Ria Pell's new tongue-in-cheek restaurant and bar had to jump through a lot of hoops to convince its rabid opponents in Inman Park that it would be an asset and not a disturbance. With its rumpus-room decor and retro menu (Guinness-braised beef ribs Wellington, brownie sundae with liquor-soaked cherries), Sauced positions itself squarely in the 1950s.

Sticks and dips, bacon peanut brittle, seafood-packed pirate stew, and Southern-themed dolmas made with collard greens and rice may be more amusing than anything else, but with a cocktail in one hand and a bit of humor on your side, you'll likely enjoy a restaurant whose daytime counterpart (Ria's Bluebird) has a proven track record. There's a $15 minimum to use a credit card (three cards max), and only one check per table.
