In the course of a week, two beloved pizzerias (Ammazza Decatur, Nina & Rafi) and a revered Sichuan spot (Gu's Kitchen) each made a comeback of sorts. How do they stack up against the originals?
A look at 4 of Atlanta's newest restaurants, including Superica, Community Smith, Illegal Food, and Colletta.
Gu’s Bistro on Buford Highway closed last Friday faster than you could say “hot pot.” The move was sudden for Atlanta’s Sichuan darling—announced via email and on Facebook—and the reaction, not surprisingly, was one of tongue-numbing shock. Yesterday I met with Yvonne Gu and her husband, Zahed, in front of their new stall at Krog Street Market to ask why we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to Zhong-style dumplings and tea-smoked duck. The two stressed that the closing wasn’t a reaction to an emergency and that they’ve been thinking about moving to a new location for a while.
Trying foods from different cultures may actually help combat diet fatigue by introducing you to a wider variety of healthy options. Read on for ideas on what to order—and skip—at some of the city’s most popular international restaurants.
Gu’s Dumplings, an offshoot of Gu’s Bistro on Buford Highway, will open in Krog Street Market in September or October. The 600-square-foot market stall won’t have any seating. Instead, it’ll offer an abbreviated menu of ten or so primarily vegetarian dishes that can be eaten at the market tables or on the go.
At a media preview Tuesday afternoon, Kevin Ouzts of Spotted Trotter announced that his first restaurant, The Cockentrice, will open in the KSM market.
According to most of my Chinese friends, finding good dumplings in Atlanta is harder than scaling the Great Wall. They would rather make them on their own. One friend, though, was more optimistic than the rest. Chef Ken Lim, the owner at Penang Atlanta, has been eating dumplings for thirty years, and he offered to be my guide for the afternoon. Lim first came to Atlanta in 1996 to help his uncle open Penang, and just last year Lim returned to the city to takeover the family business.
