Jockamo Pizza opens in Irvington

JockamoIrvington has another restaurant: Jockamo Upper Crust Pizza.

It's inevitable that any new gourmet pizza establishment in Indianapolis will be compared to Bazbeaux, and especially in this case since Jockamo Big Cheese Mick McGrath was the manager of the Broad Ripple Bazbeaux for about a decade and a half.

But Jockamo's menu is not much like Bazbeaux’s, and it's apparent that Mick put a lot of effort into differentiating his restaurant by developing his own signature pies. Early reviews from Irvington-based bloggers are raving about the place, and I'm determined to make the trip there soon — a shrimp and crayfish Po' Boy pizza sounds awfully good!
