SPRING MENU LAUNCH 2021
Mark your calendars — our new Spring Menu launches March 31.
We’re changing it up this spring with a whole lot of NEW. On Wednesday, March 31, we’re introducing more than 10 dishes, from comfort food classics with Italian roots to some light and refreshing dishes to stay in tune with the season.
“Overall, you’ll see a lot of colour in our Spring Menu — a lot of fresh, vibrant vegetables,” says Christina Zoubos, Head Chef at Virtuous Pie Victoria. “We listened to feedback from our guests and created more vegetable-forward items, while keeping people’s dietary restrictions, preferences, and needs in mind.”
And we’re not just talking pizzas and ice cream. While those will of course be a staple, we’re also bringing a brand new starter lineup: a new and improved Italian Meatballs (they’re gluten-free this time!), Summer Succotash, and White Bean + Artichoke Dip. And you’ll just have to keep reading to find out about our new dessert — spoiler alert: it’s an Italian classic.
STARTERS + SALADS
“We wanted to create some snackable dishes for guests to enjoy,” says Jim Vesal, Director of Culinary. “Whether that’s at the beach, a park, or on a patio, we saw an opportunity to offer dishes that complement our pizzas well, or stand great on their own.”
