The pizzeria prides itself on being "where people and pizza come together," so take your Groupon to special events such as Poker Night, Trivia Night, and Live Music Fridays.Pizza Problems sold an unprecedented 300 copies in 1981, and was even briefly adapted into a Saturday morning animated series, although fans objected to Pepperoni’s portrayal as a softheaded comic foil. Activavision Studios recently announced plans for a 30th anniversary relaunch of the Pizza Problems franchise, a mature-rated gore fest featuring the sultry voice talents of David Hyde Pierce.
From the brick-paneled walls and booths lined with dark wooden accents to the seasonal selection of gourmet American cuisine, Blackstone embodies every aspect of the classic steak house. A selection of hearty cuts anchors the menu, whether as solitary 8-ounce cuts of filet mignon, or massive 22-ounce cowboy rib eyes adorned with béarnaise sauce, jumbo lump crabmeat, lobster-shaped earrings, and other edible accessories. Guests can also savor a taste of the seas with plates of Atlantic salmon or pan-fried trout. Blackstone's wine list collects more than 35 pours, including 19 by the glass.
Blue Moon Pizza's menu of clever, tempting entrees, including its crispy, thin-crust pizza and creative salads, has propelled the restaurant to the top of the pizza food pyramid. Boggle your seas with a Mediterribbean jerk-chicken pizza ($10.79 for personal), topped with caramelized onions and cayenne-candied bacon, or try to tame the spicy flavors of the Luna ($19.49 for medium), with chorizo sausage, black olives, and jalapenos. Other signature items include Grandma's Pizza ($24.99), a 16" Sicilian-style pie topped with cheese, olive oil, plum tomatoes, sliced garlic, and fresh basil, and the cobb salad ($10.49) served on pizza dough with chicken, avocado, cayenne-candied bacon, crumbled blue cheese, onions, black olives, and roma tomatoes. If the creative entrees leave any gastric gaps, a warm chocolate-chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream ($4.99) should help achieve maximum satiation, or gargle your dessert with a cheesecake martini, concocted with Cruzan vanilla rum, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice (specialty martinis are $6 on Thursdays). Blue Moon also has a gluten-free menu. Lunchtime drop-ins can take advantage of Blue Moon's lunch special: two slices of cheese pizza and soda for $4.99.
Village Taqueria & Tequila Bar, formerly known as Lime Taqueria, balances a menu of tacos, burritos, and Mexican entrees with tangy sips from the large tequila and cocktail list and rakes in praise from publications such as the Marietta Daily Journal. Chef Oscar Mendivil runs the kitchen, where he perfects the culinary art of tacos with perfectly braised barbacoa, fire-roasted poblano chilies, and grilled shrimp. The burrito de langosta—packed with sautéed lobster and manchego grits—makes fancy fare portable without the mess of wrapping crème brûlée in a sheet of gold leaf. A dozen margaritas and Latin cocktails grace the drink menu, sharing space with nearly 100 types of tequila.
L’Thai Organic Cuisine & Wine Bar's menu lists organic Thai dishes including curries made with vegetarian-friendly sauces and noodles and fried rice prepared on special high-heat jet stoves that can be found on the streets of Bangkok. Appetizers, such as the vegetarian-style spring rolls ($4.95), and soups, such as the coconut-based tom kha ($4.95), lull appetites into a false sense of security before entrees, such as the garlic pepper beef ($12.95) or tippling drunken noodle tofu ($12.95), sneak in to deliver the culinary coup de grâce. Diners can supplement their smorgasbord with L'Thai Organic Cuisine & Wine Bar’s extensive beer and wine list, which overflows with fine fruit bloods such as Night Harvest chardonnay ($7/glass, $23/bottle) and Silver Ridge cabernet sauvignon ($7/glass, $24/bottle).
Fifth Group Restaurants began in 1993 with a hunger-driven dream and the opening of South City Kitchen in Midtown; in the intervening 17 years, the restaurant management company has grown to include a caravan of five grumble-silencing victual villas in a variety of cuisine styles. The restaurant group is also actively involved in a number of charitable and green programs, including a no-trash initiative where at least 95% of waste is either composted or recycled (Ecco is dumpster free and recycles or composts everything).
