Ramen: Jinya Ramen Bar
This sleek, stylish Los Angeles import delivers a blitz of tasty snacks like octopus balls, gyoza dumplings, caramelized cauliflower, and soft pork belly buns.
South Indian: Chennai Express Pure Veg-Indian
The interior isn’t much to look at, but it’s the beautiful Tamil cuisine that attracts diners from across the metro area.
First-Date Bar: Amer
It’s one thing to have a bar menu full of stunning, layered extravagances. It’s another to serve them in such effortlessly stylish, moody surroundings.
Pork Heaven: Porch Light Latin Kitchen
Chef Andre Gomez, like most Puerto Ricans, has a thing for pig: pork-filled sandwiches, roast suckling pig, and an unusual island specialty known as “can can pork,” a gigantic cut that resembles a crown roast and is marinated, grilled, then deep-fried for max crispness and rich taste.
Since opening last year, this restaurant has doubled in size to accommodate the crowds, who are drawn to Rui Liu's full-throttle Sichuan cooking.
Dim sum: Royal China
It may be an elderly stand-by in restaurant years, but this modest establishment boasts a seemingly endless menu of dumplings and savories that’s without equal in town.
Best-Kept Secret: Spring
Easily the best restaurant within miles of Marietta Square, this newcomer is worth a visit no matter which direction you’re driving from.
Oysters: Kimball House
Kimball House earns high marks for value (check out the happy hour for $1 to $2 oysters), unique drinks, and impeccable service, but what really fires up our Southern pride is the menu’s expanding selection of Gulf and lower Atlantic Coast oysters.
New Classic Steakhouse: 101 Steak
Vinings wins big with this top-notch establishment, where the service is thoughtful and considered, the cocktails are rich, and the meat is a cut above (especially at the relatively affordable prices).
Vegan: Herban Fix
Refined decor, gorgeous Asian-influenced dishes, and a team that understands that non-animal-eaters deserve more than bland slabs of fake meat make this upscale spot a hit with both hard-core vegans and the business lunch crowd.
