YOUR NEW NEIGHBORHOOD JOINT

Whenever anyone opens a restaurant, the focus tends to be on the food and decor. Mark Nelson, general manager of Hobnob Tavern, which opened its second location in Town Brookhaven in July, said there was another major factor they considered: a sense of community.

Here, Nelson explains why having patrons feel at home was just as important as what was being served.

Your owner, Sean Yeremyan, has said […]

A sampling of great eats in and around Buckhead.

Classic bistro dishes such as steak frites tantalize diners’ taste buds at F&B.

ANIS CAFÉ & BISTRO

Anis is everything you’d hope to find in a French bistro, without having to buy a plane ticket to France: traditional Provençal dishes, relaxed patio dining and often a small congregation of French-speaking diners to help set the mood. Grilled […]

LOVE AT FIRST BITE

F&B executive chef Gabriel Capo Camargo fell into cooking for all the wrong reasons.

This is not your typical boy meets girl story. When he was 16 years old, Gabriel Capo Camargo met a friend of his sister’s who worked as a chef. “She told me being a chef was a good job, that you could travel and cook and meet people,” says Camargo, now 34 and […]

THAI SPLENDOR

Peek gai tod—Thai-style chicken—and the bonus accompaniments are a must try at Bangkok Station.

POP THE TOP

No need for bar tools with these canned cocktails.

First came canned beer, and then canned wine. Now cocktails in a can have hit the scene for those seeking something perhaps a little stronger or a little more sophisticated at those backyard barbecues and autumn tailgating parties. Because, hey, not everyone is a beer drinker. These premade drinks encased in aluminum allow you to enjoy a blended […]

SOUTHERN COMFORT

The Southern Gentleman delivers on gentility and gourmet eats

Springer Mountain fried chicken with dreamy classic sides is a handsdown winner.

Knowing that The Southern Gentleman (TSG) lives up to its name is about the greatest comfort one can hope for in these times of political divisiveness, doublespeak and distressing headlines. TSG is not fake news. It is the real deal, boasting terrific, fairly priced […]

LAST CHANCE SUMMER

If, like us, you’re big fans of Yebo Beach Haus, you’re running out of time to enjoy the Buckhead eatery’s summer inspired menu.

Yebo’s summer-only coconut ceviche.

That’s because in November, Yebo will close for a few days while the staff transforms its decor and dishes once again to create Yebo Ski Haus, so that guests can dine on winter-focused foods throughout the cold months. […]
