WESLEY CHAPEL — On July 15, Noble Crust celebrated the opening of its second location at The Shops at Wiregrass with a special event benefiting the Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel Foundation.

"We're excited to bring our independent eatery concept to a growing neighborhood in Tampa," said TJ Thielbar, co-founder. "This is a flourishing area, and we're looking forward to growing our success in this community."

Founded in 2014, Noble Crust first opened in St. Petersburg, turning traditional Italian dining into a whole new experience by offering seasonal Italian with Southern Soul. The menu features a variety of pizza, seafood, pasta dishes, and salads.

Starters include ricotta gnocchi and crispy grouper sliders. Southern fried chicken is one of the featured items, and pasta dishes include rigatoni and short rib ragu and bucatini and meatballs.

A special brunch menu is offered from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The 166-seat restaurant has social tables, an open kitchen and a bar area. Outside, there is a spacious patio with seating. The drink menu features curated cocktails, wine on tap, and local craft beer from Coppertail, Brew Bus, and Crooked Thumb Brewery.

Noble Crust is slated to open a third location in Carrollwood this fall.
