If you’re looking for the best pizza available in Huntsville, maybe even in the South, G. Todd Daniel, owner of The Wine Rack, believes his new pizza venture, N Season Gourmet Pizzas will fit the bill.
Quite literally a dream come true, G. Todd explained that “the idea for N Season originally came about in 1992. I came up with the marketing plan for the restaurant and named it N Season. However at the last moment, our funding fell through.” So the project was placed onto the back burner.
But now, after 35 years in the food and beverage industry, having worked as a professional caterer, the Food and Beverage Director of The Ledges, the General Manager of Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and having owned and operated his own local wine shop, The Wine Rack, G. Todd has finally found the opportunity to open his first restaurant. “Food and beverage has been in my blood my whole life. It’s all I’ve ever done. Even though I got my degree in computer information systems!” he laughed.
The name, N Season Gourmet Pizzas, is derived from G. Todd’s passion for using the best local produce available. Having cultivated connections with local farmers through his wife’s work at the local food bank, he feels that N Season’s focus on using the best local and fresh ingredients available is what will set his pizza apart. “I have the best flour, mozzarella, sauce, and meats available on the market. People really notice the difference. When you get the pizza in your mouth, you actually want to eat the crust. I’ve gotten so many compliments from people saying this is the best pizza they have ever had. When you use the right ingredients it’s just so different,” he said.
And for those looking to sit back and relax while eating their pizza, N Season’s sister store, The Wine Rack (located just a few steps down from N Season), is inviting customers to bring their pizza over and dine in their wine tasting room. A relaxing atmosphere that welcomes customers to sip wine and draught beer along with their pizza. “I like to pair our Trip to NY City Pizza with my Super Tuscan wine,” said G.Todd. “We’ve got a NY great pizza that really showcases what NY is all about on their pizza, and I’ve got a great super Tuscan, it pairs great with pizza.”
With a large selection of creative specialty pizzas, N Season plans to have a rotating pizza of the month and a pizza of the week. “The pizza of the month right now is a reuben pizza,” G Todd explained. “We make the crust out of rye dough and then top it with corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing, and a bit of caraway seed.” And if that isn’t bold enough for you, the store has plans to feature wilder pizzas as well, such as their shrimp and tequila pizza and their duck and polenta pizza.
Now open from 5pm – 9pm, Monday through Saturday, N Season will soon expand it’s menu and hours in July to 11am – 9pm Monday through Saturday and introduce sandwiches and salads to their offerings as well. Located at 11700 Memorial Pkwy #H Huntsville, AL, N Season is available for pick-up or delivery all the way up to Airport Road and all the way down to the river.
