The creators behind Acreage Cider House and Eatery and Stem Ciders are moving forward with plans to open an official Ghost Box Pizza restaurant in December.
Entrepreneurs Eric Foster and Phil Kao founded Stem Ciders in 2013 and later opened the RiNo Taproom and the Acreage Cider House and Eatery in Lafayette.
A wood-fired oven was added at Acreage about a year ago, and it became a pop-up site for Ghost Box Pizza to test recipes. “It was really well accepted and received by the local community,” Sarah Ingraham, Director of Restaurant Operations for Stem Ciders told What Now Denver.
They stopped selling the Detroit-style pizza at Acreage this summer and began focusing on the brick-and-mortar restaurant in downtown Lafayette. “We’re super excited for this to finally be happening.”
The Detroit-style pizza menu at Ghost Box Pizza features a variety of deep dishes—the Mortadella & Melted Onion, Salami & Fennel, and Potato & Rosemary to name a few. The family-focused restaurant will also offer flat bread, sandwiches, salads, and desserts. It will have full bar with liquor, beer, wine, and of course, ciders.
Ghost Box Pizza will replace the former Miller’s Grille space, which is undergoing a complete redesign. The patio will provide eight to ten tables with seating and a small fire place. The restaurant will offer seating for about 130 guests. “We really look forward to seeing everyone come out and try our pizza,” Ingraham shared.
Once open, the restaurant will also offer online ordering and curbside pickup. The new Ghost Box Pizza will be located at 103 S. Public Rd., Lafayette, CO 80026.
