I've been getting out but being careful! Please keep supporting local restaurants and be careful--I feel like we are *close* to being back to normal!
For older standbys, I was inspired by CNN's Stanley Tucci's Searching for Italy to get some *real* Neapolitan pizza. Turns out the pizzaiolo in the Naples episode taught Atlanta's own Luca Varuni to make pies! Check out Varuni Napoli for the REAL DEAL! And one of my favorite standby's, Marlow's Tavern, is offering a limited edition Cajun menu! Get in the Mardi Gras spirit today!
