CONCIERGE CORNER When visitors come to the city, it’s a good bet to find out what to see and do from our knowledgeable concierge friends. Donny Ballard, Concierge at Westin Peachtree Plaza, gives us his tips. I was born in Atlanta and I am honored to be a concierge here at the Westin Peachtree Plaza. I am honored to be a member of the Concierge Society of Atlanta and love what I do. I love telling my guests to visit ... The Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park. This is a true treasure here in Atlanta. While visiting here, you are able to see the gravesite of Dr. and Mrs. King. Every time I am standing in front of the tombs, I am reminded just how much Dr. King did for the world and how much he accomplished until his death at 39 years old. One of my favorite dining options is… Our very own Sun Dial Restaurant here at the Westin Peachtree Plaza. Situated on the uppermost floors, the views are amazing! This is a distinct Atlanta dining experience that makes the most of the city’s proximity to local, farm-to-table ingredients. The Sun Dial features an upscale restaurant, a cocktail lounge and an observatory level. One of my favorite meals here is the shrimp and grits.
Enjoy also the Mose Davis Trio every Wednesday & Thursday evening from 7-11 p.m. Mose is a former member of The Counts and has performed nationwide for more than 30 years. This jazz trio is simply amazing. I tell my guests to shop ... I love to recommend to my guests to shop, play and have fun at Little Five Points. Little Five Points is surrounded by the neighborhoods of Inman Park, Edgewood, Candler Park, Lake Claire and Poncey-Highland. Little Five Points is such a unique area to visit while in Atlanta. You could spend an hour or all day at this amazing place. Every year, we have the Little Five Points Halloween Parade, which will be on October 20 this year. This is so much fun and you just never know who or what you may see.

Rooftop Patio at Gypsy Kitchen
UP ON THE ROOF Take in the cooler fall temperatures as you survey the city skyline perched on a rooftop patio. BY LIESL MERKEL AND LAURA SCHOLZ
The stunning rooftop patio at Gypsy Kitchen can be found in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, and is as vibrant as the restaurant’s Spanish- and Moroccan-inspired cuisine. Settle in for gentle breezes and views of the busy Buckhead skyline with a charcuterie & cheese board or Embutidos like jamon iberico, sobrassada and chorizo. Share a few tapas – grilled spanish octopus and whipped goat cheese with preserved mushrooms and cashews are good choices to accompany cocktails like the Spice Trader with Elijah Craig Small Batch bourbon, ginger beer, lime, honey, apricot and cayenne. While open nightly for dinner starting at 5 p.m., the restaurant also has a special late menu with munchies like chicken croquetas and poutine. The real draw is Basque in the Sun Sundays, where you can enjoy paella on the patio, a live flamenco guitarist, half off select bottles of wine and $6 glasses of rosé. www.gypsykitchenatl.com
5Church Atlanta, an outpost of the Charlottebased restaurant, serves New American food in a contemporary decor. Step inside this Midtown locale and you’ll find glittering chandeliers and large paintings created by local artists, setting a neo-Victorian tone for the dining room. Hop up on the contemporary rooftop patio for a starter of ahi tuna poke and nighttime views of the Midtown sky. Breathe in the upbeat vibe while sipping signature cocktails such as Holy WaterFour Roses Bourbon, sweet tea, blue agave, blackberries and mint. Known for steaks, the restaurant’s “60 Second” Prime New York Steak– seared only on one side and cooked until the rest of the steak meets a medium rare temperature – and the Lamb Porterhouse are tops for steak lovers. Coastal influences such as shrimp and grits and a comforting Short Rib Pappardelle will satisfy. 5Church features rotating DJs playing a blend of top hits and Latin beats from 8 p.m. – 12 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. www.5churchatlanta.com
NEW REALM BREWING COMPANY The Atlanta BeltLine has produced many top dining destinations and hangouts, and recently New Realm Brewing Company was added to the docket, right down the road from Ponce City Market. Watch the sun set from the rooftop patio and start out sampling one of the brewery’s beers that includes several IPAs, Euphonia Pilsner and Perun Pale Ale. A rotating batch of German-style beers will also be on tap in September and October featuring a Kölsch, a Hefeweizen and a Märzen. Head to the rooftop patio and order a few bites like BBQ Shrimp Open Faced Tacos, crispy corned beef egg rolls, Spicy Korean pork cheek buns or Georgia peanut hummus. Then, share a wood fired pizza with the crew and save some room for Campfire S’mores. Tours are offered on a walk-in basis every hour, and the rooftop is open at 5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 11 a.m. Thursday-Saturday, and 12 p.m. on Sunday. www.newrealmbrewing.com

cheddar cornbread and pickled jalapeno butter or Springer Mountain chicken with black-eyed pea ragout, tomato relish and grilled romaine.

