Michael's Pizzeria's third restaurant is located at the Long Beach Promenade, an up and coming six-block development in the heart of Downtown Long Beach comprised of retail, entertainment, restaurant, office, hotel and residential spaces. The 10-week design-build of this #1 Zagat rated, Napoli-style restaurant included:
- Two Italian-imported wood burning pizza ovens.
- An open bar concept designed for interaction with the pizzaiolo.
- Signature design elements such as ceramic tile flooring, open loft ceilings, custom booths and light fixtures, wood paneling, and Carrera marble countertops that lend to the clean and modern feel.
- Installation of a complex design-build exhaust system constructed through four floors of occupied condos above the pizzeria.
- A spacious patio with custom cantilever sunshades and a large marble fire pit dining table.
