Firepit Pizza Tavern

Firepit is a full-service restaurant with a chef-driven menu, craft beers, wines, and specialty cocktails. We believe it is important to offer great food, in a unique environment, with a warm welcoming staff. ​Firepit brings seditiously delicious pizza to Atlanta's historic Grant Park neighborhood and is located in the Larkin on Memorial shopping center. We keep our establishment small to form personal relationships with all our guests. As a community-oriented company, we will partner with local organizations and businesses to make our neighborhood prosper.


Firepit Pizza Tavern was created by Leslie Cohen, an Atlanta native and winner of the Food Network's Cutthroat Kitchen. She has brought pride and passion to her career as a restauranteur, which started at a young age. She studied Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales. Leslie spent 11 years growing her ability to lead as the General Manager of Roasters.
