Soho Pizza Bar
Address: 2620 Regatta Dr.
Status: Open Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m to 9 p.m, until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and until 8 p.m. on Sunday
Filling out the very large waterfront home to Beni Velazquez's Isabela's and the former Republic Cuban-inspired coffee shop, Soho Pizza Bar has debuted at Desert Shores, offering New York style pies and the ambition to become a neighborhood fixture.
Offering local delivery and the prospect of future live music events, Soho Pizza has been created by the Best Italian Pizza Group, which operates five New York outer borough pizza locations.
On the menu, familiar appetizers such as Buffalo wings, garlic knots and fried calamari. Main dishes include "Philly cheese steak calzones," lasagna, and the "West Side fettuccini alfredo."
Pizzas range from a traditional New York cheese pie priced at $12 for the 12 inch and $18 for an 18 inch, a $24 square Sicilian built with pepperoni, Italian sausage and mozzarella and onto more exotic creations, like the "Taco Pie," topped with beef and chorizo and mozzarella.
They also serve the square shaped "Grandma's Pizza" for $26, made with a "thin crust family recipe from 1958 with fresh mozzarella, Italian ripen tomatoes and fresh basil."
