No. 6: The General Muir

The towering pastrami sandwich slathered with grainy mustard; the Swiss chard fritters at dinner, barely visible under a blizzard of Parmesan; the poutine, available noon and night, tangled with cheese curds and just enough gravy (frizzled bits of pastrami optional): So many dishes tempt at the General Muir. Executive chef Todd Ginsberg uses the classic Jewish deli as a template for the restaurant but doesn’t limit his repertoire—particularly in the evening, when his small plates dazzle. Brave the crush at brunch for the city’s fluffiest omelet.

1540 Avenue Place, 30329, 678-927-9131,

    So glad to see this gem ranked so highly. Highly recommend the seasonal trout dish. Perfect setting. An elegant deli.
