Quaint Italian Charm, Delicious Food, & Great Specials at
The Fountain Kitchen & Wine Bar
There has been a restaurant on the corner of Pineapple and Orange for quite some time. That restaurant has changed frequently, never really finding one that could take root in the little niche corner by Burns Court of downtown. That is, until now. The Fountain Kitchen & Wine Bar opened in 2016 and seems to have been gathering a large, local, and loyal following ever since.
Italian Done Right.
I popped into The Fountain a couple of weeks ago for happy hour with a friend on a Monday, and surprise! My original having-a-case-of-the-Mondays day turned into five-dollar-gourmet-pizza Monday! (Which is obviously a better kind of Monday, to be sure.) Every. Single. Pizza on their menu is $5 on Monday, and if that's not a way to start your week, I don't know what is.
With their excellent selection of wine, my companion and I settled into one of the outdoor seats overlooking the fountain and sipped our rose while we waited for our pizza. The restaurant is inherently Italian, featuring the aforementioned pizza, as well as salads, toasted sandwiches, and small plates. According to a multitude of online reviews, and our own experience, the food is something they do quite well. The place smells fantastic, and every dish rolling out looked the same. Our pizza was absolutely indulgently delicious.
Great Food. Great Deals.
In addition to $5 pizza Mondays, The Fountain has Wine Wednesdays--where all wine is 50% off, (This is clearly the next time I'll be stopping by!), Thirsty Thursdays--where beer & wine is $2 off, and occasionally features live music on the patio. If you haven't stopped in yet to this relatively new downtown gem, take a walk down Pineapple and check it out!
