The Leinkauf Historic District has some new tenants in a familiar location. The Spiffy Fox Pizza and Pub has replaced what was once La Pizzeria at 1455 Monroe St., and is serving up pies with an Irish/Gaelic take on traditional pizza ingredients. They were only offering takeout while renovations to the pub were underway, but the good news is the pub is open for dine-in. The bad news is, they don’t have a liquor license yet.
Currently, guests are allowed to BYOB while trying out Mobile’s newest pizza in the famed location. That’s not such a bad thing, is it? I’m certain the pub will be a full-service bar in no time, but until then the Spiffy spokesperson informed me they have no idea when it could happen. In the meantime, give me a Spicy Pie and a Margherita pizza. I wonder if I can bring a pony keg in there and make some friends…?
