Best of Atlanta 2015

Tacos: Chicago Supermarket

Hand-pressed, freshly ground masa dough, vibrant salsas, and tender meat spell the difference between good and great tacos. At this hopping grocer-taqueria, lingua (tongue), cabeza (head meat), and goat come straight from the butcher counter in the back.

Daring Meal: Parts Menu at Holeman and Finch Public House

The offal at Linton Hopkins’s gastropub may daunt even the most red in tooth. But muster up the nerve and you’ll be rewarded with delicate veal brains cooked in black butter and capers, lightly fried lamb testicles, and Ossabaw hog head cheese.
Queen of Cream

New Ice Cream: Queen of Cream

Cora Cotrim’s charming ice cream carts still show up at farmers markets, but now you can find her every day in a brick-and-mortar parlor in the Old Fourth Ward.

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.
La Fonda

Personal Endorsement: Chicken Tacos at La Fonda Latina

La Fonda Latina is not the city’s best Mexican restaurant—or even the second best. But the Westside location is the closest restaurant to my couch.

Grocery Store Bakery: Buford Highway Farmers Market

Russians, Croatians, Ukrainians, Mexicans, and Colombians—they all flock here to shop for the breads of their native countries.
Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall

Hipster Hangout: Ladybird Grove and Mess Hall

The base camp for the bearded, tattooed masses is this rustic watering hole on the Atlanta BeltLine. That’s not a knock against the place—more like a dress code alert, so you don’t saunter in sporting Vineyard Vines or Jimmy Choos.
Savory Pies

Savory Pies: Panbury’s

Inside Sweet Auburn Curb Market, a young couple from South Africa turn out savory hand-held meat pies, samosas, and sausage rolls.
Xocolatl

New Chocolate Shop: Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate

Wander around Krog Street Market and it won’t take long for your nostrils to encounter the heavenly work of this craft chocolatier. Bar flavors rotate frequently, but recent favorites included Oh Nuts!, with roasted almonds and vanilla-infused sea salt.

OTP Bakery: Alon’s Bakery & Market

Those who shop at Alon Balshan’s submarine of a store in Morningside might be surprised by the scale of his supersized Dunwoody outpost near Perimeter Mall.
