KANSAS CITY, MO (April 1, 2015) – Finally! After years of being asked when Kansas City’s SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza would open a Northland location, the answer is later this year. SPIN!®, honored with numerous awards for its food and concept, will open its first location north of the river in the Burlington Creek Shopping Center site formerly occupied by All Star Pizza & Pub.
“We want those who have been asking us to come up north to know that we heard you. It took us longer than we wanted but we have finally found the perfect location,” says Ed Brownell, a partner in SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza. “The Northland is booming with exciting enterprise and communities and we’re excited be part of it.”
Founded in Overland Park in 2005, SPIN! was one of the nation’s first Neapolitan-style pizza restaurants. The Northland location will be the locally owned and operated pizzeria’s tenth area location. The 3,862 square-foot location on N.W. 64th Street, just west of I-29, will feature indoor seating for 120, including 15 seats at the bar, and a patio that seats 40.
With recipes developed in collaboration with local James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Smith, who also was named national 2014 Chef Innovator of the Year, SPIN! is known for its award-winning pizza, exceptional artisan food made from fresh ingredients without the gourmet price, a rotating roster of affordable premium wines, barrel wines and craft beers, and its distinct, inviting atmosphere that appeals to all ages.
Ranked number one by Zagat among Kansas City area pizza restaurants, SPIN! has been awarded “best pizza” by numerous Kansas City area publications, where it also was honored for the city’s best gluten-free menu. SPIN!’s been named one of the “Rest of the 101 Best Restaurants” in the nation by top foodie website TheDailyMeal.com, itsMargherita Pizza was crowned one of the nation’s best dishes of the year by a trade magazine, and its architecture won Best of Show at the Mid America Design Awards.
SPIN! serves hand-spun, stone-fired pizzas, a tremendous selection of fresh salads topped with made-from-scratch dressings, homemade soups, signature Panini and Italian deli sandwiches, appetizers, small plates, and all-natural gelato ice creams.
Northland patrons will enjoy a diverse selection of traditional thin-and-bubbly crust, rustic whole wheat, and gluten-free pizzas. The pizza dough is made fresh every day using several types of flour and its gluten free crust is renowned for its flavor and texture. SPIN! offers both traditional Pizza Rossa (red pizzas with crushed tomato sauce) and Pizza Bianca (white pizzas with roasted garlic olive oil glaze), and many hand-grated cheeses. Dairy-free cheese also is available.
SPIN! takes the unique step of roasting its pizza toppings in stone hearth ovens every day to bring out the most flavorful notes of each meat, vegetable, and topping including even nuts and capers. SPIN!’s pizza toppings, ingredients, homemade soups, and made-from-scratch salad dressings are prepared daily from fresh produce and meats.
Known for a rotating roster of affordable premium wines, SPIN! also makes homemade white, red and blood orange sangrias and offers a selection of craft beers.
In addition to its wines and artisan menu, SPIN! is recognized for its convenient service model. Guests place their orders at a counter in the restaurant’s ordering lobby and then relax at their tables where servers deliver their food and beverages. This lets guests control their time whether they’re in a hurry or in the mood to leisurely hang out.
The Northland SPIN! will be located at 6100 N.W. 63rdTerrace in Kansas City, Mo. SPIN! also has locations in midtown Kansas City and Lee’s Summit, Mo. and in Overland Park, Olathe, Prairie Village and Lenexa, Ks.
