Foodie News x Restaurant Reviews x Hip-Hop Attitude

In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

Castleberry Gets a New "SPIN" on Pizza

It's pretty well known that some of you Peters St/Castleberry neighborhood regulars are still feeling some kinda way about the closing of Slice aka Black Hollywood's favorite pizza joint.  And, even with it being reborn on Huff Rd as Westside Pie, that void is somehow still there.  But, instead of telling you guys to get over it already, I’m delighted to share the news about the opening of Spin.

According to our friends over at Thrillist, the space that once housed Slice has been taken over by its' former neighbors at 255 and transformed into what they're calling a "neoclassical pizzeria".  Basically, Spin is going to be a more sophisticated, upscale version of its' predecessor complete with a mural of our city’s skyline and an atmosphere filled with warm shades of brown.  From the looks of the pic being released, it screams grown and sexy.

These guys have thought of every topping anybody could ever want on a pizza.  Options like chicken sausage, goat cheese, and turkey bacon are being offered along with just about any veggie you can think of.  There will also be specialty pies like BBQ jerk chicken.  And, if for some reason you stroll into this pizza haven and DON'T want pizza (smh), they also have sub sandwiches like chicken pesto or meatball subs.  Everyone's a winner!

And let's not leave out the fact that one of our newest comrades, the beer guru himself - Ale Sharpton - was brought in to personally select the beer options available at Spin.  So, you know they’re gonna have the best of the best.  We can't wait to try it out!!!

Contact 255 Tapas Lounge for more info on the opening of Spin.  From what we hear, it looks like it may be next Wednesday or Thursday (March 28 or 29).  Whatever day it is, we'll probably be there.  So, you'll hear about it on our tweets or see some pics on our Facebook

Until next time, Happy Eating!
