I know, I know. Indie music and Uptown go together about as much as family friendly and lower Greenville. But trust me, I found it. And it’s awesome. And it comes with late night pizza.
If you know me, you know I’m not exactly an Uptown girl. I’m definitely more of a Henderson girl. And I never thought I’d be caught dead hanging out at a place that my parents used to frequent back in the early 90′s….but Sfuzzi is back, and it has won me (and everyone else I know) over.
Twenty five years ago, on this very street, Robert Colombo’s original Sfuzzi opened in Dallas. Known for it’s fresh, innovative Italian foods, and lively social setting, Sfuzzi became a McKinney Avenue landmark. Now, Sfuzzi is back. The new Sfuzzi harkens back to the roots of an old New York City pizzeria, centered on our commitment to serving fresh pizzas and pasta, wonderful wine and beverages, and, oh yes, a dash of great music.
True, the lady behind that great music is a dear friend of mine, but trust me when I say that DJ Elizabeth Farrell knows her stuff. Never a dull moment when this lady provides the soundtrack – there is always a dance off. Multiple dance offs, actually. Feel free to put in your requests…just don’t ask her for any top 40. (Heard on our last visit: Phantogram, Yeasayer, The Strokes, Geographer, Arcade Fire, The Black Keys…I could keep going. And we did. Until 3 AM.) (more…)
