The Scoop: Italian carryout spot opening in Dutchtown

August 26th 02:08pm, 2010

082610_pizzaJoe DeLurgio, owner of JVincent’s FoodEdge Catering Co. on The Hill, has gone into the restaurant business. His new place, JVincent’s Pronto Pizza and Pasta, is located at 3804 Louisiana Ave., at Chippewa Street in the space formerly occupied by Pitstop Barbecue. The carryout-only eatery will feature grilled Sicilian-style pizza as well as a variety of pastas, salads and subs. Also on the menu are all-American faves like half-pound burgers, quarter-pound hot dogs, fries and mac and cheese that DeLurgio says he hopes will cater to the area’s residents. He’s even got a few entrées on the board, such as grilled pork chops and fillet mignon.

But JVincent’s “will not be a normal dive carryout joint,” DeLurgio said. The waiting area will be filled with abstract art that DeLurgio created. The hobby artist has painted the walls with Italian-themed colors. “It’s wavy like mountains – kind of showing the ups and downs in my life.”

If all goes as planned, DeLurgio will have more ups than downs after he opens the restaurant on Sept. 9. Thru the end of this year, JVincent’s will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Once 2011 rings in, the restaurant will unlock the doors six days a week, stay open until 10 p.m., and – come spring – add outside patio seating.

    My wife and I live a few blocks S of the PitStop location, and we indulged many a time in the tremendous grilled pizza Hubert prepared. Veggie, as I’m a vegetarian. We called it “crack-on-a-crust”, it was that good. I personally can’t attest to the Q he also prepared, but my wife said it was some of the best she’s had. Looking forward to the new restaurant here.
