We can add not only another pizza joint to Atlanta’s roster, but another new restaurant in West Midtown.
Westside Pie – not to be confused with nearby Westside Pizzeria – celebrated their grand opening this this past Sunday off of Huff road on the Westside. Owner Karen Smiley, a Savannah native, recently moved to Atlanta in the hopes of opening her own restaurant.
Though I have not yet been by to check it out myself, the menu features thin-crust style pizza, sandwiches, salads, and Italian entrees. I’m interested to see how some of their topping combinations work, such as the Apricot pizza topped with apricot puree, smoked turkey, cream cheese, and mozzarella.
If you are in the neighborhood, Westside Pie runs some pretty decent lunch specials from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Mondays-Fridays, including $1 slices.
Have any of you eager West-siders been by to check them out yet? What did you think?
1133 Huff Road, Atlanta. 404-376-8410, www.westsidepie.com.
