Eat with Spider-Man, smell like patchouli


We visited Little Five Points the other night, dining at Savage Pizza (484 Moreland Ave., 404-523-0500). It's too bad you can't see the superheroes suspended from the ceiling in the above pic. (There are better pics and a coupon on their website.) A comic book motif presides throughout the restaurant, which has been a favorite with many pizza fans since its opening in 1990.

What's the gimmick, besides dining with Spider-Man? The terrific sauces, including a Cajun one and a garlicky

white one, along with more usual types. My favorite pizza here, the Thai chicken, was not available the night of our visit, so we had the barbecued chicken one. Warning, a medium will barely fill two people — that's true of two professional eaters, anyway.

After dinner we crossed the street to Sevananda (467 Moreland Ave., 404-681-2831), a natural foods co-op. Wayne was in search of his homemade, hippie-dippy patchouli soap. What's the deal with natural foods and scents? Take a look at the store's incense counter!


I like Sevananda's vegetarian cuisine. I stop by now and then for a takeout lunch from the hot bar. I also like the picturesque co-op members working there, like this exotically dressed and very pleasant woman. She does not look like your typical Kroger clerk.
