Pinky Cole is hard at work on her newest restaurant, a breakfast spot called the Morning After. Located in the former Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand (881 Marietta Street) on the Westside, the Morning After promises the same cheeky branding of its sister spot with a vegan take on the first meal of the day.
Jonesboro is enjoying a downtown renaissance, like many other small cities. New restaurants, residential projects, art venues and galleries, and even a water park are helping make the town into a destination. It also benefits from proximity to Clayton State University in nearby Morrow.
West End was named in the 1860s after London’s famed theater district. Connected to downtown by horse-drawn streetcars, the suburb soon attracted affluent residents, including mayors, a governor, business owners, and Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus tales. Though the neighborhood experienced white flight during the mid-20th century, it has long benefited from its proximity to the Atlanta University Center—drawing prominent residents like Dr. O.T. Hammonds, whose grand Victorian home is now an art museum. In recent years, the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail has brought new development—such as the sprawling Lee + White complex—along with the mixed benefits of gentrification. Through it all, strong local leadership has ensured that the “Best End” keeps its sights on the future.
West End led the way in serving practitioners of plant-based eating in Atlanta, connected to—but also distinct from—the contemporary popularity of vegetarian and vegan restaurants here today. In one way, the devotion of customers to these businesses helped the neighborhood circulate community dollars, which paved the way for such hot spots as Slutty Vegan.
In sectors from technology to food service, entrepreneurs are making it work. Here, five of them, including Bem Joiner of Atlanta Influences Everything and Pinky Cole of Slutty Vegan, discuss what's next for Atlanta.
In the name of journalism, I attempted to eat five Evergreen Sunday cheeseburgers. I tweeted about each experience. This is a look back at those burgers and tweets.
Bar Vegan takes the bold, attention-grabbing, fun-forward, and vegan facets of Cole’s original burger concept and applies them to the bar scene.
The food you’ll find at these places is affordable, varied, and fun—as good a mix (albeit a much abbreviated one) as you could hope for in normal times.
