Last night we received a call from our favorite lawyer—forever looking out for our best interests—alerting us that Downtown Toledo’s newest restaurant had opened it’s doors. I normally wouldn’t bother with a non-locally owned restaurant but Pizza Papalis is based out of Detroit which at least makes it regional. Anyway, it’s important to me to support any and all businesses investing in Downtown (as it should be to all Toledoans).
We were seated on the second floor, overlooking the Mudhen’s field. By Spring this restaurant will be slammed with business and it seems they’ve planned to accommodate that with massive dining areas on both floors and a bar with garage-type doors that will likely be opened come warmer weather.
Featured are the deep dish pizzas known as “Chicago-style”. We had ours with onion, sausage and black olives. The small-sized pie was more than enough to fill D. and I, and we returned home with leftovers. If we could have eaten it all right then we would have… the pizza was incredibly good. Likewise was the service. From hostess to busboy to owner, Joe Sheena. *Handclap*
