Old Venice to Morph into Venice Kitchen

Posted By on Mon, Nov 12, 2018 at 9:33 AM


Old Venice Pizza Company is getting a makeover. It will now be Venice Kitchen. The revitalized Venice is set to open November 19th.

"We became dated," says Ben McLean, who is partnering in the project with David Buescher. "It's time for a refresh."

If McLean's name is familiar, that's because he founded Belly Acres and Tennessee Taco Company.

Part of that refresh is a revamp of the menu. Pizzas have been pared down to 11. New menu items will be added as well.

The space has been opened up, with walls removed, new fixtures, and a new color scheme.

Rob Ray will be in charge of the kitchen. New ovens, ranges, and a grill for steaks and salmon have been put in the kitchen. Ray emphasizes high quality and fresh ingredients.

"We're not doing this for us," says McLean, "we're doing this for our customers."
