I didn't know there was a Z Pizza in Lexington until someone mentioned here that it had closed. The one in the Vista though, I certainly knew about, though I had never been to it.
Given that commenter Larry noticed the place closed on 3 January 2012, I'm guessing it probably closed on 31 December since that's a nice end-of-the-month/end-of-the-year date.
Looking inside and seeing the fairly limited and uncomfortable looking seating, I guess that it must have been focused more on takeout and by-the-slice than places I typically go to, so probably I would not have been in the target demographic even if I had made it over there.
I also not that the owner-sign
is very succinct, leaving it to next door Mojitos to post something a bit more verbose (if somewhat silver-lining seeking--Note the key-word on the sandwich board..)
Why did Z close? Well, of course there's this:
but that's been a factor from the get-go, and as I mentioned its really not the same demographic.
