The chefs at Bella Luna Pizzeria like to get creative in the kitchen, dreaming up unusual names for their pies—such as Mona Lisa and The Vatican—and tossing their thin New York–style crusts with unique toppings such as barbecue pork and andouille sausage. They even extend their culinary expertise toward vegan pizzas, topping them with dairy-free cheese and fresh vegetables. When they’re not perfecting their pies, the chefs keep busy slicing up meats for crunchy hero sandwiches and whipping up meatballs for spaghetti dinners. As the chefs bustle around the kitchen, customers await their meals in the bright dining room over pitchers of draft beers and bottles of sparkling champagne.

At The Butcher Shoppe, handcrafting sausage and sculpting fresh cuts of meat is a family legacy. Owner Kevin Green and his son Jordan will tell you that serving as a local expert on meat is not just a job; it's a way of life. When the father-son team welcomed Troy Moon of the Pensacola News Journal into their store, Jordan showed off his extensive beef knowledge, knife skills, and the tattoo on his arm, which depicts a snarling steak holding a butcher's knife in each hand. When asked how long he planned to work for his dad, the ambitious and dedicated youth replied, "Hopefully until he either gives up this one to me, or we open another one." Given their talent and close connection with their customers, that may not be a bad idea.
In addition to prime, certified Angus and choice beef, the duo showcases specialty items such as bison and alligator, providing a “how-to” cooking guide with each cut in order to ensure the best flavor. They also turn their patrons' wild game into sausage—adding hot Cajun spices, maple, or sage for an extra kick—and handpick marinades and barbecue sauces that are ideal for slathering on grilled meats or making slip ‘n’ slide journeys more flavorful.
