Kenny Bowers to open Kenny’s East Coast Pizza in Plano

 Kenny's East Coast Pizza

As a native Bostonian, Kenny Bowers grew up surrounded by great pizza.  Now, heโ€™ll bring that classic, East Coast style of pizza to North Texas when he opens Kennyโ€™s East Coast Pizza in Planoโ€™s Berkeley Square shopping center at the prime intersection of Park and Preston.

โ€œI love bringing real food to real people,โ€ explains Bowers, who has successfully created casual, full service experiences with Italian-American, burgers and barbecue in recent years.  โ€œWhile Dallas is home to several artisanal or Neapolitan-style pizza places, we wanted to offer an exceptional East Coast pizza in a laid-back environment with service second to none.โ€

Bowers is proud to offer an array of pizzas in a style more reminiscent of New York than Naples, choosing to prepare his pies in a classic Bakers Pride Deck Oven.  In addition to a selection of 14โ€ pizzas, the restaurant will offer classic Italian-American fare inspired by Kennyโ€™s Italian Kitchen.  Additionally, the full bar will offer a selection of hand-crafted cocktails and martinis poured from their signature frozen Grey Goose tap.

โ€œIโ€™ve been experimenting with pizza for several years,โ€ explains Bowers.  โ€œFirst, I worked with some of my favorite pizza makers across the country to develop the right dough recipe, because the crust is everything.  Then, I started with the basics, making a classic cheese pizza.  With so few components, there really is no place to hide mistakes, so making the cheese pizza perfect was really the indicator that we were ready.โ€

Kennyโ€™s East Coast Pizza is currently scheduled for a late summer 2016 opening.  The restaurant joins five other Kennyโ€™s restaurants, including Kennyโ€™s Wood Fired Grill and Kennyโ€™s Italian Kitchen in Addison, Kennyโ€™s Burger Joints in Plano and Frisco, and Kennyโ€™s Smoke House in Plano.




Stay hungry, Dallas.
