Nestled against the busy BeltLine Eastside Trail, this sprawling restaurant and hangout spot effectively occupies Atlanta’s hipster epicenter. Its popularity is helped mightily by a high-concept design—expansive screened-in porch, forest mural, woodsy graphics, picnic-style tables—that helps you imagine you’re at a summer camp that serves cocktails but doesn’t make you hike.
