Baraonda is a midtown artisan pizza emporium. It's at 3rd and Peachtree. The atmosphere is casual/elegant, as you'd expect. They have their own wood or coal-fired oven that's right in the middle of the dining room.
My friend Jennifer and I were hungry so we each had our own pizza. I had a capricciosa with ham and artichokes. The crust was more in the New York style, thin but still with substance. (Antico, by comparison, has an extremely thin crust that the Italians favored.) I didn't notice any black char around the edge. Some people don't like char, I enjoy just a little. The cheese was excellent. The sauce was very good, possibly overwhelmed a little by the other ingredients I chose.
