1. Talat Market

Talat Market started out as a pop-up that had foodies all over Atlanta obsessed, but now they have their very own brick and mortar restaurant in the Downtown / Summerhill neighborhood. They’re serving a takeout menu only at this time, but their food tastes just as delicious at home.  There’s a lot more to their takeout menu than your typical Pad Thai and Panang curry. Try the the always comforting Thai dish, Jok, a type of rice porridge that Thai people especially love to enjoy at breakfast or their Kor Moo Yang, a very addicting BBQ pork dish that mixes savory with sweet. Available for pick-up!

7. Grana

Grana has definitely been one of our most anticipated restaurant openings, and they finally opened up shop in March. Started by Executive Chef Pat Pascarella, who also brought us The White Bull in Decatur, Grana is serving up wood-fired Neopalitan pies, handcrafted pastas, and other Italian specialities “directly inspired by the robust southern Italian cooking” of his mother and grandmother, which is why things are kept simple, and classics are left untouched.”
