An Italian market, eatery, wine bar, and culinary club called Bellina Alimentari will open in Ponce City Market’s Food Hall this spring or summer. At 4,000 square feet, it will inhabit the largest space in the food hall.

Alisa Barry’s handkerchief pasta with pork and fennel polpetinni

Barry’s take on spaghetti and meatballs (she calls them by their Italian name, polpettini) reinterprets her mother’s workaday staple. She freshens up a simple marinara with roasted cherry tomatoes and replaces noodles with wide rectangles of fresh pasta (available at Buckhead’s Storico Fresco).

Osteria Mattone

Announcing the next big culinary trend: Southern chefs embracing the cuisines of Italy. Yes! It’s officially a thing. And it isn’t such a wacky stretch, really. The two cultures share deep agrarian roots, and their most rewarding foods stem from humble origins and a mutual love of pork and vegetables.

BoccaLupo

The odd, angular bungalow on the southeastern corner of Edgewood Avenue and Waddell Street, on the fringe of Inman Park, has been a beacon of eccentricity for decades. Minus the back right corner that was carved out for a patio, the building is a near-perfect square.

Storico Fresco Uses Long-Lost Recipes for Novel Pastas

Think of Michael Patrick as a pasta scholar. A fascination with homemade noodles began during his South Florida childhood and grew into an obsession for obscure pastas made by vanishing Old World methods. A certified sommelier who worked in restaurants as well as wine education and journalism for two decades, Patrick spent six years traveling intermittently through villages all over Italy, learning from home cooks and culinary professionals, before starting his own small-scale production in a shared kitchen near Your DeKalb Farmers Market. The fanciful shapes, many with unique fillings, that he sells through his company, Storico Fresco, reveal more skillful attention than any other fresh pastas sold in Atlanta. He makes his products with little more than a rolling pin, small dowels, and a wooden comb called a pettine that creates ridges on, as one example, lumachelle—a tubular pasta infused with cinnamon and lemon zest that he traces to a recipe from Benedictine nuns in the province of Le Marche, east of Tuscany.

But what about quality midscale options—the casual haunts that won't decimate your credit line, where you can linger
