My family and I were excited to head down to the Whiteaker last Friday night to try the Pizza at the newly opened Slice Pizzeria and Bar. Things were running very smoothly for a soft opening. To order we went to the front counter and chose from 8 different options of slices available, I ordered the Chicken BBQ and Spinach Mushroom (Fungus Among-Us), and my wife had the Margherita Pizza. We also have an 18 month old boy named Orion who had the Cheese Pizza. We got our food fast and were able to sit outside to enjoy a nice autumn evening! They were playing a variety of seventies music to set the mood for fun place to hang out. There was also a full bar staffed by 2 bartenders to make crafted cocktails off of their menu. The food was great, and they had vegetarian and vegan options. We had a good time there and enjoyed the atmosphere, I hope this place becomes a mainstay in the Whiteaker Neighborhood. For more information go to their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SliceEugene/ and be sure and vist them at their official Grand Opening this weekend October 11th-14th!

A couple of friends and I decided to visit the latest restaurant to open in the Whiteaker, Bari Trattoria. We were seated immediately without a reservation, and the wait staff got our drinks and appetizers to us quickly. We ordered the Wood Fired Mixed Olives and Calamari for our appetizers. For the main course my friend Sheila ordered the Spaghetti Marinara with Meatballs, Chris ordered the Smoked Pork Ragu, and I ordered the Fettuccini Alfredo with Smoked Chicken.
We were all very happy with our meals, the chicken was was tender and filled with smoke flavor. The noodles were handmade in house and you could taste the difference! Keeping true to their name they have a great mixologist on staff that had several intriguing house cocktails on the menu.
They also have a great Tuesday night special that none of us had a chance to try 1 slice and a beer for $13. Perhaps the best part of the evening was when they brought out our bill, and even after the 4 cocktails we added to the meal our bill was only $82. Great food, great prices, great location! I will definitely be back! Click here for more info http://baritrattoria.com/
