Pierre's Gourmet Pizza Co. on JFK had a following, but back and neck surgeries forced chef/owner Michael Ayers to close in September 2009. Now recovered, Ayers has decided to revive the Pierre's brand with a concept that he said is "adjusted to the economy." To that end, he's left rent behind in favor of a mobile kitchen in his converted RV, a space he said is bigger than his old restaurant kitchen.
In this new set-up, which he calls Pierre's Gourmet Pizza Company Express Kitchen, he's still serving essentially the same menu — a broad selection of pizza, salads, subs and calzones — but, again to fit the new economic climate, he said he's lowered many of his prices.
Though the kitchen is mobile, look for it, at least initially, to stay based in a parking lot at Third and Izard in Little Rock from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. Pierre's will deliver (not in the RV, sadly) downtown and in surrounding areas. Ayers suggests calling ahead for pizza orders.
