Amalfi Pizza Offers Pay What You Can Meals to Irma Evacuees

Amalfi Pizza welcomes Hurricane Irma evacuees and invites individuals and families to come and have a meal for whatever they feel they can pay on the food portion of their bill (excluding alcoholic beverages). This offer is valid to anyone in town from mandatory evacuation zones. All they need to do is ask for a manager and show a valid ID from one of the areas affected. 

“Our hearts go out to those displaced by Hurricane Irma and understand the struggles they are experiencing,” said Amalfi Pizza founding partner Stephen de Haan. “This is our way of welcoming evacuees to the Amalfi family with a warm meal that could make them feel at home and welcome in our city.” 

Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner in downtown Atlanta, Amalfi Pizza is a traditional Neapolitan pizzeria centered around two 6000 pound wood-burning brick ovens imported from Italy that were lifted into the second floor space by cranes. The 170 seat dining room has large semicircular booths, custom wrought iron chandeliers along with Juliet balconies overlooking an Italian-inspired entryway. Co-founder and operating partner Greg Grant developed an authentic Italian menu that will include Neapolitan-style pizzas as well as appetizers, salads, pasta dishes and original desserts. Originating in and the true pizza of Naples in the 1600s, Vera Pizza Napoletana is 12 inches or less in size, made from simple fresh quality ingredients from the Campania region of Italy and cooked at temperatures in excess of 900 degrees in approximately 60 seconds. In addition to traveling to Naples and throughout the entire region to find the best ingredients, both Stephen de Haan and Greg Grant staged with the Italian Pizzaiolo Maestros at Pizzeria Mattozzi, established in 1830, and Pizzeria Da Attilo. This apprenticeship, along with studying in the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, have allowed their passion for food to develop into the skills necessary to bring this historic, simple, and beautifully executed street food to Atlanta.

Stillhouse Set to Open in Atlanta with Craft Burgers and Moonshine

 

Andrews Entertainment District is set to add Stillhouse to its impressive hospitality destination at 56 East Andrews Drive in Buckhead on Friday, August 30th. Using all of the moonshines available in Georgia, Stillhouse derives its name from its in-house cocktail program where moonshine is employed as the base ingredient to create classic cocktails. The carefully crafted cocktail menu is complemented by the ultimate burger experience with locally sourced ingredients and inspired toppings.

4 wayStillhouse offers a modern twist on burgers that set the standard and go to the extreme to taste the best. Applying regionally sourced products, baking cheeses onto buns and using house made condiments make the burgers stand out. Craft burgers selections include premium varieties of grass fed beef, mustard and Memphis pork, Coca-Cola teriyaki moonshine marinated chicken, seared turkey, fresh ground duck with house made confit, lump crab cakes, Apalachicola fried oysters and remarkable vegetarian options such as the Black eyed pea burger. Additional menu items include small plates, salads and shared sides consisting of deviled eggs, moonshine mussels, fried oysters, collard greens, spicy macaroni & cheese, fried green tomatoes, peanut butter hummus and more. Guests can dine inside, on the terrace or takeaway until late Monday through Saturday from 5pm until 1:30am.

At Stillhouse, the moonshine cocktail program is served in a variety of ways to enjoy the distilled sensation. Using six charred oak barrels prominently featured on the back bar, the month aged spirits are second to none. Served straight or in a cocktail, the moonshine infusions combine regional ingredients such as Vidalia onions, Georgia peaches, watermelon, mint and more so flavors are balanced and shine. Guests may also choose to smoke their spirit or cocktail with fresh apple, cherry, pecan, and maple wood chips. Stimulating garnishes including local berries, freshly squeezed juices, bitters and house made syrups ensure smooth, flavorsome cocktails. Additional bar options include a small but carefully selected list that features beer staples and regional microbrews, top wine sellers and an American craft selection of liquors such as the award-winning Boyd & Blair Vodka.

“We love the history and flavor of moonshine. It took finding the right balance of ingredients to get an approachable but complex cocktail that pleases the palate,” said Andrews Entertainment District President Steve de Haan. “Furthermore, we felt moonshine paired nicely with our amazing regionally sourced burgers to create an upscale burger bar.”

As guests enter Stillhouse, they will notice the natural materials, black and white prints of stills, bootleggers, and moonshiners. Adjacent to the back bar are two lit chalk board menus and daily specials. The space is warmed up with custom made Edison pendant lights and includes booths and whiskey barrel tables with custom tops. The ceiling has antiqued copper drop tiles alluding to the stills used to create this storied spirit. Featuring natural stone floors, a large wooden beam back bar and hammered copper accents on the bar, Stillhouse allows Buckhead’s elite an evening out without the pretentiousness.
