The revolving door that is the space at 980 Piedmont continues with the closing of Nonna Mia Cafe & Pizzeria. Prior to becoming Nonna Mia, the space was Sweet Devil Moon and years ago it was the popular The Big Red Tomato Bistro. After Nonna Mia opened last spring, I immediately questioned the viability of such an eatery. It seemed to be an ill conceived concept and the food was just not that good. At the time that it opened, it had an existing sister location in New Orleans. A call to that location today verifies that recently, the two locations were being operated as if they were in no way related, other than the name of course. The restaurant's website mentions a location "Coming Soon to DC" but I doubt that will ever come to fruition. ToNeTo Atlanta
