The chef behind Proof on Main in the swanky 21c Museum Hotel will debut a new restaurant in NuLu at 5 p.m. today.

Chef Michael Paley has transformed a former auto service garage at 700 East Market Street into Garage Bar, a casual restaurant with a menu featuring artisan pizza, ham, oysters and a variety of Southern food.

Here’s a blurb about the restaurant’s pizza selections:

Pizza is the heart of the menu. Each pie is 100 percent handmade, naturally leavened, and cooked in a wood-fired brick oven that was built in Naples, Italy by Stefano Ferrara. Pizzas are baked quickly at 850 degrees to produce a thin, chewy crust that is lightly blistered and crisp on the outside.

I love pizza, but there is something more intriguing in the restaurant’s repertoire — A HAM BAR.

The rest of the menu is anchored by the ham bar, which serves up local and regional Country Hams served with Toast and Red Eye Aioli alongside an ever-changing selection of freshly shucked oysters. The ham bar seats seven diners and offers full menu service with a view of the open kitchen and pizza oven.

YES, PLEASE.
