One of East Atlanta Village’s most written about restaurants – and for good reason – Banshee chef and partner Nolan Wynn has been James Beard Recognized for this upscale restaurant in a relaxed atmosphere. If you haven’t had the pepperoni butter, it’s what they may be most famous for, but every dish on the menu is worth trying. The cocktails are as inventive as the food and the bar is open late, so it’s worth heading for a night out even if you’ve already had your dinner!
467 Flat Shoals Ave Se Atlanta, Ga 30316
Every great neighborhood should have a good Thai and sushi restaurant and they both come from one place in East Atlanta Village at EAV Thai and sushi. The sushi is solid, but they really shine with their Thai dishes like the Tofu and Veggie Pad Thai, Bangkok Fried Rice and Basil Chicken Thai Style.
1257A Glenwood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316
Atlanta’s best bagels are in East Atlanta Village’s Emerald City Bagels. Mother daughter duo Deanna and Jackie Halcrow took their knowledge of New Jersey bagels and opened the doors in 2018. Now, you can’t go without seeing a line out the door and for good reason – every bagel they make is worth the wait. The motif is a 50’s style restaurant so they have egg creams and seltzers with house made syrups – give those a try when you visit!
520 Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, Georgia 30316
If there’s a bar with the biggest rock n’ roll vibes in EAV, it has to be Flatiron. The upstairs bar is full of patrons on the weekend playing pool and darts, but they’re all grabbing something to eat downstairs first. Flatiron has a great menu with creative options like the Spicy Garlic Butter shrimp roll, puff pastry chicken pot pie, and a jalapeño chili Mac n cheese bowl on their late night menu that’s eye rollingly good.
1314 Glenwood Ave, SE. Atlanta, GA. 30316
A sunny taco stand with a lovely umbrella filled patio, they focus on great Tacos with proteins like skirt steak, braised pork belly, mahi mahi, gulf shrimp, pork shoulder and chorizo. Don’t sleep on the dinner entrees, like Chimichangas, enchiladas and carne asada, along with a fantastic cocktail menu (great for drinking on that patio) with multiple margaritas, horchata, and a variety of tequila options.
552 Flat Shoals Ave SE Atlanta GA 30316
This may be the best sports bar in East Atlanta Village with tons of tv’s and fans of Atlanta United, the Falcons and Bulldogs filling the tables on Saturdays and Sundays. They’ve got GREAT burgers, like the Frita with hash browns, bacon and a sunny side up egg, the Ooey Gooey with pico, nacho cheese and crushed Doritos, and an unreal Doritos look nachos dish with your choice of protein.
1245 Glenwood Ave SE SUITE 6, Atlanta, GA 30316
Our first location on this list that is actually multiple locations in one, the Southern Feedstore food hall is a relative newcomer to the area, operating out of the old Graveyard Tavern space. They currently house Waffle Bar Chicken and Waffles, TKO, Woody’s Cheesesteaks and Buteco, a Brazilian coffeeshop and bar. Unlike most food halls, Southern Feedstore’s mostly alive at night, with a stage for live music and DJ sets, and a great crowd that’s always up for a dance.
Buteco is an excellent Brazilian inspired coffeeshop and bar – which means you HAVE to order a caipirinha.
For great Korean style street food, look no further than TKO – The Korean One. Try their panic fried cheese dog or the Korean Fried Chicken nuggets for your first bite.
Southern Feedstore is worth visiting for this kiosk alone. With a made for Instagram menu, they have sweet and savory waffles with everything from S’mores and Cinnamon Toast Crunch to Jalapeño Cheddar and Spinach Parm. Don’t sleep on their Nashville Hot Chicken sandwich either – it’s one of ATL’s best.
Known throughout Atlanta for delivering no frills, solid cheesesteaks, they have a location that delivers their regular consistent goodness inside Southern Feedstore.
560 Gresham Ave Atlanta, GA 30316
In a place as cool as East Atlanta Village, you’d think they have some good pho. Thanks to So Ba Vietnamese, folks in EAV do. They offer phos with a variety of proteins, in addition to rice vermicelli noodle dishes and jasmine rice dishes. On a cold day, you’ll see lots of folks ordering pho and warming up at So Ba Vietnamese.
488 Flat Shoals Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30316
One of Atlanta’s best venues to watch live music, the Earl also has a menu with great sandwiches and bar snacks. Get everything from a Philly to a Po Boy to a Patty Melt, along with snacks like Nachos, boiled peanuts and chicharrones. Come for dinner and stay for a show with the EAV cool kids.

Some places don’t need a lot of explanation and that’s the case with Wing Bar, where they make no frills, really good wings. Choose traditional favorites like buffalo, lemon pepper and garlic parmesan, or get adventurous with flavors like Agave BBQ, Old Bay, Sweet Chili and Wing Bar Mambo Sauce.
479-b Flat Shoals Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30316
We Suki Suki, a Global Grub collective, is the other food hall in East Atlanta Village and maybe one of the City’s most modest, with little to no seating inside the space. It doesn’t really matter, since the food options in each stall are so startlingly good.
They’ve expanded to the Battery, but they started at We Suki Suki with some of the best ramen bowls you can find in Atlanta. And they’re still there.
If you love Jen Chan’s in Cabbagetown, they’ve expanded to deliver their offerings out of We Suki Suki. You can find favorites like the Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese, the Miso Donut and Donut Hole, lasagna, pot pie and more.
Famous for their sushi burritos, you can find something creative – and raw – at poke burri year round.
You can find great Vietnamese food at this stall, including pho, bobas, banh baos and more.
Based out of Buford Highway, this Ethiopian kitchen has a stall at We Suki Suki, offering delicious steak, chicken and veggie options.
We Suki Suki – Smack’n Asian Cajun Nation
Pan Asian street food with a cajun kick is what you’ll find at this stall, including Thai basil fried rice, blackened shrimp fries, a po boy with kimchi collard greens, and the Smack – N- Mein – a Beef cup o noodles with cajun braised chuck roast, hard boiled egg, green onions and cilantro.
