More news on Slice & Pint, replacing Everybody's Pizza and Steady Hand Pour House in Emory Village: The restaurant will be a "neighborhood pizza pub" that serves pies made with locally sourced ingredients, including mozzarella made in-house, and craft beer brewed on the premises. They plan to open the restaurant in a few months, but the brewery will take a bit longer to build out. Named in the vein of traditional English pubs, the S&P will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner and will welcome guests of all ages.
Owner Crawford Moran is looking forward to being a part of the neighborhood and says that he was approached by the landlord to take over the space and isn't "pushing or throwing anyone out." About Everybody's, he adds:
Everybody's is an Atlanta institution. It's a great place. They've been around for 41 years! And restaurant years are like dog years. That's a long time to be around in this business, and it speaks volumes to the work they do and to their loyal following. I'm a customer from the old days, and they even used to serve my beer back in my Dogwood Brewing days. I think those guys are just ready to retire. I was contacted several weeks ago to see if I would be interested in doing something in that space. It's a great building in a great part of town, so I'm very excited. I think we'll be a good fit for the neighborhood. Steady Hand is a great coffee shop too. I think the landlord is working with them to relocate their business into a better space.
Emory Village is also home to Rise n Dine, Bad Dog Taqueria, and the forthcoming Ink & Elm.
