First up is Antico Pizza in West Midtown, the highest rated Pizza establishment in America according to Zagat with a 28/30. Giovanni di Palma oversees making pies the way they do in the old country — with ingredients shipped in from Italy, and techniques that remain true to the Italian laws of pizza-making, set out by the Association Verace Pizza Napoletana.
After that we visit Smyrna’s Heirloom Market BBQ, where Chef Ji-Yeon and Chef Cody have been wowing critics from coast to coast with some of the best barbecue you’ll find anywhere — and you’ve never had ‘cue with a Korean twist like this!
Finally we head to Woodfire Grill on Cheshire Bridge Road. Chef Tyler Williams has won accolades for his work at Bacchanalia and Abattoir over the last coupe of years, and now he’s been united with Creative Loafing’s Best Service winning restaurant. Together they’re making Woodfire’s tasting menus the talk of the town.
