Taverna Rossa, the Pizzeria Whose Menu Was Crafted by Brian Luscher, Opens Today

You knew all along that Grape owner Brian Luscher would go nuts if he just handed his kitchen over to his new executive chef Danyele McPherson and sat on his hands. Chefs work relentless hours, and you can't go from ridiculously busy to idle without insanity leaking in.

To keep busy he's been making and selling handcrafted hot dogs, which just may be the best hot dogs made in Dallas. And then he decided to open a restaurant that would feature the links. In the meantime, Luscher's been helping other people open restaurants, and today is the first day you can check out his handiwork.

Look for Taverna Rossa at the Lakeside Market in Plano, the same shopping complex that holds Sea Breeze, the seafood restaurant we featured in our best seafood restaurants a few weeks ago.

Plano's newest pizza place is owned by the {33} Restaurant Group, the folks behind the Cadillac Pizza Pub in Mckinney. They worked with Luscher to create the menu, and the chef did well to sneak some of his own Italian sausage on the list of toppings for their thin-crust, wood-fires pizzas. He wasn't selfish though -- brisket from Hamm's Meat Market in McKinney and Lemley's tomatoes join a list of toppings that skew local when they can. Everyone's gonna get a little love. And pizza.

Taverna Rossa, 4005 Preston Road, Suite 512, tavernarossa.com

Has anyone tried the amazing pizza at Zoli's on West Davis St. in OC? Great knots and g'ma pies, fresh not frozen. Mom and Pop operation, now open for lunch and dinner.

Ooh hope it's good. Shops at Legacy is such an effin cluster it's not worth the headache.

Pizza at Taverna Rossa is delicious, thin and crisp.  Another good pizza in Plano is Coal Vines on Legacy.
