INSIDER INFO

Insider Info Hot tips to help you find the best places to go and things to do, save money or just help you get the information you need to maximize your stay here.

CONCIERGE CORNER When you visit Atlanta, be sure to find the best places to experience. Will Dempsey, Concierge at The Whitley, gives us some insider picks. Where should visitors go to experience Atlanta? I think one of Atlanta’s hidden gems is the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. With several access areas throughout the near suburbs, these parks are amazing. In Buckhead, I love the Atlanta History Center (AHC). Offering excellent exhibits, the Swan House, the Smith Family Farm, walking trails and the reopening of the Cyclorama, the AHC is wonderful for learning and taking a beautiful stroll outside.

Where should guests dine? Westside Provisions District’s offerings of West Egg Café, JCT Kitchen and Marcel are three where I could probably eat all my meals. For a great steakhouse, Chops and Bones are the ultimate. Finally, my own Whitley Hotel’s Trade Root lounge is the perfect hangout for some Southern appetizers and a great cocktail, especially on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons when there is live jazz. Where can visitors go for unique shopping? Westside Provisions District has numerous unique boutiques. One area I don’t think gets enough credit is the charming area of Vinings. Drive down West Paces Ferry to see the beautiful estates along the way to this quaint shopping district. Don’t miss Stockyard for burgers while you’re recovering from carrying all those bags from Waiting on Martha Home.

Tiny Doors ATL

CHRIS WATKINS

There’s a treasure hunt in town and it has to do with little bitty doors. Tiny Doors ATL started as an art project to create conversations and become a revolving installation among neighborhoods and surrounding areas. The adorable little doors are found along the Atlanta BeltLine and at some of Atlanta’s attractions, among other in-town places.

As you explore local attractions:

• Swan House at the Atlanta History Center: Located at the front of the 1920s Swan House on property of the Center, this mini door is built inside a tree. • Center for Puppetry Arts: Find this dainty purple number outside of the center to the right of the pedestrian ramp. • Fox Theatre: This relatively new little door is located on the information booth facing Peachtree Street.

• Georgia Aquarium: This one is found on the entrance to the Ocean Voyager exhibition, and there is a fee to enter the aquarium. • Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail: A mural by HENSE also has an elevated tiny door present on the painting. Visit www.tinydoorsatl.com for the Adventure Map listing all of the doors, most of which are free to view and outdoors. -LM

AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

Before IMAX theaters and even before film, cycloramas were a form of entertainment in the late 19th century, giving a visual story through a 360-degree painting. Now, one of America’s largest historic treasures is safely preserved at the Atlanta History Center. The 132-year-old cyclorama painting entitled “The Battle of Atlanta” is the centerpiece of the new interactive experience called “Cyclorama: The Big Picture.” This circular, hand-painted work towers 49 feet tall and engulfs visitors into the 1864 American Civil War battle. The Atlanta History Center team has restored the painting to its original glory, including re-creating three missing panels, cleaning the painting and re-fashioning the 120-foot diorama landscape that houses 128 restored plaster Civil War soldier figures. Interactive media and images will also be used to steer “Cyclorama: The Big Picture” into a larger conversation of how perceptions, memory and interpretations can shape the big picture of our past, present and future. While you’re there: Check out “Locomotion: Railroads and the Making of Atlanta,” focusing on the 1856 Texas locomotive, and also telling the story of Atlanta’s beginning as a railroad community and commerce hub. www.atlantahistorycenter.com

EUROPEAN MASTERWORKS You may not know about art from the late 19th- and early 20th-century time periods off the top of your head, but throw in names like Degas, van Gogh and Picasso and it should ring a powerful bell. “European Masterworks: The Phillips Collection” will bring 75 familiar sculptures and paintings to the High Museum of Art, running until July 14. Works to be seen at the High include creations not only by the above artists but also Monet, Daumier, Delacroix, Manet, Gauguin, Cezanne, Matisse and Braque. Strong, expressive color will be largely present in many of the works. You’ll see famous paintings including Picasso’s “The Woman with Green Hat,” “Dancers at the Barre” by Degas and van Gogh’s “Entrance to the Public Gardens at Arles.” While you’re there: The newly reimagined permanent collection deserves a look, and the new Greene Family Learning Gallery has two interactive learning areas for children. www.high.org

PREHISTORIC PRESENTATION It’s not a bird, it’s not a plane, nor was it a dinosaur, but Fernbank Museum of Natural

History will teach visitors all about the mysterious pterosaur during the interactive exhibition “Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of the Dinosaurs.” On view until May 5, the exhibition will include fossils and life-sized models, as well as interactive stations, dioramas and casts to teach more about these creatures who flew with their fingers and walked on their wings. This remarkable experience takes visitors on a trip through the Mesozoic Era to learn about the largest flying animals that have ever lived. While you’re there: Check out the Continued on page 22

Tulips are the darlings of the Garden bouquets but look out for lesser known bulbs, as well as flowering trees, shrubs and annuals decorated in red, purple and yellows to frame the magical show.

TWO URBAN LICKS During weekend brunch, the Atlanta BeltLine-facing patio at this Old Fourth Ward hotspot is prime real estate. Mimosas are available by the glass or the pitcher, and the drink list also includes Bloody Marias, peach bellinis, sparkling wine and craft cocktails. Keep it light with granola or a frittata, or indulge in the crispy chicken biscuit or the burger with sides like cornbread with Gouda grits and sweet corn chorizo hash. The dinner menu includes shareables like salmon chips and shaved calamari and entrees ranging from enchiladas and pork belly to scallops and steak. www.twourbanlicks.com

SUPERICA Located inside the popular Krog Street Market food hall, this sit-down, Tex-Mex spot keeps the margaritas flowing. Start with guacamole, chili con queso, queso fundido, or one of three styles of nachos, then choose from favorites like enchiladas, fajitas and

tacos or traditional Mexican style meals like carne asada and chille relleno. An $11.99 weekday lunch serves up your choice of two from nachos, a taco, enchilada, salad, and soup served with rice and beans. www.superica.com

THE TAVERN AT PHIPPS PLAZA This bustling patio in the heart of Buckhead is perfect for taking a break from shopping in the popular retail mecca of Phipps. For sharing, try the trademark tavern chips, fresh baked tortilla chips available in several varieties, including the Southwestern (firecracker shrimp, poblano peppers, sweet corn, red onion, black bean puree and mild queso) and classic spinach (creamed spinach, white queso and grated pecorino cheese). Lighter options include hearty salads like the Thai chicken, candied walnuts and field greens and Creole shrimp.
