More pizza is coming to Brookhaven.
Avellino's Pizza is opening a second location in Brookhaven. The new pizza shop is opening on Windsor Parkway, not far from TOWN Brookhaven. The space was reportedly a former creperie but I don't recall ever seeing it in business.
The original Avellino's opened in 2009 and is located on West College Avenue in Decatur.
When the Decatur location opened it was branded "Avellino's Pizza Caffe." Today it's labeled "Avellino's Pizza Pub." The new Brookhaven location reflects yet another branding, "Avellino's Wood Fired Pizza." I'm told the menu will be the same at both locations. Avellino's serves a variety of salads, pizzas, pastas, sandwiches (Italian Hero) and classic Italian desserts.
There is no shortage of pizza in and around Brookhaven with Galla's, Corner Pizza, treza, Mellow Mushroom and Pizza Shack among the more notable area offerings. It will be interesting to see how Avellino's fares and whether their odd location pays off. While their location is in Brookhaven, it's not on Peachtree or Dresden and therefore might be thought of by some a second rate location, on the surface this is true. The one key ingredient in this location is that it would provide a great base for possible delivery in the Brookhaven and even North Buckhead Neighborhoods.
As of now, plans call for the new Avellino's to open in late October.
