Tonight, Varasano’s Pizzeria, one of the most anticipated Atlanta restaurants, finally opened its doors. Despite a tremendous amount of recent attention directed at the Peachtree Hills pizzeria, the crowd was very manageable. Similar to what happened with FLIP, a little bit of rain clearly kept some people away. Thank goodness! I expect it to get busy – very very busy.
I was lucky enough to have Broderick join me and my step-dad. He took some awesome photos but was kind enough to keep me distinctly off camera! Nobody wants to see my ugly mug. So make with the clicking and go check out his pictures over on Savory Exposure.
I’ll definitely get into the details at some point; but, I’d like to give them a little time to hone their craft. The New Haven pizza came out really good as did the salumi that B gave me a taste of. Though still wildly better than anything else I’ve had in this city – Jeff has put out better pies! That, however, is nothing to think twice about. His technique with the new oven has already gotten better since I snacked there a month ago. No need for him to perfect his technique, this pizza is more than good enough to satisfy even the toughest of critics.
Will I write more? You betcha … but for now, the sneak peek seems to be holding up just fine as a first impression!
