Cool down in the Inferno this summer
Inferno Brick Oven & Bar is in for some big changes this summer. It's celebrating its 10th anniversary with some updates like new 4K HD TVs and a state-of-the-art audio system that spills the soundtrack of summer out into their outdoor dining area. Their menu is going to keep their signature favorites, like the blistery-perfect 10” artisan pizzas baked in their brick ovens at 700 degrees, but will be adding in to add some new options. They are now offering Neopolitan pizza by the slice until 3:30 Monday through Friday, along with a newcomer to the local food scene: Detroit-style pizza. This square, thick-crust, crispy-bottomed pizza comes with its own unique dough, sauce, cheese and toppings all made and baked in-house from scratch daily. New takes on stromboli and calzones will now be added to your bucket list. You can still find paninis, fresh salads and other modern Italian plates on their new menu.
They are also introducing a frozen drink machine just in time for summer. With tongue-in-cheek names like “Freisling” and “Frosé,” these frozen cocktails are equal parts delicious and fun, made with the high quality ingredients you've come to expect.
Inferno is part of the Dante's Restaurants and Nightlife family who are known for trend-forecasting, great pizza and made-from-scratch everything. Fifty-five years ago, Andy Zangrilli started HiWay Pizza in the same building Inferno now inhabits. Over the years, he introduced the area to pizza boxes (he rode the bus to Altoona to buy shirt boxes), vodka sauce he'd first tasted in Italy, and buffalo wings he'd sampled in Atlanta. In recent years, they brought in the first nitro coffee. So it's no wonder that Inferno is following in these footsteps with inventive new frozen drinks, and returning more deeply to their pizza-making DNA in the spot where it all began.
Head back to Inferno this summer for a casual but sophisticated lunch and dinner, and after hours for modern cocktails, Italian wine and craft beer while taking in the night’s sports action on the various new screens
