Ammazza – Atlanta, GA

Several weeks back, when we went to Varasano’s Pizzeria, we were talking with the waitress about the state of pizza in Atlanta.  She told the story of one of her friends who is a server at Ammazza:  It seem that they were both going to a party and each of them was to bring a […]

Gordo’s New York Style Pizza – Duluth, GA

In today’s episode of dining alone, I kept driving until I saw some place “new” (to me).  There was a sign for a hot wing place that drew me into the shopping center attached to the Texaco, at the corner of Rogers Bridge and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, but found thta they didn’t open until 3:00.  […]

La Tagliatella – Atlanta, GA

For Mother’s Day, we headed over to Emory Village with our youngest and her boyfriend, for brunch at La Tagliatella.  We had originally considered a visit to La Tagliatella when we were downtown several months ago, at their midtown location.  I discovered, when I was writing this blog post, that the midtown location closed at […]

Varasano’s Pizzeria – Atlanta, GA

When we were looking for a place to have lunch on Good Friday, Jo told me to find a place that I was interested in trying.  Varasano’s Pizzeria has been on my list since April of 2010, when they were listed in the pizza section of the Cheap Eats issue of Atlanta Magazine, but we […]

Mellow Mushroom – Hiram, GA

It was Tuesday before I knew we were two days into Pizza Week.  Granted, I never knew such a thing existed, but, dang it, I was missing an excuse to eat pizza!  When we were trying to decide on a place to meet our small group for dinner on Wednesday night, it was determined that […]

The Cafe at Double Zero – Sandy Springs, GA

“Today is the day that I will finally eat at Rumi’s Kitchen”, I decided as I left the office, two hours before a meeting in Kennesaw, intending to eat on the top end.  I pulled up the address for Rumi’s on the list in my phone (“How old is this list? Why would that matter?”), […]

Sal’s Pizzeria – Dallas, GA

Heading to Wednesday night journey group and looking for something different for dinner (as we weren’t rushing for a change), we got into Dallas and hadn’t yet picked a place. Choices, rapidly, became limited, so we stopped at Sal’s Pizzeria in downtown D. After deciding against pizza and on pasta, we placed our order. They […]

timone’s local pizza joint – Atlanta, GA – CLOSED

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. Following Ron Eyster (who also owns Rosebud and the Family Dog), on Twitter *, I had been eagerly anticipating the opening of his new pizza restaurant, timone’s local pizaa joint, for months.  This evening as I was heading in town and driving through Morningside, I thought it would be a great […]

Marco’s Pizza – Duluth, GA

A quick review: I’ve seen several Marco’s Pizzas opening around town recently and wondered about them. Today, I found out that they’re a chain that’s from Ohio that is aggressively franchising.  With over 340 stores in 29 states (plus two the Bahamas and Panama) they’ve grown immensely, since the first location opened in Toledo in […]

Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria – St. Simons Island, GA

The last time that I was in Brunswick, someone asked me if I had been to Sal’s Neighborhood Pizza on St Simons Island yet. Then MLE reported on it, during their last southeast Georgia swing.  As we were in coastal Georgia, with a down-time day at the beach, I knew what we were going to […]
