Bourbon is hot right now, and even Maker's Mark tried to dilute their stash to spread the wealth around. Whether you like your bourbon neat or on the rocks, these bars & restaurants always have plenty to go around
Kevin Rathbun surprised folks when he located in a warehouse setting in Inman Park but now its a standard bearer in the city. The menu runs the gamut & the sides are rich - in a good wat. Don't miss out on the banana peanut butter pie - my favorite dessert in the city
Known for the 10pm burger, the Nashville-style Hot Chicken is their next big thing. The cocktails are king but give the beer list a spin.
Atlanta has a plethora of fine Southern restaurants, and although new, M-U feels like it's been around forever. There would be riots if the farm egg in celery cream dish was dropped on the menu, featured recently on the Martha Stewart show.
Many Irish pubs give their stouts top billing, and although you'll find them here - whiskeys are king at Mac McGee's. Irish whiskeys, Scotch, bourbons and even Yamazaki from Japan attract whiskey enthusiasts from all over town
James Beard winner Hugh Acheson's Atlanta outpost is a Midtown favorite & its menu changes daily. I'm a fan of the superfood plate at lunch and you never know what will be on the dinner menu. The wine & cocktail program are killer & don't forget to leave room for dessert
Short on cash? At brunch order a Bloody Mary & get a bonus sidecar of local brew Sweetwater 420
Tucked into Inman Park you'll find a wildly creative menu by culinary rebel Robert Phalen. From offal to octopus, the choice is yours.
A great selection of local beers ( try the Jailhouse Red) and fun pub style food in beautiful Morningside.
