Bricks Pizza Owner Predicts Mid-December Opening
Owner says he hopes to open Bricks Wood Fired Pizza & Café in downtown Wheaton by mid-December.
Bricks Wood Fired Pizza & Café should be open at 103 E. Front St. in downtown Wheaton by mid-December, co-owner Sam Vlahos said in an email Wednesday.
"We were with our contractor and landlord today and we believe if everything goes right we can hit a Mid-December deadline," he wrote. He said a few items were backordered, causing a slight delay.
He said the restaurant's sliding front windows will be installed next week.
Known for its wood fired brick oven pizzas ($9-$11), Bricks serves sandwiches baked in the wood fired oven, including a signature Chicken Pesto ($7), soups, salads, some appetizers and desserts.
Co-owner Bill Wilson said Bricks in Wheaton will differ from its original store in Lombard, with gelato and craft beer on the menu.
He said Wheaton is an ideal location for the restaurant because of its vibrant downtown.
"Wheaton always has been an interest for us only because of what goes on down there—there's a lot of activity. ... I think there's a need for it down there."
