A bit less 'Xtreme'? Out with the old, in with the new on Thayer Street

Tucked under stairs that lead up to another restaurant, one of Thayer Street's pizza parlors has a new owner, and name.

Kamal Nouhaili, co-owner of Thayer Street Pizza and Wings, said he has been trying to re-brand the restaurant's image since he bought Xtreme Pizza and Wings earlier this month.

"They used to have all kinds of funky pizzas and stuff," said Nouhaili, who owns another pizza parlor in Cumberland. "We're trying to make it more like your hometown pizzeria."

Nouhaili said he bought the restaurant for "a very good price" because the previous restaurant had a bad reputation in terms of both food quality and service. He said he would combat that reputation by improving the food and the attitude of the employees.

While guests may not notice much of a difference in the restaurant's facilities, the new owners have changed the menu to shift the focus away from wings and pizza.

Other nearby pizza parlors feature pizza by the slice, Nouhaili said, whereas his menu also includes appetizers, pasta, sandwiches, wraps and calzones.

"We're not trying to compete with Antonio's, Via Via, Nice Slice — we've got very different food," he said.

He said the restaurant will give a 15 percent discount to members of the Brown community.
