A take-out shop serving pizzas, sandwiches and bowls is set to open tomorrow in the Westview neighborhood.
Firewall Food Stop will offer to-go service Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Chef and owner Sam Eidus, who has owned a Firewall food truck for several years, was looking for a new prep kitchen when he stumbled on the idea for a brick-and-mortar eatery.
“After moving to the neighborhood two years ago I was originally just looking to build a prep kitchen for the food truck,” Eidus said in a press release. “But after living in this cool historic neighborhood and witnessing its evolution, I knew the space needed to be about Westview first and foremost. We’re thrilled to be part of The Westview Flats commercial district where small businesses are almost exclusively resident owned and operated, and to be bringing something new and unique to Southwest Atlanta.”
The menu features four rotating specialty woodfire Neapolitan-style pizzas including The Farmer, made with fennel sausage, sweet peppers and fresh mozzarella; The Gardener with spinach, tomato, ricotta, lemon and garlic; The Rancher made with country ham, ricotta, egg yolk and arugula; and The Cook with Grandma’s Sunday gravy, beef short rib, long hot peppers and Parmesan. There’s also a build-your-own pizza option.
Other menu items include the Southern Italian, a nod to Eidus’ New Jersey roots and current city, made with braised pork shoulder, collard greens, sharp provolone and long hot peppers served on an H&F roll and the Fertile Crescent sandwich made with 10-spice chicken, pickles, greens, poached raisins, walnuts and zhoug on flatbread. Hummus bowls will be offered “create your own” style with additions including zhoug hot sauce, Northern African tomato stew and roasted cauliflower shawarma.
The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. The food truck will be available for booking Tuesday-Sunday.
