A year ago chef-owner Ali Mesghali relocated his Sandy Springs draw half a block to a former Midas auto shop. The Johnson Studio tricked out its 6,000 square feet with sky-blue tile flowing through the open kitchen and leather banquettes surrounding live potted orange trees. The place is slammed nightly, due to a kitchen that delivers finely calibrated renditions of classic Persian dishes: hot, crisp-squashy flatbreads; creamy yogurt spreads; and kebabs in a spectrum of proteins. Go for lamb in any form, including braised neck as tender as short rib.
