This Sandy Springs garden is “formal, not fussy”

Atlanta may be known as a city in a forest, but for gardeners, all those shady trees present a challenge. Back in 2009, when Suzy Smith and her husband, Ed, spotted this Sandy Springs home with a flat, sunny area, they were sold.

Tasty China II

When I think of Peter Cheng, I imagine him in his tall, white chef's hat, walking down the road alone like Bill Bixby in the old Incredible Hulk series, trailed by sad piano music as he moves from one kitchen to the next. Cheng, who last December set up shop in Atlanta for the second time in five years, has made inscrutability as much of a trademark as his arousing, incendiary Szechuan dishes.

Discovery: Cafe Posh

The size and presentation of Cafe Posh’s falafel are unmistakably Israeli. Shimon Edery, who owns this attractive, modern cafe with his wife, Simona, grinds soaked chickpeas with spices, herbs, and vegetables and shapes them into big, hunky croquettes. Fried in fresh oil, the falafel are sandwiched in soft, thick pita with a satisfying amount of hummus, tahini, roasted eggplant, diced tomatoes, cucumber, romaine lettuce, and a touch of homemade red pepper harissa or zehug—a green sauce made with herbs, fresh garlic, hot peppers, and extra virgin olive oil. They are a huge favorite of mine.

Discovery: Bishoku

Kimio Fukuya holds court most nights at Bishoku, the new Japanese restaurant started by his vivacious daughter, Jackie. Fukuya retired two years ago after selling his seminal restaurant Sushi Huku, a popular Japanese expat hangout known for its Osaka-style specialties. But his former sushi chef, Mickey-san, migrated to Bishoku, and many of his old drinking buddies join him for rounds of sake and hearty food in a dining room the exact color of green tea.
