Innovative Chef Lanny Lancarte announced today that Fantasma Kitchens has launched Pizza Zapasta and El Pollo Tocayo. The kitchen is located on the footsteps of Fort Worth’s trending North Side, joining Lancarte’s first all-delivery concept, Eat Fajitas, the fiesta delivered to your door. All three concepts will be located under a singular roof inside a renovated Methodist Church.
Fantasma Kitchens (fantasma defines as ghost in Spanish), will be Lancarte’s second venture into the ghost kitchen movement and completes his trio of food concepts. Eat Fajitas, El Pollo Tocayo, and Pizza Zapasta will be available “ghost-style,” served to customers in to-go and delivery options available within the Fantasma Kitchens app.
Sylvan Avenue Tavern (SAT) sailed smoothly through its first official opening week at Sylvan Thirty, bringing its signature take on artisan pizza and a wide menu, along with craft beer, a full bar, tavern games like pool and pinball, and a shaded rooftop patio that overlooks downtown Dallas.
A sibling to the popular Bryan Street Tavern (BST), SAT plans to inspire the same devotion in locals, enticing people to enjoy a true neighborhood tavern experience with a varied scratch-made menu featuring “Readers Choice for Best Pizza in DFW,” salads, wings, sandwiches and pastas. The bar is more than just cold beer—there is a thoughtfully curated selection of craft cocktails with premium spirits and a bar staff who aims to please. TVs adorn most walls making SAT an ideal place to catch a game. SAT is the only restaurant/bar in the area with a late-night kitchen open until 2AM.
Olivella’s Pizza and Wine Shop, Dallas-Fort Worth’s critically acclaimed Roman and Neapolitan pizza kitchen, is launching late-night weekend hours for carryout and delivery. Starting August 13, on Fridays and Saturdays until 2 a.m. in Dallas and midnight in Fort Worth, Olivella’s can be picked up or delivered.
It is also augmenting its already-robust pizza offering to include Detroit-style pizza as a late-night-only option at its Camp Bowie location in Fort Worth. Building on its legacy of century-old recipes from one of Naples, Italy’s oldest pizza families, the nationally recognized traditional Italian pizzeria is creating a unique Detroit-style pizza using beloved old-style Italian flavors. Detroit pizza, which features sauce on top of the pie and a thicker, rectangular crust, will only be available during late-night shifts via Olivella’s delivery or third-party delivery in Fort Worth. It will be available at the restaurant’s Dallas locations later this fall.
