Pizza Man names Korte general manager

Pizza Man has appointed Heather Korte general manager.


Korte’s restaurant experience includes working for Blu at the Pfister Hotel, Trocadero, and Osteria del Mondo.

In 2009, Korte completed Level II certification as a sommelier, or wine expert. She has worked as a sommelier at both American Club in Kohler, Wis., and Mason Street Grill in Milwaukee. At Mason Street Grill, Korte also served as assistant manager and created a wine program that won the restaurant its first Wine Spectator Award for Excellence.

Pizza Man plans to have between 150 and 200 wines available for purchase by the glass.     

“I am excited to invoke memories of the original and beloved location while brining Pizza Man into a new decade,” Korte said. “I just want to make sure that the other fans of the restaurant feel that this is as genuine and unique as the first Pizza Man!”

The original Pizza Man was destroyed by a fire in early 2010. The new location will open in June on the corner of Downer and Belleview Streets.
