Timone's Pizza, from local chef/restaurateur and Top Chef contestant Ron Eyester, is closing this weekend to add a deli component. The restaurant will shut down after service ends Sunday night and eventually reopen as Timone's Deli and Local Pizza Joint.
While it's a bit of a change, don't expect a huge overhaul of the concept. "It's not a remodel or rebrand of sorts," says Timone's PR.
There is no word yet on how long Timone's will be closed, what to expect from the deli, or what kind of sources will provide the product. An official announcement is expected next week, so keep an eye out for more details soon.
In other Angry Chef news, Eyester is aiming for the first two weeks of October to launch his forthcoming Atlantic Station concept, Diner. There is not a official targeted date yet, but the menu has been released.
