Scallop giardiniera pasta and clam-endive-bacon pizza are two of the specialties planned for DiModa Pizza & Hotspot, the restaurant replacing Trocadero (1758 N. Water St.). Parent company Wild Planet Hospitality Group closed Trocadero (which had operated for 16 years) back in January.
Their new restaurant will have a wood-burning oven and serve a “creative” selection of pizzas and “modern” Italian dishes, according to a press release. Other items include spicy brick chicken, Sardinian-style clams and fregola pasta, “devil’s pie” (pizza with nduja spreadable salami, roasted peppers and giardiniera) and spicy charred pepperoni pizza.
DiModa is slated to open in late April.
