At Le Fat, Guy Wong’s new Vietnamese restaurant, the design, inspired by the French colonial era, hits you the minute you walk in. The vintage signs convey an ornate Eurasian elegance, and the two rooms are painted the cool colors (particularly a muted green with pops of red) you find where it’s hot.
You’d think the man would want a day off, but Ford Fry is about to open his ninth (yes, ninth) restaurant in Atlanta. Marcel, an old-school American steakhouse with French sensibilities, will open Monday on the Westside in the old Abattoir space, which Anne Quatrano closed in March

Not long ago, the area west of Howell Mill Road was a true industrial district, with just a couple of fabric stores to draw suburban shoppers.
Anthropologie’s bridal boutique, which has landed at the brand’s Westside location, is pronounced “beholden.” Okay, so the name may be fussy, but everything else about this shop-within-a-shop is laid-back.
Brash Coffee is opening its first Atlanta store on the Westside in early summer 2015. In 2011, owner Matt Ludwikowski was working at Octane and took a trip to El Salvador with one intention: work directly with coffee farmers to learn as much about coffee as he could. He practiced what he learned and, two years later, opened the first Brash Coffee store in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
It started with bud vases. But in just its second year, Courtney Hamill’s handmade ceramics line, Honeycomb Studio, has expanded into lighting.
