Brooklyn-brick-oven-style pizza restaurant opens on East Colfax Avenue

The 80-seat restaurant is a hybrid of styles, offering full table service but also allowing patrons to order and pay from their tables if they want.

DC Pie Co., a Brooklyn brick-oven pizza restaurant launched by noted Miami restaurateur Dominic “DC” Cavagnuolo,” has opened at the site of a former clock and watch repair shop at 2223 E. Colfax Ave.

The East Colfax location was most recently occupied by Brik on York, a wood-fired pizza kitchen and wine bar that opened in July 2015 and closed in December 2017.

The new restaurant — open for dinner during the week and for lunch and dinner on weekends — offers homemade sauce and fresh ingredients reminiscent of the New York neighborhood where Cavagnuolo grew up. It also serves wings, meatballs, salads and desserts.

For this venture, Cavagnuolo is partnering with Mary Zayaruzny, a 20-year industry veteran who has opened restaurants previously in cities from New York to Miami to Moscow.
