To some folks you’d have to be nuts to pay $100 for a 12-inch pizza pie.
Perhaps it’s fitting, then, that the “Crazy Capobianco” pizza is one of the offerings at Asylum, the restaurant and bar that opened July 13 in the old Echo Lounge-turned-Icehouse space in East Atlanta Village.
Named for Frankie Capobianco, Asylum’s chef, the pie is her brainchild, Jonathan Hammond, the restaurant’s general manager, told East Atlanta Patch.
Capobianco, a New Orleans native, was the chef for Nawlin’s, the now-closed eatery that operated in My Sister’s Room, the EAV’s lesbian bar.
” ‘It’s called the Asylum, so we should do something crazy,’ ” Hammond recounted Capobianco as saying.
So the meal was born with an ingredients list so decadent as to make Dionysus and Henry VIII blush:
- Champagne-infused caviar
- Lobster tail marinated in cognac
- Seared duck breast drizzled
