The best Sichuan restaurants in the metro area have always been OTP. Now come two new Sichuan options more proximate to intowners, which means many of us can more conveniently satiate our hot and numbing Sichuan desires.
It's been a while since something got me as excited as I was during my visit to Jusgo Supermarket, which took over a former Babies "R" Us in Duluth. The food court has several types of Chinese cuisine that are rare finds in Atlanta.
The new Chinese restaurant delivers excellent Sichuan cuisine ITP—supple wontons in chili oil, a signature chicken dish that resembles chicharrones, and a crispy blue crab worth digging your chopsticks into.
Brunch is a cult, really, a religion established by greedy restaurateurs who charge criminal prices for weak mimosas and mostly generic slop. Plus, why Atlantans should follow chef Ri Liu.
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.
