CHILL ON ATLANTA BELTLINE’S NEW WESTSIDE TRAIL Atlanta BeltLine, a redevelopment project based on historic railroad corridors, continues to evolve and will ultimately connect 45 of Atlanta’s intown neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of trails and parks. While the popular Eastside Trail draws crowds to its restaurants, retail, events and activities, the Westside Trail is rapidly becoming a destination for families and visitors enjoying Atlanta’s Westside neighborhoods and parks since its completion in September 2017. Visitors looking for a less crowded BeltLine experience will be pleasantly surprised when navigating at the Westside Trail. The three-mile span begins at Washington Park and Lena Street to the north, meanders through residential neighborhoods including Capitol View, Mozely Park, Westview and West End and culminates to the south at Adair Park and University Avenue. With lush, green open spaces and a 14-foot-wide path, it’s ideal for children and families to easily walk, run, bike, or explore with scooters. As on the Eastside, the Westside Trail has its share of outstanding artwork. Look for “The Highball Artist” by Hadley Breckenridge, a rainbow-like mural radiating from underneath the Lucile Avenue bridge, and the brightly colored “BeltLine Bears,” by Kyle Brooks, graces a retaining wall next to Langhorn Street. Keep your eyes peeled for miniature installations from Tiny Doors ATL. Check the Atlanta BeltLine website for happenings such as Egyptian yoga, an arboretum walking tour, sunrise and sunset hikes, skateboard lessons and even sessions to teach kids how to ride bikes. www.beltline.org

SEVEN BEST STOPS ON THE ATLANTA BELTLINE From Krog Street Market to Ponce City Market, we’re rounding up the best stops to hit as you spend a day on the BeltLine. BY CHRIS WATKINS With so many different Atlanta neighborhoods, each with its own personality and exciting vibes, it can be hard to find the common thread that unites the city as a whole. Just take a tour of the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail. The former railway corridor has become a hallmark of Atlanta’s urban redevelopment and prospers as a vital connection to our favorite neighborhoods.

LOTTAFRUTTA Start your BeltLine tour with a much-needed energy shot at LottaFrutta. The popular Old Fourth Ward mainstay from fruitologist Myrna Perez serves delicious fresh-cut fruit cups, smoothies, sandwiches and salads in a funky and festive space on Auburn Avenue, well worth the stop to get your BeltLine adventure under way.

ATLANTA.NET

KROG STREET MARKET Since opening in 2014, the expansive mixed-used development has been home to delicious Mexican eats at Superica, fiery-hot chicken at Richard’s Southern Fried, masterful burgers at Fred’s Meat & Bread and the list goes on. Pull up a stool at Hop City Beer & Wine for a frothy pint or get your shop on at The Merchant as you take in the industrial charm and one of the finest food halls around.

MURAL MADNESS From massive murals and ironworks to tiny doors and interactive dioramas, the Atlanta BeltLine is the place to find a plethora of amazing art -- but you have to know where to find it. Murals change out every year, so when you see something that stirs your emotions,

be sure to take a picture because it may not be around for long. Commonly found along the way on most underpasses and any place with a massive wall perfect for a funky canvas, artwork ranges from ornate geometric masterpieces like HENSE’s color-popping work under Virginia Avenue to the thoughtprovoking Abhaya Brings Teachings of Love by Rising Red Lotus.

IRON GIANTS What was once a railway corridor full of iron is now a trail full of whimsy and exploration. The iron does, however, remain as artists have created iron and steel structures across the path that inspire curiosity and tell unique stories. Just take A 24/7 Timestar Lives that creates unique shadows across the landscape as the sun passes. Additional works include Railway Workers, the Iron Column and more metal masterpieces, all crafted from discarded railroad pieces of the BeltLine itself, connecting these unique pieces to the history behind them.

Historic Fourth Ward Park

Ponce City Market

TINY DOORS ATL While the BeltLine’s Eastside Trail has so much to see at eye level, you’d be remiss if you didn’t take a second to look down. Depending on where you are, you just might find a doorway to something straight out of “Alice in Wonderland.” Discreet offerings like the Tiny Doors project of minuscule entryways are more challenging to find, but that’s all part of the fun in exploring the BeltLine.

