Federal Hill Pizza Providence Grand Opening
March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
William Manzo, Jr. and his wife Christine, owners of Federal Hill Pizza in Warren, are thrilled to formally announce the opening of their new location in the iconic Castle Theater, located at 1039 Chalkstone Avenue in Providence. Built as a one-screen theater in 1925, Billy & Christine have transformed the theater into a full-service restaurant, bar & cafe, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks.
Opening at 6 a.m. daily, the cafe serves breakfast sandwiches, calzones, coffee and other beverages. Lunch starts at 11:30 a.m., followed by dinner service until 10 p.m. Sunday – Thursday and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. The menu boasts all of the incredible dishes you can find at Federal Hill Pizza in Warren, including brick oven pizza, pasta, salad, appetizers, burgers, sandwiches and gluten-free pizza. The bar has a warm, industrial feel. Made from polished blue steel with a charred wood backdrop, selections include 24 craft beers on tap, housemade libations and infused spirits.
Chef Billy is a Mt. Pleasant neighborhood guy. He grew up down the street from the Castle Theater and enjoyed movies there as a child. As a child he absorbed the sights, sounds and most importantly, the smells of traditional Italian and Armenian cooking in his family’s kitchen. Billy and Christine are the Co-Founders of the Chefs Feeding Kids 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which aims to raise funds for groups that feed kids, and teach them healthy eating habits. Children are and will remain a focal point of non-profit philanthropic contributions Federal Hill Pizza makes going forward.
Billy Manzo is only the second American-born Master Pizzaiolo certified by Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli, and a graduate of the AVPN Pizzaiolo training course. He has the honor of being a member of the World Pizza Champions™ team with whom he travels extensively competing in various pizza competitions all over the world. An expert in his field, Chef Billy is a highly sought after consultant and educator in the art of Neapolitan pizza making, and the business of pizza. Federal Hill Pizza is sponsored by 5 Stagioni, Bacio Cheese and Caputo Cheese.
The Grand Opening Celebration will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd, starting at 7:30 p.m. All are welcome to enjoy food, beverages, music and merriment.
