Pizza lovers, rejoice! Local pizza shop Whirled Pies is now operating the restaurant portion of popular venue Cozmic at 199 W. 8th Ave. Don’t worry, though — you can still catch all your favorite shows and events at the venue, because all but the restaurant has remained the same.
“We’re still having very frequent shows through Cozmic Presents,” Whirled Pies co-owner Laurel Bui explains. “We’re definitely using it as a venue and we’ve kept the same promotor and website.”
Bui says Whirled Pies at Cozmic offers the same menu of pizza, salads and calzones as the first establishment on Monroe Street, which is still open and operational.
Everything is made from scratch, she says, with local meats and organic veggies. The only difference between the two restaurants is that the Cozmic restuarant will not have a happy hour.
For now, Whirled Pies at Cozmic is open from 5-9 pm or later if a show is playing past 9 pm. Bui says the restaurant at Cozmic offers five to six taps with local beer and cider, as well as wine by the glass.
Whirled Pie co-owners Eowyn Bondurant and Kaj Kaldahl are running the Cozmic restaurant while Bui continues to man the Monroe location, Bui says.
