The Abby Singer

Got tickets to see the Van Gogh exhibit at Pratt-Pullman Yards? Then be sure to make a pit-stop beforehand at The Abby Singer, a new restaurant started by a couple of guys from the Midwest that’s full of downhome comfort food goodness. Their menu frequently changes, but some fun recently featured items include beer cheese tots, cheese curds, and the standout piece, the “Juicy Lucy,” a burger filled with gooey cheese in the middle. Check out the video above to see our Director of Digital Carbs Jorge and OJ the editor taking on the Juicy Lucy.

Chamblee is getting all the hot, new spots. A new Mexican restaurant and tequila/mezcal bar has just opened up from restaurateur Jesús Oñate, Jr. The menu features cuisine from different regions of Mexico and a standout dish, Molcajete El Monstruo, served in a volcanic rock mortar.

The Breakfast Boys

The dining scene in College Park is truly becoming something else. The Breakfast Boys is the newest addition to the neighborhood, putting their spin on brunch classics with items like jerk chicken & sweet potato waffles topped with apple cider syrup, pineapple upside down French toast, and salmon philly sliders.  

Cattle Shed Wine and Steak Bar

North Atlanta area folks, rejoice! Because there’s a hot, new restaurant to hit Alpharetta/Cumming. Their Head Chef, Colin McGowan, first got his chops working in some of Atlanta’s finest restaurants such as Bacchanalia, Restaurant Eugene and Kimball House. Now, he’s developed an inventive menu at Cattle Shed that’s part steakhouse, part something extra special. The salsa verde roasted half chicken is phenomenal and the Cattle Shed Burger is insane, with ground beef made using the steak trimmings from their steaks and topped with crispy shallots and gribiche on a housemade branded brioche bun.

Lucian Books and Wine

Lucian Books is a bookworm’s dream. Part bookstore, part restaurant, part cafe, in the daytime it’s an elegant place to shop for good reads while enjoying light bites and at a night, it’s a full-service restaurant with an extensive wine list and European menu items such as steak au poivre and an omelette with caviar and creme fraiche. 

Politan Row

Imagine all the convenience of a food hall but a swanky, luxurious interior. Politan Row is exactly that, with supple leather couches, velvet chairs, and ambient lighting. All the food offerings are wonderful, from super buzzy spot Pretty Little Taco to Caribbean spot Locale Cafe to the super filling vermicelli bowls at Bun Mi Grill. Grab a drink at the bar and enjoy a drink out on the patio–live music plays most weekend nights–or step into the tucked away JoJo’s Beloved Cocktail Lounge, with all the speakeasy vibes. Pour Taproom and The Establishment are also steps away if you want to continue the night.

Midtown folks rejoice because there are finally some awesome restaurant additions to the neighborhood. Everything’s inviting about the ambience of this place, from the patio filled with florals and greenery to the stunning bar to the dining room. Pastificio means pasta factory in Italian, and pasta certainly takes center stage on the menu, with delights like black truffle risotto and lobster mezzelune/ravioli featured. It’s right in the Colony Square complex, so grab a drink at Politan Row afterwards or at nearby cocktail bar The Establishment
