Starting today, however, that will change. At noon, the doors of this trendy little restaurant sandwiched into the shipping container next to Work & Class will open, offering lunchgoers the same array of pizzas, oysters and small plates that have caught the Ballpark/RiNo neighborhood's attention since Cart-Driver opened in July.

In addition, co-owner Kelly Whitaker (of Boulder's Basta) has added Sicilian-style slices cooked in a pan, Italian flatbread called piadina with mortadella, and daily specials.
Turns out that lunch was always in the cards, but it took a few months to get going because "figuring out 600 square feet has been a challenge," says Whitaker.
Lunch isn't the only change in the works. "We're still doing a lot of things," he adds. In the months to come, look for new artwork out front and a covered, heated back patio, which is expected to add another fifteen seats -- and very welcome seats at that.
