ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Slice Parlor has delivered a dose of its New York pizza to the Northeast Heights.

The local pizzeria this week opened its newest location at 9904 Montgomery NE, a redevelopment project also set to include a Marble Brewery taproom.

Slice first opened its doors in 2011 in Nob Hill, serving New York-style pizza by the slice and by the pie. Its business model includes running food to customers at the nearby Tractor Brewing Co. taproom.

Adam Moffett, who owns Slice with Doug Crowder, said expanding to the Heights was the next, logical step for the company, and setting up shop next to Marble feels especially right.

“I think it’s a good pairing,” he said. “I feel like we’re pretty serious about our pizza. I truly feel we have the best New York-style pizza in town, and Marble is one of the best (breweries) in town. I feel like it’s a good, compatible fit.”

Slice’s Heights store can seat about 100, including the patio. It will carry the same menu as its original location but have a lengthier wine list to go with the 24 beers it will have on tap.

Slice and Marble will occupy what was once a post office recently redeveloped by Coe & Peterson. The company’s Tenee Swingle is currently marketing the building’s remaining 2,000-square-foot spot.

Work continues on the Marble taproom, which will also have a pilot brewery for specialty and experimental beers. President Ted Rice said it could open as early as next month.

Slice opens at 11 a.m. daily and serves until 11 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 p.m. Sundays.
