of 15 whole 12-inch pizzas too.
The pizzas will showcase Dexter’s meat expertise, as well as its flair for invention and breaking tradition – experimenting with hot-smoking and cold-smoking flour, tomatoes and other veggies. Classic toppings will still be on offer, but with a slight twist.
Starters, bar snacks (think a playful take on an American corn dog in the vein of Dexter’s signature meat doughnut) and house-made charcuterie will be available alongside pizza.
