Pizza stall and slice joint Holmes Slice opens Tuesday, September 1, inside the food hall at the Halcyon development in south Forsyth County. The stall, owned by chef Taylor Neary of Restaurant Holmes in Alpharetta, serves New York-, West Coast-, and Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizzas.
Located between Gu’s Dumplings and Land of a Thousand Hills coffee in the food hall, the menu at Holmes Slice currently features three hearty salads and five pizzas, like the “Proper Zah” with pomodoro sauce, basil, and mozzarella or the “Italian Job” topped with prosciutto, pesto, burrata, and oregano. Pizzas come by the slice or whole pie.
In addition to salads and pizzas, the stall also sells frozen drinks, including a pineapple strawberry hibiscus frozè and a frozen version of the Cuba Libre cocktail (rum and Coke,) along with draft beer.
For now, people place their to-go orders at the pizza stall inside the food hall. Online ordering for pick-up is in the works. It should be noted that masks are not required at Halcyon, but strongly encouraged. Complimentary masks and hand sanitizer are available throughout the property.
A third location of Atlanta-based Hobnob Neighborhood Tavern opens September 27 at the development. Hobnob-Halcyon includes patios on the first and second floors overlooking a green space. The second level (Hobnob High Up) is reserved for people 21 and up. Like the Brookhaven and Dunwoody restaurants, Hobnob-Halycon will open for limited dine-in service during lunch and dinner and offer takeout and delivery via Grubhub and UberEats.
Open daily, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
