Chamblee

5 reasons to love Chamblee

With residents hailing from around the world, Chamblee is one of Georgia’s most multicultural communities, and it continues to grow. Restaurateur Mike Plummer takes us on a tour.

The French Paradox

French cartoon master Jean-Jacques Sempé, whose big-nosed, slightly bewildered characters often appear on the cover of the New Yorker, once drew two old men wearing berets and riding rickety bicycles with string bags of identical long baguettes hanging from the crossbars. I remember that each man sported a little mustache and a limp cigarette dangling from a mouth set in a sour expression. The absurd caption—“We are becoming more and more American every day”—made me laugh out loud.

A visit to Maison Robert’s new location

While driving around the Chamblee area doing research for our April Cheap Eats issue, I was struck with a craving for the chocolate-covered coconut macaroons at Maison Robert. I drove by the old location on North Peachtree off Peachtree Industrial and panicked—the sweet little house that formerly housed the business was empty. A quick iPhone search revealed I was out of touch: Last July, the business a moved a five-minute drive away to 5256 Peachtree Road, in a new building among the older shops in historic Chamblee.
