Harry's Pizzeria Plots Phipps Plaza Premiere

Miami Florida based Harry's Pizzeria plans to open its first Atlanta area location at Phipps Plaza in Buckhead.  The restaurant, which according to permits filed with the City of Atlanta will be 2,531 square feet, will occupy suite 1096B. 

According to the Phipps Plaza site plan, suite 1096B is the space previously occupied by Yebo Restaurant & Bar. Before Yebo, Latitude Food & Drink occupied the space and before that, it was The Grape, a wine bar.  The space is quite small, but provides great visibility from Peachtree Road and also the possibility of offering outdoor dining, which Harry's plans to do.  

Harry's, which calls themselves a "Neighborhood American Pizzeria," features Neapolitan style pizza, served in six slice, eleven inch pies.   

 A special pie at Harry's: Radicchio with caramelized onion, dates & mozzarella

This past August 10th, they scored 57, then two weeks later on August 26th, they scored 93. A sign posted on the restaurant's front door reads: "We're closed for remodeling. Sorry for the inconvenience."
