Paradise Restaurant in Paradise, California, is looking to raise $10 million to open a pizza bar in the city’s downtown.
The bar is a joint venture between Paradise Pizza and the restaurant’s founder, Pete T. Johnson, and will feature pizza parmesan, a specialty pizza.
The concept is similar to what a pizza parlor does in New York, but in a restaurant setting.
“The idea of pizza parm is the most basic pizza you can make, but it’s really fun and exciting to make it at Paradise,” Johnson said.
Paradise is also looking for people who can come to the restaurant and try out the pizzas, which will be served with the restaurant sauce.
Paradise’s pizza bar will be located in Paradise Plaza, the largest restaurant in the town, at the intersection of Sunset and Sunset Boulevard.
The restaurant will also feature a wine bar and wine-making equipment.
Paradise also is looking for an architect to design the restaurant.
The owner is looking at having it open in September, Johnson said, but he said he’s looking to make the restaurant a destination.
“I love New York and I want to bring it back,” Johnson told the ABC News affiliate.
Paradise Restaurant has been around since 2008 and has had several owners in New Jersey, according to the website Paradise Pizza.
The pizzeria has also opened in New Orleans and in Los Angeles.
Paradise Pizza’s website says the restaurant will serve up “an array of pizza, salads, sandwiches, desserts and drinks” and will be “dedicated to a healthy, friendly, creative, and fun environment for everyone.”
