Project Pie has been resurrected in Hillcrest, they served their first customers on Tuesday. The "build your own" artisan pizzeria is back at its Fourth and University Avenue location. They also have stores in both Chula Vista and Carlsbad.
In 2016 Project Pie was bought by competitive brand Pieology and the location operated under that name for a while before closing.
Unlike its previous incarnation, the new Project Pie offers an extended salad selection and they have added empanadas to the menu.
Guests appear to love both the food and the fast-casual concept of the restaurant averaging a 4.5 ranking on Yelp.
"Seems for whatever reason that this DID close down, however it clearly doesn't have to do with the stellar reviews," commented Yelp user Clark H. "It's gotta be tough around here [Hillcrest] as people can be very picky and food conscious."
Project Pie is located at 3888 Fourth Ave, San Diego, 92103.
