ATLANTA — The closing of pasta shop Via Elisa caused us as much grief as the demise of the Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead.
ATLANTA — Have you heard the joke about "the pasta diet"? It goes like this. You walk "pasta" the doughnut shop. You walk "pasta" the candy store. You walk "pasta" the ice cream parlor. You lose weight. Pretty silly;
Timing is everything.
Opening up a pasta business in the midst of the no-carbohydrate Atkins' diet craze, for instance, is not the best example of great timing. "It was tough," admits Elisa Gambino, who did just that, opening Via Elisa in July 2002.
