Nina & Rafi is the Beltline at its best. And having fantastic pizza–REALLY fantastic pizza–for your last meal of 2020 is a great way to go out. Grab their ‘za to go or enjoy a slice for dine-in or patio dining with their heated patios. We love their arancini, a deep fried rice ball, and their spicy Tony Pepperoni pizza.

For a family friendly, no fuss New Year’s Eve that’s also a meal to remember, grab some great takeout or delivery to enjoy from Pit Boss BBQ. We’re crazy about this Southside dive’s smoked wings, brisket cooked low and slow, and over the top loaded baked potato (weekly special). If you’re having a few more over, then try out their catering menu for a meal your guests will rave about.
