We have been hearing rumors that owner Martin Sprock had been thinking about putting another concept in where his The Italian Pie restaurant was on East Blvd. Sprock who started Moe's Southwest Grill, The Flying Biscuit and Monkey Joe's and several other concepts has been trying to figure out his next thing. He bought the Charlotte favorite Penguin and also has an interest in Leroy Fox in Cotswold, he is looking for a winning concept. Well apparently The Italian Pie is not in his future plans as there are signs saying they are now closed for business. We liked the Italian Pie but it was an uphill battle taking on Brixx which is 100 yards away. We will let you know Sprock's next venture. Below is the sign on the door indicating they are now closed for business.
