Hugh’s list of places to eat and whatnot in Atlanta
Empire State South
yeah, it’s my place. Great breakfast, lunch and dinner. Awesome coffee program.
I think this is some of the best pizza I have ever had. Amazeballs.
Midtown middle Eastern place. Good lunch. Hummus, shawarma, that kind of thing. Really great cheap lunch.
One Eared Stag
Modern Southern, kind of punk rock place.
It’s a haul. Way up Buford Hwy but it’s great Szechuan food.
Leon’s Full Service
Fantastic drink spot. Good food. Decatur.
East Atlanta late night foodie palooza. Angus, the chef, is a very cool guy.
Holman & Finch
The best gastropub around. Stellar drinks and great food.
Westside. Great food but best known for a really fancy burger at lunch.
the General Muir
Ode to the Jewish Deli by Todd Ginsberg. Smart chef.
Octane, Westside and also on Memorial (Octane at the Jane).
Coffee coffee coffee. Serious coffee. Nice place to get some work done and get wired on great espresso.
Bruce Logue’s homage to Italy. Less expensive than it should be.
Great BBQ in Decatur.
Cakes & Ale
Farm to Table stuff. Great food. Decatur.
Vietnamese. Really tasty. Norcross… so it’s a drive.
Ramen at lunch and fancier fare at dinner. Guy Wong does Japanese really well.
