Harbor East is surely a dining destination with a number of upscale and casual spots within its expanding geographical boundaries. But there’s no pizza joint. Soon, there will be.
Bagby Pizza Co. is scheduled to open at the end of August in the old Bagby furniture building being redeveloped on Fleet Street. Blake Smith, who owns the new business with his dad, David Smith, describes the brick-oven pizza as gourmet, with one of the offerings to be a smoked-salmon-and-cream-cheese pie.
Blake, a Boys’ Latin alum who sampled such a pizza in Ireland, says it’s a great-tasting combo. The menu is still being finalized, he says. But customers can also expect to find pasta, sandwiches, and salads. A large (14 inch) cheese pizza will go for around $12-13. About opening a pizza shop, Blake says, "There’s a need for it, for sure."
