Pizzeria Biga Opens in Southfield, Michigan

According to QSR Magazine, “Luciano Del Signore, chef and proprietor of Bacco Ristorante opened Pizzeria Biga to the public on Wednesday, June 30, in Southfield, Michigan.”

“The restaurant’s namesake comes from biga (bee-gah), a pre-fermented, live culture, non-commercial starter for the dough, which allows the pizza to be light, chewy, and baked for a shorter time than other doughs. The restaurant seats approximately 130 inside and 60 on the heated, outdoor patio. Designed by the Northville-based Martone Design Studio, Biga features a natural and modern design with the use of steel and brick. Art panels throughout are reminiscent of the work of abstract sculpture artist Louise Nevelson. The restaurant offers curbside carry-out and waiters ready with handheld computers. Customers can pay for their pizza and receive their order, which can also include bottled wine and beer at retail prices, without leaving their car.”
