Meat is back on the menu at Yeah! Burger
Ten-year-old Westside staple Yeah! Burger is reclaiming some of its original identity. The sustainably focused hamburger joint closed for renovations during the pandemic and reopened in November 2021 as an all-vegan restaurant.

Review: The Federal is chef Shaun Doty’s best venture yet
Shaun Doty is back in the kitchen again, and the only question you might have after dining at the Federal is, “What took so long?” Opening the Federal last November has been his greatest gift yet—to Atlanta and, perhaps, to himself.
King of Carbs: Rob Alexander is the reason your sandwich rocks

The burger as fetish
Growing up, I was terrified of my best friend’s grandmother, tiny but fierce with her shellacked black hair, penciled eyebrows, and penchant for telling us girls to “stand up straight.” When I confessed I had never eaten a burger at the Varsity, she declared my situation “un-American, un-Southern, and un-Christian.”
