Detroit-style pizza inventor Buddy's Pizza is looking into Dan Gilbert's Madison Building in downtown Detroit.

The Free Press reports that the parties are in talks for Buddy's to take over the space formerly occupied by Angelina Italian Bistro at 1565 Broadway St. by Grand Circus Park. That restaurant closed in late 2017 following a dispute with Gilbert over rent.


Though Buddy's didn't confirm that it's considering the location, the company's chief operating officer Wes Pikula told the Free Press, "Buddy's Pizza is exploring the possibility of opening a downtown Detroit location. Nothing excites us more than bringing the original Detroit-style pizza to the heart of the city."

If Buddy's succeeds in opening its new location, it would join a number of new pizzerias that opened in and around downtown over the last year. That includes La Lanterna, Brass Rail Pizza Bar, Eat-N-Out, Giordano's, POP + OffWorld, and PizzaPlex in Southwest Detroit.
