Owners of the wildly popular White Duck Taco in the River Arts District are branching out.
Pizza Pura will open in a soon-to-be vacant studio at Pink Dog Studios on Depot Street in April, according to Ben Mixson, a co-owner of White Duck Taco.
The restaurant will be run by Mixson and wife Laura Reuss, but the operation is a collaboration with Pink Dog owners Randy Shull and Hedy Fischer. Pizza Pura should be open by April 1 and will serve Neapolitan-style pies, Mixson says.
He added that he’s humbled by the love shown to White Duck since it opened, and looks forward to starting the new venture.
