In the course of a week, two beloved pizzerias (Ammazza Decatur, Nina & Rafi) and a revered Sichuan spot (Gu's Kitchen) each made a comeback of sorts. How do they stack up against the originals?
There hasn’t been much quality Korean barbecue inside the Perimeter since Mirror of Korea on Ponce de Leon Avenue closed forever ago. D92 Korean BBQ set out to change that when it opened in Decatur last August.
The Grandma Pie that made O4W Pizza is off the menu at Anthony Spina and Billy Streck's new restaurant, Nina & Rafi. Instead, the duo are focusing on the restaurant's other pizza styles and Italian-American comfort foods.
Part of what makes the Atlanta BeltLine so useful is that it encourages exploration of pockets of the city that were once overlooked. At Estrella, not only do you get to explore one of those pockets—you also get a taste of a region far more remote—Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula.
During its weekday lunch service, Saltwood Charcuterie and Bar at the Loews Atlanta Hotel has an amazing, all-you-can-eat salad bar with a ton of toppings to choose from and even unlimited housemade potato chips served on the side.
Former Watershed chef Zeb Stevenson is planning to open his first restaurant, Redbird, with Watershed cofounder Ross Jones in the summer of 2019. Known as a Southern chef, Stevenson is going with a more free-from menu that has global influences and fewer restraints on sourcing.
Chef Zeb Stevenson, formerly of Watershed, relies on Green Ola Acres’s papaya squash as the foundation of a savory pie that’s perfect for Thanksgiving. Although you can use different varieties for this recipe, papaya squash has the right amount of sweetness, complexity, and water content, and its distinct nuttiness makes it perfect for a pie.
As its name suggests, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken serves hot chicken, a style of bird born and perfected in Nashville (and, so far, unrivaled elsewhere) that’s coated in an earthy and fiery slick of spiced fryer oil after it’s been cooked to a golden crisp. Located on Moreland Avenue, Hattie B’s is Atlanta’s first Nashville hot chicken import.
Meet B's Cracklin' BBQ's Bryan Furman, who went from former welder to "Georgia’s New King of Barbecue," the dream team that is Heirloom Market BBQ's Jiyeon Lee and Cody Taylor, and the pitmaster behind Old Brick Pit Barbeque, Stephanie Garner.
You can learn a lot about the origins of Momonoki, a new fast-casual joint in Midtown, from the Instagrams of Taiwanese-American chef Jason Liang and Taiwanese pastry chef ChingYao Wang (who’s also his wife). The couple best known for Decatur’s Brush Sushi Izakaya recently ate their way through Taipei and Tokyo as inspiration for Momonoki and its attached bakery, Momo Cafe.
