Legendary Pizza, Dining Bar Facing Peachtree!
Everyone who has ever attended an event at the Fox Theater, has dined at nearby Baronda, with their wonderful individual pies. Now comes the spin-off in South Buckhead/Brookwood, in my hood. Great.
What Wolfgang Puck left behind, that great pizza oven, is now part of the Baroni pizza masters, and their rustic Italian menu. We sat at the bar. And what a bar. It faces straight out onto Peachtree. Are those drivers watching us nosh down these Italian morsels, with a wonderful glass of Italian vino?
We started with a seasonal Salami Antipasto Platter, with various cheeses, and different varieties of salami. That went fast with the crusty bread. The salad of Gorgonzola, walnuts, dry cranberries and apples, disappeared fastly also. The excellent basic Margherita pie, was right on, and I always judge pizza establismnets by the Margherita. I had to order the Linguini w/red Clam Sauce. Terrific! My companion had the Lasagana w/Bechamel Sauce. It was very dry, and had a strange taste. Baroni has a wonderful Italian wine selection.
Did I mention free parking at Brookwood Place. Welcome to the hood.
