Wednesday, January 3, 2018

Luna Pizza Café has opened at 632 S. Pitt St. The restaurant, in a remodeled former Coca-Cola bottling plant, is next to Pitt Street Brewing Company.

The pizza features made-from-scratch dough, is topped with locally sourced ingredients and baked in an 800-degree brick oven.

“We’re trying to elevate pizza to a degree that people aren’t used to,” owner Richard Williams said. “The idea is for people to walk into the restaurant and say, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I’m in Greenville.’ We want a visit to Luna to be the best part of your day.”

To learn to make authentic pizza, Williams enrolled in the Bivero Pizza Academy in Florence, Italy, and spent weeks over the summer and again in December working in Pizzeria Zero Zero.

When it comes to the pizza, Williams says it’s all about the crust and the quality of the ingredients. “We’ll have hand-crafted Neapolitan pizza cooked in under 2 minutes at 800 degrees, fresh appetizers, some lovely desserts and a full bar. We want to use as many local products as we can in interesting ways, and we want to bring a fun and sophisticated dining experience to the people of eastern North Carolina,” he said.

Pizzas include Margherita with fresh basil ($12); Shiitake Mushroom and Sausage ($15); Mediterranean with anchovies, olives and capers ($16); Jalapeno and Bacon ($16); and Prosciutto and Arugula ($16). Customers also can build their own, starting with a base of tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella and adding ingredients of their choice.

For more information, call 751-0900 or visit Luna Pizza Café on Facebook or at http://lunapizza.co.

Singular: “Wasp.” Plural: “Wasps.” Right?

But that plural form of the noun is hard to say, and it sounds kind of silly to me: “Waspeses.” I’m reminded that there are other ways in which these words are pronounced. For instance, I’ve heard it…

The 23rd-century world of "Mortal Engines" looks great: a fabulous and richly textured steampunk dystopia of haves and have-nots straight out of H.G. Wells. Populated, on the one side, by people in frock coats festooned with gold braid, and, on the other, begrimed laborers in goggles and grease-…

It’s an odd-ball sort of bush.

It’s a native species — nothing odd about that — and it was originally restricted entirely to the coast, from North Carolina all the way to Mississippi.

Now, though, it is common well inland within all of these states, and beyond, and appears…

In the annals of potentially disastrous spinoffs, "Creed" surely stands as an all-time champion. Directed with finesse and sensitivity by Ryan Coogler — who famously went on to make the blockbuster "Black Panther" — the 2015 drama had it all: a classically contoured boxing story, a…

Over nearly three decades of “The Nutcracker,” it is hard to imagine that anyone saw the Dance Arts Theatre production more than Jeane Welch.

She watched the first performance in 1985 when her daughter, Marty, was a dancer. She was in the audience when her granddaughter, Holton, twirled…
