While Twin Cities restaurateur Ryan Burnet’s latest project, the North Loop location of Crisp & Green has gotten underway, another of his ventures is settling in, in Minnetonka.

Station Pizzeria, a New York-style eatery, has made its home in a former gas station off of Minnetonka Blvd., but that former life has been transformed into a wood-laden space filled with plants, painted brick and even a chandelier (in true Burnet form).

Burnet also owns Bar La Grassa, Burch Steak, Barrio and Eastside.

The menu boasts 10 thin-crust pies ranging from pepperoni, sausage and mushroom to the Thai sausage pizza with chilies and a hint of ginger. Gluten-free crust is available as an option (above photo is the Thai pizza on a gluten-free crust). Station also offers up four salads – a romaine with miso vinaigrette and carrot ribbons and bibb with bacon, grape tomatoes and buttermilk dressing, among them – as well as a handful of sides such as the mac n’ cheese gratin with prosciutto, meatballs and fresh ricotta with toast points.

Prices range from $8 to $14 for apps and salads and from $10 to $17.50 for pizzas. Patrons can also build their own pies, choosing from a host of ingredients. A lunch menu includes sandwiches and calzones as well, and beer and wine are also available.
