1. Alici Oyster Bar

931 Monroe Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30308

For only the freshest oysters in Atlanta, head to newcomer Alici Oyster Bar, with Mediterranean cuisine inspired by the Amalfi Coast. The dining area is mega chic with upscale coastal vibes and plenty of natural light pouring in during the day time.  The handmade pasta is truly perfect, and there are plenty of ultra fresh crude options as well. 


2. Cereal and Cream

415 Memorial Dr SE Suite B, Atlanta, GA 30312

Cereal and Cream is cute, cute, cute! This pink Insta dream got its start as a mobile food truck, but now they’ve got a brick and mortar location on Memorial Drive. The cozy velvet chairs and gold and marble touches are just calling all the ladies with a sweet tooth to indulge. The ice cream is a little pricey at about $10 a pop, but the portions are generous and easy to share!

3. Humble Pie 

 1115 Howell Mill Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Humble Pie has opened up in West Midtown’s Interlock area from the team behind hits like Juniper Cafe and Lazy Betty. The interior are funky and fun, and we especially love their comfy seating lounge area that just invites you to sit there all day. Get adventures and dig into unique ‘zas like their baked potato pie, and their hearty appetizer options like the “Not So Humble” truffle fries and French Onion hand peas are pleasing to any palette. Love love!

4. Kupcakerie

717 Memorial Dr SE, Atlanta, GA 30316

This popular East Point spot has now opened a second location in Grant Park so in-town folks can access their scrumptious sweets more easily. Dig into decadent flavors like their cinnamon-cayenne spiced chocolate cupcake called “Hot & Bothered” or their crowd pleasing “Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding” cupcake (do be sure to consult their online menu if you’re going for a particular flavor, as not every flavor is offered every day of the week). They’re right by the new Supremo Taco location so pick them up for dessert after having a taco or two!

5. La Semilla 

780 Memorial Dr SE Unit 4A, Atlanta, GA 30316

Vegans and non-vegans alike, rejoice! This plant-based Latin restaurant (translating to “the seed” in English) has something delicious for you whether you are vegan or not. We’ve come a long way from black bean burgers. Seitan, jackfruit, and vegan queso all stand out as convincing substitutes, and the digs are perfectly stylish with some seriously cool Tulum vibes.

6. Ranger Station

684 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE Unit J, Atlanta, GA 30312

Everyone knows Ladybird is the Atlanta hangout when the weather is warm, but now they’ve expanded and added a whole new space upstairs with all the speakeasy vibes called Ranger Station. It’s dark and moody but with a cool 70s cabin feel to it as well.

7. Taste Wine Bar And Market

202 Chattahoochee Row NW Suite B, Atlanta, GA 30318

Ladies, you’re going to love this spot! Taste Wine Bar takes the beer tasting concept and instead puts delicious wines from all over the world into the mix. It’s perfect for anyone wanting to taste test and try a bunch of different bottles and learning more about wine. You can also pick out an accompanying charcuterie board, which is a bit pricey but comes with a hefty mix of delicious meats, cheeses, and accoutrements. 


8. Yeppa & Co

306 Buckhead Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30305

The owners behind hugely popular concepts Storico Fresco, Forza Storico, and Storico Vino keep cranking out Italian eatery after Italian eatery. The latest to open up is stunning Yeppa & Co in the former Biltong Bar space in Buckhead. While there a few familiar favorites on the menu here you can find at the Storico group’s other restaurants, the most exciting new addition at Yeppa has to be their focaccia focused menu items. They are serving up focaccia paninis, focaccia pizza, as well as a focaccia bread service if you just want a taste. We’re salivating just thinking about it. Give them a try!

9. Zakia

3699 Lenox Rd NE Ste 3, Atlanta, GA 30305

Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food is truly having a moment here in Atlanta, and Zakia is the latest place to open up and toss their hat into the ring. The interiors are elegant and regal feeling, and you can’t go wrong with their chicken kabob or beautifully and deliciously crafted cocktails! One thing to note is that the appetizers tend to be a bit on the smaller side if you’re in a group, so it may be worth doubling up your order or sharing them with a date. Also, your whole party must be present to be seated, so be sure to go with your punctual friends!
