Alea Iacta Est — Caesar's On the Move

Although Caesar's Fine Italian Cuisine hasn't gone so far as to cross the Cumberland the way their namesake did the Rubicon, they have at least moved a lot closer to the river. After a very long run at Lion's Head on White Bridge Road, Caesar's Ristorante Italiano closed up shop earlier this winter.

Although Caesar Randazzo and his son Vito are no longer running the house, several of the former employees have taken the name and the concept to a new location downtown at 221
Sixth Ave. N. This was the former site of the Southern Cafe until Caesar's took over the space a couple of weeks ago.

The hours are 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., with the possibility of adding breakfast later. Their proximity to Capitol Hill and so many other downtown workers could make that a nice option for early morning nourishment. They also offer delivery to downtown locales.

The menu looks like a pretty standard bill of fare with fried appetizers, a few salads and your typical offering of pasta/cheese/sauce dishes that all end in vowels. Subs, burgers and pizzas are also available, but the inclusion of Hawaiian, Mexican Style, BBQ Chicken and Ranch pizzas might raise a few eyebrows among purists. Don't even get me started on the "Margarita" pizza.

As always, if you get there before we do, let us know what you think in the comments.