This once popular 1924 motor lodge has reclaimed its coveted place on Ponce de Leon Avenue. Hotel Clermont recently reopened after an extensive renovation to reveal a boutique, retro establishment that remembers its roots. With its motto “Where anything goes and everyone’s welcome,” that leaves a lot of space for interpretation, and fun. Food and drink are a large part of the Hotel Clermont experience, and Tiny Lou’s, a French-American brasserie with Southern influence, dishes out an upbeat vibe with the French-focused wine list and swinging cocktails. Will it be Vidalia Onion Soup or a plate of Burgundy Snails for a starter? You might dig the Pomme Frites and a double stacked Clermont Burger. Watch your worries melt on The Roof Top, offering views of the vibrant lights and buzz of the city. Get your kicks while kicking back on the throwback furniture, astroturf underneath, with a swank beverage. Downstairs, The Lobby Bar with its bourbon-heavy offerings and small bites from Tiny Lou’s will beckon for visitation before or after a night on the town. The next morning, Cafe Clermont’s Revelator coffee will revive.

FANTASTIC SPOTS FOR FRIED CHICKEN Fried chicken is undeniably Southern and Atlanta’s love for this hot and tasty legacy is experienced best at these restaurants. Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken – Gus’s hails from Memphis. Lucky for Atlantans, Gus’s Fried Chicken decided to open up in Atlanta with crispy, spicy and juicy fried chicken. Find it downtown in the Peachtree Center Mall food court. JCT. Kitchen – JCT. Kitchen has been a mainstay for incredible fried chicken since its opening in 2007 by chef and restaurateur Ford Fry. The Westside hot spot for Southern cuisine has become such a favorite for fried chicken that they’re filling buckets of it every first Sunday in the month for Fried Chicken & Oyster Sundays at the JCT. Bar. Paschal’s – What began as a small 30-seat lunch restaurant has transformed into a beautiful restaurant with a rich history, making its home in Castleberry Hill. Its signature dish, available since 1947, and the most popular, comes with a leg, wing and chicken breast.
Watershed – It takes a whole three days to make this delish dish. A half chicken is brined, soaked in buttermilk, coated with flour and spices, and fried. It’s served with a side of biscuits, of course. You’ll have to plan accordingly if you want it, though. It’s only available on Wednesdays and sells out quickly.
HORSERADISH GRILL ENJOY ExquisiTE PATiO DiNiNg
Sway – Unlike many Southern restaurants that serve fried chicken, the version at Sway at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, comes with a breast, leg and thigh. The dish is so big that it is served in its own skillet. Brined for 24 hours, it’s such a customer favorite that Sway is going to start selling it at the market in the hotel, which offers foods to go. Hop’s Chicken – This Ponce City Market stall is easily noticeable from the long line of people wrapped around to get a bite of this tasty inclusion into the Atlanta fried chicken scene. Hop’s Chicken from James Beard Award-winning chef Linton Hopkins was one of the first Atlanta restaurants to dabble in the hot chicken craze and it’s paid off heavily with droves of hungry patrons wanting the hot and spicy fried chicken iteration. Mary Mac’s – Super friendly service is one of the reasons that Mary Mac’s has remained popular for so many years. Fried chicken is one of the customer favorites. South City Kitchen – The Springer Mountain Farms Fried Chicken comes with collard greens, red bliss potatoes and honeythyme jus. Tupelo Honey Café – Tupelo Honey’s southern favorites are served up in a funky décor complete with fancy cocktails and friendly service. Fried chicken breast is a signature item. Chick-a-Biddy – Looking for a delicious gluten-free fried chicken? Check out this spot for tasty fried chicken. Get the braised Brussels sprouts side dish, too. White Oak Kitchen and Cocktails – Chef Todd Richards serves up some tasty Springer Mountain Farms Chicken with his classic recipe. Perfect for entertaining your out-of-town guests, the restaurant is centrally located Downtown. -Malika Bowling

