Heist Pizza Parlour, the Aaron May artisan pizza joint which was located in the former Grandy's/Rockin' Baja Lobster/Big Fat Greek building at 7131 E Broadway Blvd, has closed after a little over than a year of service. They apparently served their last pies on Sunday and now the phone is disconnected and their Facebook page has been deleted.
Despite hearing some negative feedback on some of the food (although editor Dan Gibson gave the place a positive review in February), the staff at Heist sure did a great job and were always pleasant and fun. The concept was cool, and, hey, had some awesome names for dishes (ex. Everyday I'm Brusslin', Hard out Here for a Shrimp).
Whether you were a Heist fan or not, I think we all agree it is sad to see an independent and local(ish) restaurant that employed many Tucsonans go under.
Good luck to the Heist Family from top to bottom, and yes, it is 'Hard Out Here For a Shrimp'...
