Slice was born of a desire to mix great New York style pizza with an Italian-inspired menu, delicious drinks and top-notch service.
Attracting business professionals, GSU students, tourists and downtown locals alike to the first floor of a historic building on the corner of Poplar and Fairlie streets, Slice Downtown fuses New York style pizzeria cuisine with an authentic urban vibe that is pure Atlanta. With pizza creations rivaling those of even the most inventive New York City pizzeria and a menu as unpretentious and distinctive as the restaurant’s diverse clientele, Slice Downtown has something for everyone.
If it’s a feast you seek, specialty pies such as the Loaded Baked Potato (potatoes, applewood smoked bacon, onions and cheddar cheese with a side of sour cream), Pesto Pollo (Pesto sauce, chicken, spinach and sundried tomatoes) and Cordon Bleu (bleu cheese sauce, chicken, ham and Roma tomatoes) are sure to please. Hungry patrons can also choose from over 30 fresh ingredients to create a personalized slice or a 12” or 16” pie that will satisfy even the most out-there pizza cravings.
Entrée highlights include the Lasagna Classico (ground beef, sausage, ricotta cheese, marinara and melted mozzarella served with garlic bread), the Chico Suave (skillet baked mozzarella and cheddar cheese bread) and the Stromboli (stuffed with ham, salami, cappicola, pepperoni, Provolone and Parmesan cheese). For those desiring lighter fare, an array of appetizers, fresh salads and deli-style sandwiches are sure to please.
Of course, the Slice Downtown experience is not complete without a little something from the bar. Alongside domestic and imported draft and bottled beers, customers will find a selection of quality white and red wine and a fully stocked bar featuring more than a dozen flavored vodkas. Experienced bartenders are happy to mix something up on the spot for guests in the mood to try something new.
For the lunchtime crowd, Slice Downtown offers a combo deal. Every Monday through Friday, from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m., customers can get a giant one-topping slice and their choice of a side or casesar salad for $5.50 plus tax.
In the evenings, all day everyday drink specials like $9 Miller Lite pitchers, $5 Smirnoff Martinis, $3 Yuengling and Miller High Life bottles and $2.75 PBR Tallboys pair with affordable appetizers like our famous skillet bruschetta to ensure Happy Hour is always happier at Slice Downtown.
On the entertainment front, Slice Downtown hosts a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament every Monday at 8 p.m. The tournament features weekly prizes for each night’s winner as well as a grand prize for the highest ranked player at the end of the tournament.
Music lovers are invited to spice up Friday nights with The Jared Lanham Trio – a core group of talented young musicians from Georgia State joined by a rotating cast of sit-ins and special guests. The Jared Lanham Trio plays every second and fourth Friday of the month, and best of all: no cover charge.
And, if you are a pizza lover looking for a low-key evening at home, you can still enjoy the best pizza in Atlanta because Slice Downtown offers delivery service through Zifty.com.
