The menu also features a variety of “drizzles,” housemade sauces that include spinach basil pesto, jalapeno cilantro ranch and stoneground peach mustard; build your own pizza and salad options; and a variety of cinnamon rolls including one topped with whiskey, caramel, pecans and bacon.
Also look for more than 10 beers on tap from local breweries and art from Atlanta artists gracing the walls.
Gray said the Howell Mill location, a “recent find,” was chosen because the “area is on the up and up” and Adair Park was picked because “the community is underserved, and we want to provide a quality product for a decent price.”
While there’s an obvious emphasis on the food, Slim & Husky’s also looks beyond the kitchen, Gray said, by trying to choose locations for their restaurants where they can contribute to the community.
“Adair Park is an underserved community,” Gray said. “’We want to provide a quality product for a decent price for the community.”
Slim & Husky’s also plans to organize community events in Atlanta similar to ones its participated in in Nashville including 12 Days of Giving, with the restaurant feeding more than 1,500 students at 12 Nashville schools and talking to them about entrepreneurship and Pizza and a Movie nights where the eatery will show old 90s movies on a big screen and serve pizza.
“We’re trying to bring the Slim & Husky’s culture,” Gray said. “We’re not just a pizza restaurant.”
Gray said there are big plans for Slim & Husky’s, including more Atlanta and Nashville locations and an eye toward restaurants in Memphis and Birmingham.
