With Thanksgiving weekend upon us, and the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza season pretty much in full swing, you’ll probably soon be so over the foods associated with the holidays (turkey, stuffing, gravy, leftovers, etc.). So what better time to discover a new pizza place?

Given that the holidays are almost upon us and a lot of us are going to be running back and forth to the grocery store to get provisions for the entertaining, dining and self-medicating we’ll be doing for the next few weeks, it makes sense that some higher-end grocery chains are putting in restaurants — to keep shoppers fueled while they peruse a cavernous cornucopia of wares.

We’ve seen four different restaurants in as many years in the seemingly perfect prime location at the corner of 13th and Locust streets. But despite the space’s history of grand openings and grand closings, we expect Bud & Marilyn’s, 1234 Locust St., to be around for a while.

Upscale Greek restaurant Estia, 1405 Locust St., really goes the distance when trying to transport diners to the Mediterranean tranquility of the Greek islands, thanks in part to the dimly lit and ornate museum-like atmosphere of the spacious restaurant and the attentive waitstaff. The menu is equally meticulous.

Whetstone Tavern, the newest restaurant to inhabit the Queen Village corner at 700 S. Fifth St., aims for a relaxed and rustic feel with its space and menu. And it works.