PARKS & RECREATION The first green space that comes to mind on the BeltLine is probably Piedmont Park,

but you can also peruse just as lush an area in Old Fourth Ward. Historic Fourth Ward Park has glorious skyline views and space large enough to host a variety of events from concerts and festivals to outdoor yoga classes and recreational sports. If you want to practice your thrashing skills, O4W Skate Park is a sound decision to discover your inner Tony Hawk. Just try not to wipe out. And whether you’re on the BeltLine for exercise or leisure, if you don’t have a bike, Atlanta’s Relay Bike Share program provides easy access to two-wheeled transportation along the trail.

PONCE CITY MARKET The last stop on this BeltLine tour of the Eastside Trail takes us to Atlanta’s mixed-use development, Ponce City Market. What’s not to love about the former Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Atlanta City Hall facility that now houses mouthwatering dining options, serious cocktail action, retail shops, living space and the cherry on top in Skyline Park’s rooftop digs for sprawling views of ATL and carnival games galore?

PAOLO’S GELATO ITALIANO

DINING

Paolo’s Gelato Italiano

FROSTY FARE When the temperatures soar, refresh with one of Atlanta’s best frozen treats. These local delights will have you wishing for a few more days of summertime. BY LIESL MERKEL Flavors of the south are infused into sweet frozen goodness at Honeysuckle Gelato in Ponce City Market. What started in a food truck in 2011 has blossomed into a retail shop in the Central Food Hall, selling scoops, shakes and sandwiches. Gelato flavors vary from creamy Nutella to Brown Butter, Honey Lavender, Goat Cheese and Honey, and Fresh Mint. Gelato sandwiches are offered from a push cart in the Ponce City Market courtyard (ThursdaySaturday, 4:30-8:30 p.m.) and on the BeltLine (The Shed at Ponce City Market, 2-6 p.m.) on Sundays. Choose your grab and go option from the cart in the form of Fresh Mint Chip Brownie, Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie, Salted Caramel Brownie or Butter Pecan Blondie. For those who can’t make it to Ponce City Market, pints of these local favorites are available at Whole Foods stores and include Brown Butter Crunch, made with local Banner Butter and toffee chips, Bourbon Pecan Praline, Fresh Mint Chip, Chocolate, Sea Salted Caramel and Raspberry Sorbet. Honeysuckle Gelato’s

partnership with the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) allows them to give five percent of all their profits to the ACFB, making sure other families can get food on their table. So, order a second scoop or surprise a friend with madefrom-scratch creamy dreamy gelato. You’ll be doing some good for the community. www.honeysucklegelato.com In Atlanta, kids and adults know when they see a rainbow umbrella, a King of Pops push cart is near. Originally found on the corner of North Avenue and North Highland Avenue in Inman Park and now with many regular cart spots throughout Atlanta including SunTrust Park, Piedmont Park and a walk-up window on the Atlanta BeltLine, locals clamor to grab the last Thai Iced Tea or Cookies and Cream pop. Each pop is handmade, which means that you’ll receive as many cookies as possible packed into one Banana Puddin’ pop. The Chocolate Sea Salt flavor has been included in several Best of Atlanta polls, and other year-round flavors include Raspberry Lime,

Key Lime Pie and Orange Cream. Seasonal summer flavors run from Pineapple Habanero, Grapefruit Mint and Lemon Basil to Peaches n’ Cream. The King of Pops team puts a lot of effort into making the pop ingredients as local as possible. Thus, King of Crops was born and created “the world’s first popsicle farm.” The west Georgia farm is the company’s way of creating local, organic produce to use in their very own pops, quite literally following the product creation from crop to pop. If those pops aren’t good enough by themselves, then head to the King of Pops Bar at Ponce City Market for a Poptail - fresh juice, alcohol and a pop all in one glass. Try the Bear Trap with bourbon, lemon, blackberry, soda and a Blackberry Ginger Lemon pop, and the Lucha Leche with horchata, spiced rum, cinnamon and a vanilla pop. www.kingofpops.com Nostalgia prevails at Atlanta area Zesto locations, which serve satisfying American food and frozen treats made with real ice cream - not ice milk or another combination. Although not technically created in Atlanta, this Rockton, Il. company started in 1945 and has several franchises based here and are mostly family owned. In 1949, the first Zesto

