John Dough's Pizza Bar Opens in SONO

With very little fanfare, John Dough’s Pizza Bar opened in SONO in the space formerly occupied by O’Neill’s Pub and restaurant at 77 North Main Street. The brainchild of Bill Ferguson and Chef Derek Furino, John Dough’s focuses on one thing and one thing only…New Haven style pizza, well maybe with a few salads on the other side of the menu, 

For those who have enjoyed Furino’s creations at Behind the Net in the Darien skating rink, the new location will offer the same pizza with an increased number of toppings. The new location also serves 12 beers on tap, offer numerous TVs to watch your favorite sporting events, plus a little after pizza coffee from Zumbach’s Coffee of New Canaan.

Stay tuned as CTbites plans a pizza outing for a more detailed review of Furino’s creations.

Is it as good as Pepe's?

October 12, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

Oh Boy...take a can of worms in you left hand and hold tightly, take a can opener in your right, apply pressure to the can and gently open.

In the discussion between Pepe's and Sally's I am a bigger fan of Sally's, other than the Pepe's clam pizza which is a product in its own class. Likewise in my visits to Pepe's Fairfield location, the non-clam 'zas were not up to the standards of either of those two New Haven locations.

John Dough's is new, the ovens are new, the process is new and the ingredients are still a work in progress. Is it "as good" as Pepe's or Sally's? Not yet. Will it eventually create 'zas like Pepe's and Sally's, I do not know, but that is one mighty high standard and I think that standard is their goal.

When we return in a few weeks for a thorough tasting we will report back.

Excellent comment Jeff "ifood" Schlesinger I agree with you 100% with the Pepe's /Sally's comparison. We can only hope with the passing of Flo the matriarch of Sally's that the kids know what they have and do not screw it up or worse franchise it out like Pepe's and Colony did

Went on a dead night with a group of friends, took OVER 1 hour to order 3 pizzas. Owner came out and apologized, the owner AGREED to pay for our pizzas if we over tipped the server. After we OVER tipped the server, the owner tracked us down on the sidewalk and persuaded us to pay for full bill + our generous tip.

Absolutely HORRIBLE service and ownership. I will be sure everyone reads this before they go there. Put this company out of business, they are clueless.
