House Pizzeria on Airport Blvd.

I just ate at the new pizza place on Airport Blvd. (near 52nd Street) called House Pizzeria. I can not believe how nice this place is -- screened in dining area (for those of us who'd rather be out than in), great beer and wine selection, and "gourmet" style pizza. This definitely rivals Salvation Pizza in terms of quality, but it is much less expensive. (And closer to my house, which is a bonus.)

I understand that their wood-fired pizza oven was imported from Italy -- it looks like they spared no expense with this place. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's lovely inside, and the food is very good.

New Ararat?

I think the owners of the original restaurant on North Loop had a falling out. One of them is opening a new restaurant elsewhere, and the other owner is in the process of fixing up the property on North Loop to reopen at some future date. It's not clear which of them got the cooks or recipes -- they always had outstanding food, but their old restaurant was simply unsanitary. Hopefully after some major renovations it will be clean and tasty. Let me know how the place in east Austin is.
