Biarritz Kosher Pizza Opening in Former Basil Crown Heights Location

Clara Perez, former manager of the new-closed Basil Pizza in Crown Heights, announced the opening of Biarritz Kosher Pizza and Wine Bar. Former Basil chef Michael Arrington will join Biarritz as the executive chef.

Basil was one of Crown Height’s more popular restaurants, often with lines out the door with people waiting to get seated. However, it eventually closed in June of 2023.

The new restaurant will offer a variety of pizzas, fresh fish and homemade pasta with a similar warm, upscale and fine dining experience customers experienced with Basil. Biarritz, named after the elegant seaside town on France’s southwestern Basque coast, will open in August.

It will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Menu and launch date will be released closer to opening.
