Have you tried the amazing pizza at Piro Brick Oven & Barroom? Well, don’t be panicked when you see a new sign go up, South Main’s newest restaurant and the Empress of Little Rock’s new go-to pizza place, is going to undergo a name change and re-branding.
Piro Brick Oven & Barroom, which opened in February of this year, will change their name to Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom starting tomorrow, July 21st. Additionally Raduno announced plans to add growler filling service to their outstanding curated craft beer lineup.
The name change comes to avoid confusion with Pyro Fresh Fire Pizza in Memphis. They decided a name change now early on in the restaurant’s life would help prevent potential confusion and allow easier expansions into new markets down the road.
“This is simply a name change, not a new restaurant by any means,” says Bart Barlogie, co-owner of the restaurant. “The top priority will continue to be the quality of our menu and customer service. We can’t thank our customers enough for the overwhelming support over the past few months and can’t wait to share this next chapter with them.”
Barlogie says “raduno” translates to mean a place of gathering, meeting, get together, or rally in Italian. Raduno Brick Oven & Barroom hopes they will continue to do just that by serving as a place for people to spend time together and enjoy great food.
The name change will officially take place on July 21. Hours will remain the same: Tuesday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Happy hour specials include $2 off draft beer and $1 off wines by the glass and specialty cocktails Tuesday-Friday from 3-6 p.m.
