The Pizzeria Fortunato ovens cook up a menu of pizzas and Italian favorites made with fresh ingredients. The pan-fried provolone tranquilizes fried fromage fanatics with a sizzling skillet of pasteurized joy ($9.50). Larger parties can share an 18-inch Neopolitan-style cheese pizza and leave their distinctive mark on it with extra toppings of pepperoni, spinach, eggplant, and spray paint ($15.75). The restaurant's in-house pizza wizards have also concocted specialty flavor creations such as the Fortunato deluxe, topped with pepperoni, sweet italian sausage, roasted peppers, and vidalia onions (18"; $18); and the eggplant parmigiana pizza, which includes hand-breaded eggplant and ricotta cheese (18"; $22.25). Diners who have rented out their stomachs as storage space to neighbors can keep it light with a special 10-inch pizzette, such as the pesto chicken, topped with grilled chicken and homemade pesto ($12.75), or any full-size pizza shrunk down into solo sizes. The pizzas share menu real estate with foot-long grinders, strombolis, calzones, and pasta dishes.
Curry Curry Thai wraps snouts in an aromatic spread of handpicked spices and pleases bellies with market-fresh vegetables and proteins served in traditional Thai style. Both the Smyrna and Marietta menus kick-start meals with appetizers including satay chicken, skewers of grilled, marinated chicken buttressed by peanut sauce and cucumber salad ($5.95 for five), and fresh-basil rolls, rice paper wrappers filled with shrimp and veggies ($3.95 for two). Curries, noodles, and fried rice dishes make filling entree options for vacant stomachs or empty fanny packs. Scoop up a bundle of pineapple fried rice—a vibrant potpourri of pineapple, onion, beans, carrots, black pepper, and curry powder ($7.95 for lunch, $9.95 for dinner)—or lap up a bowl of red curry—a mixture of coconut milk, bamboo shoots, and red and green bell peppers ($6.95 for lunch, $8.95 for dinner)—in an effort to prove dominance over utensils.
Pizza Bar is home to sumptuous, specialty slices and creative cocktails served in a modern, eclectic atmosphere. Satisfy cravings for sliced comestibles with Pizza Bar's expansive menu of pizzas available by the slice ($2.25–$4.75) or by the pie ($12.50–$22). Vegetarians can sink their meat-free munchers into the herbivore pizza—a mélange of tomato sauce, white onion, green pepper, mushrooms, olives, and garlic—while omnivores flaunt their Tex-Mex side with the southwestern pie, loaded with sauce, grilled chicken, roma tomatoes, jalapeños, and onion. The fusion lounge also serves a variety of specialty cocktails for parched palates, including the platinum margaritas ($11) and electric blue lemonades ($9) made with Ketel One, blue curacao, lemonade, pineapple, and Smurf tears.
Mr. D's sauce-wielding chefs seal juicy flavor into slow roasted meats with delicious hickory smoke and tangy barbecue flavors to create a massive smokehouse menu. Drizzled barbecue clings like an entourage of flavor to the smoldering meat of the St. Louis style ribs ($12.99 half slab), seared in the heat of hickory flames and public adoration. The pulled beef brisket ($8.79 half pound) overtakes plates with mountainous piles and saucy altitudes, scaled by the brave, buttery crunch of the fried corn on the cob ($3.95). In an act of nutritious comeuppance, sweet teeth sink into the sugary candied yams ($3.95), finally fooled into eating a vegetable. Tikes and toddlers can order fist-sized portions off the children's menu, while entire clans share the spoils found in family meals.
Visitors at any of The Olive Tree Restaurant’s three locations bask in the tantalizing aroma of garlic drifting from the kitchen, which bustles with a lineup of expert chefs. Seated at a cozy table, guests dig into an array of traditional Greek and Italian dishes, taking alternating bites of veal parmesan and grecian scallops. Hosting outdoor dining, the Villa Rica restaurant shelters patrons beneath an awning-protected patio, and the Hiram location houses them in a quaint brick terrace flanked by lattices and the tendrils of hanging plants, which often sneak bites of baked pasta over diners' shoulders. The Hiram location further entertains the senses with live music during dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. At all three locations, patrons can wash down savory bites with wine, draft beer, and specialty cocktails from the full bar, and can request takeout or catering for special events and weddings.
