I was on my own for dinner Friday night, so I stopped at the new Pizzeria Vesuvius (327 Edgewood Ave. 404-343-4404) after the gym for a perfect post-cardio meal of fats and carbs.
Located in the short-lived Bureau's location, the new restaurant features build-your-own pizzas and nine house-designed ones named after the world's volcanoes. I chose this Fuji pie, featuring roasted pork, hoisin sauce, cabbage, caramelized onions, scallions and chili flakes.
It was quite yummy, with a relatively thin crust, the vaunted char of a wood-fire oven and unusual ingredients. I ate at the bar, where co-owner Chris Lopez was working.
If you're a purist looking for the perfect margherita, you won't go for this, but if you like a pub atmosphere with imaginative pizza, you'll like Vesuvius.
