THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Dive Restaurant Review

: Gourmet pizzas and clay pot dishes from the wood burning oven represent the adventurous side of this comfort food haven, which operated for nearly 20 years as Highland Grounds. In its incarnation as The Dive, it's still a great place for breakfast and lunch, from huevos rancheros and chipotle scrambles to burgers (beef, turkey or veggie) and tuna melts. And now dinners feature exotica like Claysagna---layers of eggplant, portobello mushrooms, roma tomatoes and more, all cooked in a clay pot. House mixologist Josh Curtis crafts custom cocktails to wash it all down.
