A new massive, wine bar and pizzeria arrives in Ferndale on Wednesday. Pop's For Italian, the second restaurant taking up residence in the former Buffalo Wild Wings and Twisted Shamrock spaces on Nine Mile, opens to the public tonight at 4 p.m.

Developed by the Kramer Restaurant Group (One-Eyed Betty's, Daily Dinette), Pop's is a passion project for partner Brian Kramer whose grandparents were Italian immigrants. The high-ceiling restaurant boasts a wood-burning Italian oven required for serving certified Neopolitan pizza. Customers in the restaurant and pedestrians using the adjoining walkway can watch the pizzas being made in the open kitchen.

Pop's horseshoe bar is equipped with a 32-bottle wine preservation system and six kegged wines from Italy, allowing the patrons to order every single vintage by the glass. General manager Beth Hussey says the partners hope Pop's will fill a niche for wine lovers in the same way that the ever-popular One-Eyed Betty's has for beer. In addition to pizza, Pop's offers homemade pastas, chicken parmesan, and pork chops. Check out the full menu below.
