Well, maybe not a phoenix. In fact it looks like Pizza di Mano all over again, except this time with a bocce ball court and beer garden. While hardly groundbreaking in its conceptual design, perhaps—just perhaps—this will be enough for the location to actually make a go of it.
For the record, Rustic has not yet opened. No doubt you’re ready to pencil the date into your calendars. In the meanwhile you can peruse the menu in the window. It contains a lot of pizza.
