Last night had the occasion to visit this place, as I was in Atlanta for a conference. In a word, wow.
It's only been open a couple of months. Before the opening, the would-be proprietor--a transplanted New Yorker named Jeff who complained he couldn't get good pizza in Atlanta--hosted pizza parties in his home. Apparently those became so famous, people said, "You need to open a restaurant." Which he did.
What I liked most about the "pie": Fresh ingredients and the thin crust.
Those who introduced me to Varasano's were friends and former colleagues Jennifer Brett and Charlie Gay, aka, the Social Butterfly and CTG.
Jennifer said she somehow squired an invite to Jeff Varasano's house for one of the famous parties, then wrote about it. Then the Times wrote about it. So appreciative of the Butterfly, Jeff stopped by our table last night and said next time to ask for the "VIP oregano."
Next time you're in the ATL, you oughtta go.
