Benny Ventano's - the new restaurant in the former Continental Divide / Mint / Davis & Main space - is now open. Benny's does pizza. Giant - bigger than a tire, with slices bigger than your face - pizza. It's kind of their thing. In fact, pizza is kind of their only thing. The menu at the Richmond Benny's, which opened April 8 at 2501 W. Main St., is the same as the other 19 Benny's in the country: three regular pizzas (cheese, pepperoni and sliced Italian sausage), two month special pizzas (April is buffalo chicken and garlic mushroom) and potato chips).
That's it (though wine and beer will be added at the Richmond spot). The pizzas are $5 a slice or $38 for a whole 28-inch pizza that can feed 8 people (cheese pizza is $4 a slice and $30 a pizza. The chips are $1.50). Chris Brown and Zach Toth - two Virginia Tech graduates - opened the first Benny's - Benny Marzano's - in Blacksburg in 2011. Today, there are 13 Benny's in Virginia and seven more scattered through North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
