Pizza at Perimeter Mall, take two.
Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria has opened its second metro Atlanta location in the Dunwoody Mall.
The eatery takes over the space vacated by Varasano’s Pizza, which closed in June 2016 after less than a year in business.
Max’s — which also has a location at 300 Marietta St. NW that opened in 2009 — will serve New York-style pizza baked in a coal-burning pizza oven, similar to its Atlanta location, with some menu add-ons for the Dunwoody location. Specialty pizzas include the “Caprino” with sausage, goat cheese, mozzarella, red onion and basil; “Tradizionale” with pepperoni, sausage, roasted red peppers and red onion; and the “Fontina & Funghi” with fontina, wild mushrooms, caramelized onions and fresh oregano.
The space offers 200 person seating, private dining and full-service bar.
The restaurant is owned by Legacy Ventures, which also owns Atlanta spots STATS Brewpub, Game-X, Twin Smokers BBQ, Glenn’s Kitchen, SkyLounge at the Glenn Hotel, Der Biergarten, Ventanas, City View Room, Legacy Catering and Events and Legacy Test Kitchen.
