Colossal opens early—weekdays at 6 a.m. and weekends at 7 a.m.—and closes by 3 p.m., but die-hards know that with a little planning you can get dinner from Colossal's kitchen too. The restaurant offers heat-and-eat trays of tamale pie, lasagna, or its best-selling chicken potpie. Tinucci says dinner will be to-go only until they secure a license to serve wine and beer, a process they are entering into with some trepidation. "I'm sure you know what happened with Cupcake on Grand Avenue," he says, referring to the bakery getting pushback from the Summit Hill Neighborhood Association over parking. "We may run into a similar issue with parking here, but in my conversations with the district council, land-use committee, and most importantly, the people that live here, I don't think we'll have problems getting clearance." If all goes well, you could be enjoying a glass of chardonnay with a Colossal potpie by summer.