ONE-OF-A-KIND ATLANTA STORES Every savvy shopper loves to find one-of-a-kind stores. Atlanta is home to several, ranging from Paris on Ponce, a huge warehouse filled with antiques and vintage merchandise, to Huff Harrington Home, which will even sell you a buying trip to Paris. BY CAROL CARTER BUNGALOW CLASSIC Find it on Atlanta’s hip and trendy Westside. Discover new and antique home furnishings that include mirrors, rugs, pillows, furniture and fine art. Light up your life with table lamps by Pagoda, Sofia, Adrien and more. Keep your smart shopper’s eye out for the Bungalow’s selection of furniture made with reclaimed materials. Feel like splurging? Consider an elm, plank-top coffee table, circa 1860. A vintage Anatolian Isparta rug would be a nice landing spot for the coffee table. Perfect for the tabletop is a limited edition Cire Trudon candle by Yaz Bukey. Where is it? In West Midtown at 1197 Howell Mill Road www.bungalowclassic.com
HOUSE OF WALLACE If it’s trendy yet classic, and, yes,
affordable, women’s clothes you want, stop in at House of Wallace. Even with decidedly classic profiles, there’s always that little something extra that gives each blouse or top a touch of attitude. A simple white shirt turns eye-catching with its zip front. A long-sleeve pullover carrying the message, “Is it too early to spike my coffee?” dives into a deep “V” on the back, where it laces up. A Coda linen crop top takes a flirty turn when paired with Ashley Nicole shorts. A Paradise skirt hovers just above the knees in the front and dips just below the knees in the back. Where is it? In Buckhead’s Andrews Square at 56 East Andrews Drive www.houseofwallace1985.com
matter, you may never return since, among everything else at Huff Harrington, this popular Atlanta retailer offer trips. Two options coming up this fall are a buying trip to Paris and a painting trip in Provence. If you’d rather not travel to France to paint, you may shop Huff Harrington’s impressive selection of fine art. In addition to these unusual retail offerings, Huff Harrington carries accessories for men, women and even babies. For men, choose from Lazyjack Press neckties, bow ties and socks. Or, surprise a man in your life with a Daniel Wellington watch. Among women’s accessories find jewelry, Viva clutches and Perla macramé totes. For the baby on your list, consider a Mademoiselle Blanche doll. There’s décor, furniture, tableware, jewelry and even design help. Picture your dining room table dressed in a set of Arte Italica Burano dinner plates. For your dinner party, you could wear a pair of Julie Vos Isabel gemstone earrings. Where is it? In Buckhead at 3872 Roswell Road www.huffharrington.com
HUFF HARRINGTON HOME
PARIS ON PONCE
You’d best plan to stay awhile if you’re headed to Huff Harrington Home. For that
If a shopping adventure is more your style, then take a stroll on the eclectic side at Paris
on Ponce. Several dozen curators, collectors and designers show their mostly vintage furniture and décor in nearly 50,000 square feet of warehouse fun. The folks at Paris on Ponce call it the “warehouse of dreams.” So, go ahead, dream on. Bring your impulsive side when you shop here because this place is packed with items that you won’t be able to live without once you find them. Where is it? In Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward at 716 Ponce de Leon Place www.parisonponce.com
PERIDOT Lucky for shoppers, Peridot operates two Atlanta stores, one in Buckhead and one on the Westside. Be forewarned though: This is one of those stores where the décor is so inviting, you may wish to stay, as in, “Hmmm, could I move in here?” There’s a whole lot to take in, but that’s why you shop. There’s furniture – ottomans, benches, tables, chairs; there’s fine art and vintage photography; there are decorative items like mirrors and baskets. You’ll find purses, jewelry, candles and so much more. The newer Westside store is not only bigger than the flagship location in Buckhead,
but it also carries a “design vibe” found in a wider range of furniture and linens. Indeed, Atlanta’s Westside has a reputation as the city’s design district so the new Peridot West fits right in. Where is it? The Buckhead store resides at 3193 Roswell Road. Peridot West is in the Westside Provisions District at 1183 Howell Mill Road. www.simplyperidot.com
RANGE BOUTIQUE If you find something you like at Range Boutique, snap it up because it won’t be there for long. That’s because the owner, every four to six weeks, curates a new selection of dresses, tops and tees. The Range features mostly Los Angeles-based designers intermixed with local Atlanta designers, which may be why the store describes its merchandise as California Southern Style. Range is an exclusive carrier of the majority of the labels on its racks, and stocks only limited quantities of each item. Among jewelry finds are Ingrid Ysla earrings triple hoop earrings made in Ysla’s Atlanta studio. Two notable customers are Marisa Tomei and Sheryl Crow. Now, that’s good company.

14TH STREET ANTIQUES AND MODERN HOME Take a stroll through three stories packed with 19th and 20th century antiques, midcentury modern classics and even the latest in “High Design.” Browse an extensive selection of antique and contemporary art as well as antique and new lighting in the south’s largest curated group shop. Other finds include vintage handbags, jewelry, rugs, mirrors, furniture and accessories. With Atlanta being a desirable filming location, it’s no surprise that this West Midtown gem is a popular resource for set designers. “The Originals” TV series, “Devious Maids,” Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots,” “The Walking Dead,” “Hunger Games” and “Mother’s Day” are among the movies and TV series that find inspiration here. Where is it? 530 14th Street in West Midtown www.14thstreetantiques.com

OUTLET SHOPPES AT ATLANTA
OUTLET SHOPPES AT ATLANTA
Travel up Interstate 75 North and exit at Interstate 575, where you’ll find the Outlet Shoppes at exit 9, right off the highway. The Levis Outlet is a favorite as is Columbia Factory Store, Steve Madden and, oh yes, Ghirardelli Chocolate. Even though shopping here is an outdoor experience, most of the walkways have roofs, so you can shop (and sing) in the rain. Get a milkshake to go with your burger at Johnny Rockets, and top it off with a chocolate chipper at Great American Cookies. Insider tip: In general, savings here add up to 20 to 70 percent off retail. www.theoutletshoppesatatlanta.com
