restaurant pizze stone on overton park in midtown memphis

IMG_2386We tried Pizze Stone last Friday night with our neighbors Brett, Sharon, and their 3 year old Jesse. We got four pizzas for takeout and the bill was $54, which is pretty pricey for pizza. Despite it’s high cost, the pizza was probably the best I’ve had in Memphis. Most of the ingredients are made on location and their toppings are quite fresh. Their crust is I would say medium to thin. Pizzas range anywhere from $8 to $15. Though we didn’t eat in the restaurant, I could tell it is kid friendly because there were two 4 tops with at least 3 children between them seated in the main room when I picked up our four pizzas at 6:15 PM.

We got the following:
Pesto – Pesto, Goat Cheese, Mozzarella, Tomato, and Pine Nuts
Red Led – Tomato Sauce, Roasted Garlic, Fresh Oregano, and Fresh Mozzarella
Napoli – Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Pepperoni, Sausage, Oven Roasted Crimini Mushrooms
Mafioso – Meatball Pizza with Caramelized Onions

My favorite in order were probably Red Led, Pesto, Napoli, and finally Mafioso, though they were all very tasty. I encourage you to try them.

new restaurant – the castle

View Larger Map

thecastlemenu.jpgI don’t know if you’ve seen the review for this restaurant called The Castle at the Commercial Appeal or at Dining with Monkeys, but we just went there tonight and it’s well worth it. I was frustrated that we couldn’t get a menu beforehand so we had to order based off of those two previous articles. We ordered both the Gyro plate ($7.99) and the Castle Combo Veggie Deal ($8.99) and they were both terrific. It fed Diana, Elek, and me tonight and I’ll have lunch tomorrow. The grape leaves were a little mushy (I don’t really know why), but everything else was pretty much perfect. We’re glad that Elek tried it as well. Since I was frustrated that the menu wasn’t posted anywhere, I thought I would do everyone else the favor and post it here. Enjoy!
