Pizazz! Pizza Bistro at 1763 E. Prince Road is now Prince Pizza and Family Restaurant, and it’s gotten an overhaul since the new owner took over.
Andrew Yun bought the restaurant last October and changed the name, but signs on the building make it look like it's still Pizazz. The only indication of the change is a banner that's hard to see from the street.
Yun most recently owned and operated an Asian restaurant in Los Angeles. He owned a video store here in the 1980s.
His new restaurant serves pizza, sandwiches, appetizers and other items. Ground beef is the only ingredient that gets frozen. Yun calls the food “very healthy.”
People who have eaten there seem happy. From one e-mail:
The new owners are incredibly nice! Some of the wait staff are the same and seem to really appreciate their new owners. They have refurbished a good menu into a great one. It seems gourmet food in a family restaurant.
The wine list was crafted by master sommelier Laura Williamson, one of the only female master sommeliers in the world. Most of the wines come from small-scale Italian wineries, said Yun.
He also mentioned severals specials that we didn't write down, but we distinctly remember hearing "$1.25 12-ounce draft beers" and "buy one, get another one for half-off, Sunday through Thursday."
Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Sunday.