Sprinkle Cookie. In 2014, Queen of Cream was created as an ice cream cart and in 2015, their bright and cheerful ice cream and coffee parlor opened in the Old Fourth Ward, serving small batch ice cream with coffee and pastries. Queen of Cream’s milk is sourced from Working Cows Dairy in Alabama and they even pasteurize their own ice cream base. Mix your flavors with perhaps Tahitian Vanilla Bean and Brown Butter Pecan in a freshly made waffle cone. Sundae flavors pop up including the Strawberry Cheesecake Sundae with Strawberry and Vanilla Bean ice cream, fresh strawberry sauce, graham cracker and pie crumbs, cheesecake sauce and local grass-fed whipped cream. That pastry you order alongside your dessert is made in-house as well. www.queenofcream.com At Paolo’s Gelato Italiano, guests wander into the Virginia-Highland location and are immediately overtaken with the myriad flavors of gelato. A Treviso, Italy native, the colorful host and owner Paolo Dalla Zorza opened his gelateria in 2000 after studying gelato around the world, and now he offers more than 62 flavors. There isn’t just one chocolate flavor. There’s a whole section of chocolate Continued on page 26

opened in Atlanta by John Livaditis. Fries, fried chicken, hot dogs and burgers including Atlanta’s original double decker hamburger called the Chubby Decker are sold, but the real stars are the desserts. Order a Brown Crown and you’ll receive soft serve ice cream dipped in chocolate, or a crunchier version in the Nut Brown Crown. Colorful sundaes in comforting flavors like hot fudge and butterscotch also come with wild cherry, blueberry, peanut butter, coffee, peach and more. Grab a friend and dig into a banana split or try a hand spun milkshake, twist cone or ice cream float. The Arctic Swirl is made with candies, cookies or nuts: Mint Oreo, Brownie Bites, Nana Nilla and M&Ms. Find a Zesto on Piedmont Road in Buckhead, in East Atlanta, Little Five Points, Forest Park and, a bit farther south in Tyrone. www.zestoatlanta.com There are very few things better than a cup of steaming coffee and quality ice cream as an afternoon snack. Queen of Cream takes ice cream making seriously, and theirs is 100 percent, made from scratch, with no premade mixes in sight. You’ll always find flavors like Deep Chocolate, Cookies + Cream, ColdBrew Coffee with Cocoa Nib Crunch, Brown Butter Pecan and Lavender Honeycomb, and

gelatos: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate hazelnut, and even a hot pepper infused chocolate. Paolo’s is all about pairing, so definitely order more than one scoop. Try ​ pistachio and almond, or creamy flavors like Zuppa Inglese (custard base with bits of cake and sherry), rum raisin and Stracciatella (a fior di latte base with chocolate bits). To make your choosing even harder, coffee flavors and summery shades of sorbetti in Mandarin orange, lemon, local fig, peaches and apricot provide a delight for the senses. A Cannoli Bar is also in the shop, where patrons can make a customized cannoli. Pair your cannoli or gelato with Italian coffee such as cappuccino, latte, macchiato and espresso, as well as affogato, akin to an Italian coffee float. Come early - the lines will grow longer as the summer months get hotter. www.paolosgelato.com While not technically a frozen treat shop, Miller Union serves delightful ice cream sandwiches, and only during the lunch service. Pastry Chef Pamela Moxley creates this only dessert on the lunch menu, and the daily selection usually offers two or three flavors. A semifinalist for “Outstanding Pastry Chef” at the 2016 James Beard Awards, Moxley’s seasonal flavor selections have included Chocolate-Malt Brownie, Spiced-Caramel

Above, left: Queen of Cream; Above, right: Amaretti Crumbles at Honeysuckle Gelato

Swirl, Strawberry, Lemon Bar Crunch, Espresso-Pistachio Toffee and Brown SugarChocolate, all encased in a soft homemade cookie. These gems pair perfectly with a local favorite that’s always voted one of the top burgers in Atlanta: Miller Union’s grass-fed burger with cheddar cheese, traditional fixings and fries. Miller Union first appeared on the scene in 2009 before many other restaurants had opened in this area, but long after the 1881 Miller Union Stockyards was shuttered.

CELEBRATE

Now, Executive Chef Steven Satterfield and General Manager Neal McCarthy have formulated Miller Union on this site serving refined, southern-slanted cuisine. You’ll be in good hands here. www.millerunion.com Be sure to visit the Atlanta Ice Cream Festival for more local flavors in one setting.

One side of the bridge originally came to life as The White Provision Company, a meatpacking plant; opposite was United Butchers Abattoir.
