When Lusca closed early this year it was a blow to the Atlanta restaurant scene, but you’ll find plenty of its alums at 8Arm, the first installment in Angus Brown and Nhan Le’s planned mini empire on Ponce. It’s also one of the few places in the city serving creative fare from early morning to midnight. Stop by for coffee, pastries, and savory breakfast items starting at 8 a.m.; quiches, sandwiches, and salads for lunch; and a limited dinner menu of elegantly simple dishes from Brown himself. Soon, a patio bar will keep the place buzzing until 2:30 a.m. 710 Ponce de Leon Avenue, 470-875-5856
