Bid to retool Stoney Creek’s Attic pizzeria for pot sales riles neighbours

The Attic Pizza Parlour in Stoney Creek wants to add marijuana to its menu, but some neighbours and the area’s councillor say the plan deserves to go up in smoke.

Owner Ned Kuruc says his licence application to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) seeks to convert the landmark King Street East eatery’s dining room into a 1,000-square-foot pot shop to be known as Neku Cannabis.

He said he intends to keep the takeout and delivery side, which is separated by a cinder-block wall and has its own entrance, calling the move to ditch the dine-in portion “a tough choice” reflecting higher costs and diminishing returns.

“The restaurant business isn’t what it used to be,” said Kuruc, who revived the Attic in 2003 after it had been closed for years. It originally opened in 1973.
