Take A Look Inside ‘NOLA Pizza Co.’ Set To Open Inside NOLA Brewing This November

Back in August, we reported that NOLA Brewing Company is opening a pizza kitchen inside the taproom of its uptown location. The new spot will focus on New York-style pizza and will take over the former McClure’s Barbecue. 

As we approach November in the Big Easy, NOLA Pizza Co. is slated to open to the public on Sunday, November 1, 2020. The indoor/outdoor pizzeria will serve up traditional NYC style pizza. 

“I’m originally from New York and while we have some great types of pizza in New Orleans, there is definitely a dearth of good, thin-crust NYC pizza I grew up with,” said owner Doug Walner. “We have the equipment and capabilities to replicate the process of making the perfect dough and have brought on a talented New York pizza guy who knows all the trade secrets.”

That pizza guy is Culinary Director Brandon Byrd, whose vitae boasts more than 15 years of experience in top-tier restaurants including Momofuku Noodle Bar; Kith and Kin; Lenoir; Dinner Lab, and others.

The new renovations at NOLA will feature seating for 98 inside and 44 outside. The 5,300 square foot recently renovated space provides multiple areas and rooms including an upstairs dining area and balcony, as well as a spacious patio on

Barrels from the brewery serve as bases for multiple high tops inside and bench seating and distressed wood tables all work harmoniously to provide a casual rustic environment. TVs are situated throughout the space, providing a perfect perch for game days.
