Located in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, it offers a multi-level dining experience, including a rooftop terrace. Temptations for carnivores include the 40 oz. tomahawk chop.

Castellucci Hospitality Group has moved its Sandy Springs pizza operation to the heart of the Emory area. With Edwin Molina still at its helm, Double Zero Napoletana reopened as Double Zero in Emory Village. Double Zero continues to be a destination for Southern Italian fare focused on pasta and pizza. But accents are borrowed from other traditions, such as the ancho chile marinade on the octopus or the grilled kale salad, but then it does come adorned with ricotta salata, bringing everything back to its origins. Double Zero, Emory Village, 1577 N. Decatur Rd., Atlanta, GA 30307, 404-991-3666.
