The offbeat Chick-fil-A concept restaurants you’ve never heard of
Until just recently I had no clue that Chick-fil-A owns two concept restaurants that serve completely different fare: Truett’s Pizza Cafe and Truett’s Luau. The family-style pizza joint and the Hawaiian-themed establishment (Chick-fil-Aloha, everybody!) are both in Fayetteville, both closed on Sundays, and both late-in-life pet projects of the entrepreneurial company founder.

Eat This: The General Muir’s Pastrami Sandwich
When chef Todd Ginsberg set out to open The General Muir in 2013, he wanted to create a restaurant that paid homage to the delis that he and his parents grew up dining at.

Discovery: Urban Cannibals
Transforming old storefronts into hopping neighborhood hangouts has been Calavino Donati’s life since she gave up being a jeweler and artist in the mid-1990s and moved to Atlanta. Urban Cannibals—a small bodega, bakery, and sandwich shop she opened a year ago with her life partner, singer-songwriter Doria Roberts—has the same scrappy sensibility as Calavino’s Roman Lily Cafe, which overlooked the walking path along Freedom Parkway and closed in 2006.
What are your favorite sandwich spots?
I’m on the hunt for outstanding sandwich spots of all types around the metro area—any favorites worth shouting out?
