Ian’s Pizza By the Slice, 2035 E. North Ave., applied for a Class C Wine Retailer’s License. However, OnMilwaukee.com found out moments ago that an ad hoc group of East Side neighbors did not support the effort and Ian's has since put the request on hold.
According to Jim Plaisted, president of the East Side Business Improvement District, the business organization on the East Side has not make a statement against the license.
The Madison-based Ian’s opened this first Milwaukee location at the end of 2009 and opened a second eatery at 146 E. Juneau Ave. in 2012. The Downtown location does not have a liquor license either.
There are two Ian's in Madison and one in Denver, Colo.
The only question here is what pairs better with Ian’s mac ’n’ cheese pizza: red or white?
