Prickly Pear serves sort-of-Mexican pizza

What is it? It's pizza, very strange, very thick pizza made with pureed black beans, chicken, avocados and creme fraiche. I ordered it at the new Prickly Pear Taqueria (950 W. Peachtree St., 404-881-8887), located between Marlow's Tavern and Steele.

The restaurant, which is inexpensive, was absolutely packed when we visited Saturday night. It's the usual, mediocre, mainly Tex-Mex fare. How mediocre? Well, a staffer actually told me not to order the chicken mole because, she said, it is completely inauthentic.  Of course, none of this matters after your first margarita or two or three or four.

Look to learn more in "Grazing" this week.
