Kevin Gillespie’s Gunshow is Atlanta’s gutsiest restaurant. The dining room is short on luxury—stark spotlights, metal tables, loud rock music—but high on intrigue. Seven to eight chefs cook and then deliver plates directly to diners, who can choose to accept or reject them. You might find Hawaiian paté en croute with pineapple, jalapeño, and Parmesan aioli, or confit sunchoke with peanuts, garlic, coffee, and seaweed. The experience is made all the more fun thanks to cocktail director Mercedes O’Brien’s unorthodox drinks and the restaurant’s roving bar cart. 924 Garrett Street, 404-380-1886,
