Denver Pizzeria Debuts In Texas With New York Pies In North Dallas

A pizza concept from Colorado is coming to Texas. Called Parry’s Pizzeria & Bar, it’s a Denver-based restaurant group known for its New York-style pizza and commitment to craft beer, and will open its first Texas location at the Grandscape development in The Colony.
According to a spokesperson, the restaurant will open at 5752 Grandscape Blvd., Ste. 140, in early 2020.
Parry’s was founded in 2007 outside Denver by David Parry, a native of New York who wanted to bring a New York-style pizzeria to the Denver suburbs. They’ve opened eight locations total in Colorado, and one outside the state in Charlotte, North Carolina, that opened in 2017.
While Parry’s started out as a small New York-style pizza joint with wings and beer, their menu has expanded to include sandwiches, appetizers, and more. Fans love their wings and fried dough.
Dishes at every location differ but might include curly fries, fried mac and cheese bites, calamari, and bruschetta.
Pizzas include familiar combos with a twist such as pepperoni with jalapeños and cream cheese; a white pie with steak, peppers, mushrooms, onions, and garlic; buffalo chicken with blue cheese crumbles; and a “loaded potato” pizza with potato, bacon, cheddar, and green onions.
There are calzones, wraps, and sandwiches including chicken parm, cheesesteak, meatball sub, sweet Italian sausage, fried chicken, and a huevos rancheros steak sandwich with green chili and fried eggs.
Desserts include fried dough, cheesecake, churros, and cannoli.
Parry’s is also heavily into craft beer, with lots of fun beer events. At The Colony location, they’ll feature more than 75 taps, including numerous local Texas brews.
Decor goes for “industrial New York warehouse,” and at the Grandscape, they’ll have a large patio.
In a statement, Parry’s CEO Jon Hook says they’re thrilled to enter the Dallas market. “Between the exploding craft beer scene and the family oriented culture, we know that Parry’s will find a great home in The Colony,” Hook says.
