CBD products are popping up everywhere, including coffees, teas, and cocktails here in Atlanta. The hemp-derived substance won't get you high, but some swear by it for relaxation, or just as a fun, new drink ingredient.
There are many reasons to go to Athens—one of the main ones is its amazing food and bar scene. Plus: in the course of navigating the notoriously touchy-feely people of the restaurant industry, there is only one move that makes me uncomfortable: the bartender handshake.
Drink hundreds of different beers and wines at West End's Boxcar, get an incredible taste of a high-end menu at Ron Hsu's Lazy Betty in Candler Park, and stuff yourself with Anne Quatrano's brunch options at Pancake Social in Ponce City Market.
“We pride ourselves on having a balanced cocktail [menu],” says Kristin Koefod, who developed the drink list. “We have something for your grandmother who likes her Manhattan every day at 5 p.m., for your craft cocktail enthusiast, and for your friend who is overwhelmed by the menu but knows she likes vodka soda.”
Atlanta will be the first city in the world to experience a glow-in-the-dark ramen restaurant before it heads out on a global tour. Nakamura.ke, an immersive pop-up dining experience from an international team of artists (including Atlanta’s own Zoo as Zoo and Dashboard), debuts on January 30 and runs on select dates through February 16.
Located in Piedmont Heights in the old Anchor Bar & Tattoo space, Little Rey will offer tacos (including breakfast tacos), salads, and chicken al carbon, ordered at the counter or picked up at a take-out window.
Atlanta is a melting pot of different cultures' cuisines—and that's a good thing. The problem is the restaurants where I most want to eat are getting farther and farther away. Also: Feedel Bistro—and Ethiopian food—is for everyone.
Lazy Betty specializes in the thrill of high-end sensory delights—at an equally high price tag.
