Exciting new pizza restaurant featuring arcade machine to open in Broughty Ferry
A Broughty Ferry pizza restaurant, which will have an arcade machine, competitions and games nights, is almost ready to open.
Brothers Mike and Lee Patterson, along with business partner Marc Gibson, have spent the last year revamping the former Peking Garden on Gray Street and transforming it into Pizza Revolution.
Both Mike and Marc will be chefs at the restaurant, which will initially open six days a week.
As well as the restaurant element there will be an arcade machine, with competitions, games nights and potentially a comic book sale.
And the menu itself will be a departure from the traditional toppings served in other pizza parlours, with the owners promising a “modern twist on some classics”.
Marc said: “We have board games so you can sit and play while you are eating your pizza. We’ve got comic books to sit and read. It’s just a fun place to be.
“We’re making a Neapolitan-style dough from scratch, but the toppings are not going to be traditional Italian.”
Hungry pizza lovers will also be able to watch their food being prepared in the live kitchen.
The group is also thanking local artist Symon Mathieson, who goes by the name Syke, who painted the inside wall as well as the wood-fired oven.
Included in the vibrant decorations is a massive collection of Funko Pop figures – collectable figurines inspired by pop culture – the majority of which belongs to Marc.
Mike added the brothers also want to thank their dad Neil Patterson. He said: “He’s gone above and beyond, if it wasn’t for him this wouldn’t have happened.”
The team hopes to be open Tuesday-Sunday noon-10pm to begin with, before opening seven days. There will also be the opportunity for walk-in takeaway orders.
