We were thrilled to learn in March that Atomic Pie was opening its doors and filling our neighborhood with the enticing smell of crispy, delicious pies. We were equally as thrilled to hear from co-owner Chris Schwab last week that he and partners Tim Cole and Craig Allen intended to expand into the space next door (to the left if you’re facing AP).

I just spoke with Tim Cole who said that the city will not give AP a CO/permit for the parking for the space on the left, citing that there are not enough spots. (Now, if you have driven around that parking lot as often as I have in the past decade or so, you will note that one thing it is not lacking is parking, but I digress…)

Cole says the new plan is to forget about the space on the left and take the space on the right, turning it into an L-shaped dining area to seat 40-50 people. Blueprints are being drawn, and the men of Atomic Pie are hoping to knock down the wall between the current space and the new one in June for a completed dining area in early July. Stay tuned …
