The third Pizza Man location will open to the public on Sunday, Dec. 18 in the Drexel Town Square at 7974 S. Main St. in Oak Creek.
With design by Rinka Chung, the restaurant resembles its sister locations, featuring distinctive wine bottle chandeliers, reclaimed barn wood, industrial elements and plenty of natural light. The new location seats 150 customers inside and will nearly double its capacity during clement months, thanks to a large patio space flanking the restaurant.
The menu will offer up Pizza Man favorites, including specialty pizzas, escargot and entrees like Chef Zak Baker's handmade wild boar ravioli. Like both other sites, the new location will also offer a broad wine selection, cocktails and local craft beer.
Unique aspects of the new location include a self-serve Cruvinet system in the wine bar, along with a hand-painted mural of the original restaurant. A private dining area features a 90-inch television that can accommodate slideshows and business presentations.
Beginning Dec. 18, Pizza Man Oak Creek will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Reservations are recommended for parties of seven or more.
