When Anthony Spina announced in 2017 he’d be opening a new restaurant with Billy Streck just a stone’s throw from his shuttered O4W Pizza (which moved to Duluth), there was excitement over the return of Spina’s beloved Grandma Pie to Atlanta.
Alas, when Nina & Rafi opened late last year on the Eastside Beltline, the Grandma Pie was conspicuously absent from the menu.
“It was a hard decision to not put it on the menu,” he told the AJC in December. “It will definitely show up here on occasion.”
There’s good news for Grandma Pie lovers who have been mourning the loss of their pie ITP -- the square pizza topped with mozzarella, marinara sauce, Pecorino Romano, olive oil, oregano and basil will make an appearance at Nine & Rafi from starting at 5-11 p.m. Monday, March 11 (until the pizza sells out).
In celebration, the restaurant is offering amari specials, including vintage amari and The Corleone Float cocktail, made with Foro Amaro, butter pecan gelato, Coca-Cola, bourbon spiced pecans and Luxardo Cherries.
