Tribute Pizza Breaks Ground in North Park; Preps for June Opening

Wood-fired delights await.

We covered some of the most anticipated openings coming up this winter and spring, but Eater readers have asked for an update on Tribute Pizza, the pop-up that's going brick and mortar in a big way and building a 3,200-square-foot restaurant in the anchor space of the mixed-use North Park Post Office.

Owner Matthew Lyons shared some sketches of the project, which he says will break ground in the next week and is headed up by Blueprint Contracting (Saiko Sushi, Seven Grand) and architect Mike Burnett of FoundationForForm, one of the developers of the North Park Post Office complex.

Tribute's pizzas — topped with local produce and housemade sausage — will be cooked in a custom 91-square-foot wood fired oven. Lyons counts pizza guru Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco as a mentor so standards, and expectations, will be high. He expects the restaurant to be up and running by early to mid-June.
