Some good news for Park Towne Village: Al's Pizza will take part of the space formerly occupied by Tavern on the Park. Josh Beaver, who is PTV's Director of Leasing, confirmed that Al's has a lease in place and construction should start in the near future.
Here is Josh who is with the Nichols Company. He also said they are in discussions with a couple of other concepts for the center and hopes to announce who they are soon.
Al's Pizza, based out of Jacksonville with six locations across the Sunshine State, features hand-tossed New York-style thin crust, Sicilian-style thick crust and gourmet hand-tossed pizzas. They also have salads, calzones and other traditional Italian dishes. Al's offers deliveries of larger orders to help you cater a gathering of friends, colleagues or family in a pinch. The interior is more upscale than most pizza places.
Al's also features a lunch menu where everything is $4.99 which should make for a brisk lunch business.
They have beer and wine which goes well with Italian food. Restaurant Traffic will find out if they will have a full bar here in Charlotte since each Al's is unique.
