Eater Vegas is hearing that Sacramento-based Pizza Rock has its eye on a Downtown location of the pizza/club/bar concept. Owner Tony Gemignani has plans for two eventual locations in Vegas, with the first a version of his Pizza Rock. Gemignani is a pizza god in the San Francisco area with Tony's Pizza Napoletana serving up "the most unique and comprehensive pizzeria in the nation, if not the world," at least according the USA Today.
Last year, Gemignani opened 900 Degrees in New York City’s West Village, which closed after irreconcilable differences between the partners four months into the project. The joint offered four different styles of pizza — Neapolitan, Roman, Sicilian and "tomato pies" during its short tenure.
