Vegetable Plate: Miller Union

No dish captures the genius of Steven Satterfield quite like this unassuming veg plate. Summer finds include lima beans and corn cooked in cream and scented with tarragon, served alongside chunky, crisp fingers of fried okra that snap and crunch like green beans.
Busy Bee

Fried Chicken: Busy Bee

The intoxicating aroma of this soul food institution’s signature dish hits you before you’re even halfway to the front door. With a featherlight crust that flakes onto the table and into your lap, and flesh as juicy as potlikker, this chicken is as hallowed as the restaurant itself, which opened in 1947.

Beauty Store: Woo Skincare + Cosmetics

Inside this local shop’s two Atlanta locations (the second opened this year on West Paces Ferry), find an irresistible array of top-notch beauty products, like pricey creams by La Mer and bright Nars lip pencils.

Dish for Two: Chuletón at Cooks & Soldiers

The best steak we tasted all year was this dry-aged, bone-in ribeye weighing in at a heart-stopping 2.2 pounds. Served with a Tempranillo bordelaise sauce, the hunk arrives with a crusty, smoky sear and meat so velvety that it might as well be custard.
