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 visitors come to the city, it’s a good bet to find out information from our knowledgeable concierge friends. Eddy Romero, Guest Services and Concierge Manager for Atlantic Station and vice president of operations for the Concierge Society of Atlanta gives us his tips. When visitors come to Atlanta during the spring, I tell them to ... Experience: Definitely go to Stone Mountain Park, which is a load of fun for just about all ages with their many wonderful

attractions within the property. Visit the Atlanta History Center because of all that it has to offer: Civil War history and memorabilia, the Swan House Tour, the gardens, Atlanta Cyclorama (take a behind the scenes tour) and exhibitions surrounding Atlanta’s history. You can also get a magical city experience of shopping and dining all in one spot without having to drive at Atlantic Station. Enjoy a movie, shop, dine and even splurge with a great Kilwin’s Caramel Apple or their Sipping Chocolate as a treat. Buy: I would purchase an item from the World of Coca-Cola since Atlanta is their home and where it was founded. The gift shop is full of Coca-Cola items. Dine: Eat at La Tavola. The food is amazing and it is very quaint and romantic, tucked in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood.

EXPLORE

HOW DO YOU ATL? Whether you are interested in hitting the great outdoors, exploring our arts scene or scoping out the scene at an annual festival, we have ideas for you.

FESTIVAL FOLLOWER Are artist markets your jam? Or, maybe you think festival food is far more interesting than jam whether it’s turkey legs, funnel cakes or a gourmet food truck. Get a feel for the neighborhood vibe and stay for the live music.

OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST Explore the great outdoors one sunny site at a time. Take a walk in the many gardens, wooded trails and paved paths around the city or brave the waters in a canoe, kayak or paddleboard.

HERITAGE & CULTURE SEEKER Embrace the city’s heritage with the MLK Jr. National Historic Site and many other significant sites brimming with the rich African American culture woven together that makes up the fabric of Atlanta.

ARTS AND THEATER AFICIONADO Whether you’re into gallery gazing or want to snag front row seats to the latest theater premiere, Atlanta’s symphony of sights and sounds will tempt from all areas of town.

HISTORY BUFF Are you someone who loves to linger in the past? No historic site is too old, and you live for discoveries, digs, artifacts and passed-down stories.

Showing Feb. 10-May 6, this exhibition highlights a new perspective on human health through larger-than-life models, games and videos. Try your hand at keeping a virtual microbiome healthy by eliminating strep throat with antibiotics, and take charge of meal time with menu choices from pickles to broccoli and cookies.

GO BEHIND THE SCENES OF ATLANTA CYCLORAMA www.VisitMadisonGA.com

One of the “South’s Best Small Towns” -Southern Living Magazine

MAKE HISTORY YOURS!

Art conservators and historians are fast at work restoring “The Battle of Atlanta” cyclorama painting to its 1886 glory before it opens to the public in its new home in the 23,000-square foot Lloyd and Mary Ann Whitaker Cyclorama Building at the Atlanta History Center in fall 2018. Guests to the Atlanta History Center can now go behind the scenes with knowledgeable guides to view the massive painting – one of Atlanta’s rarest treasures -- and witness the restoration process in person. Additionally, guests will learn about the famous Texas locomotive and its role during the Great Locomotive Chase of 1862. The painting is 42 feet tall and 359 feet in circumference. Following the restoration, the painting will grow to 49 feet tall and 371 feet in circumference. This includes the addition of new sky at the top of the painting and a six foot strip to replace a missing section. A new diorama surface will be constructed and 128 of the original plaster figures will be restored. The History Center will use many perspectives to discuss the painting, including the context of a single battle, and in a national context of a country divided by war. The painting was previously housed next to Zoo Atlanta in Grant Park before its historic move in February 2017. Behind-the-scenes tours are offered on Saturdays at 1 p.m. or with advanced booking for $75 (includes full access to the Atlanta History Center). www.atlantahistorycenter.com -KL

Or, choose from craft cocktails, beer and wine to pair with shareable starters like parmesan truffle fries, bourbon and beer pimento cheese, and bacon deviled eggs and mains like the shrimp and grits, the signature burger, and steak for two, a cast-iron seared 22 ounce bone-in ribeye with local mushrooms, bacon fat confit fingerling potatoes and hunter’s sauce. www.thesoutherngentlemanatl.com

GYPSY KITCHEN Also located in The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, this stunning patio is as vibrant as the restaurant’s Spanish-inspired cuisine. While open nightly for dinner starting at 5 p.m., 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, $6 glasses of rosé, and more from 4 p.m. on. The restaurant also has a special late

THE GARDEN AT COMMUNITY SMITH This is one of the most underrated patios in the city, probably because it is located in a hotel. But don’t discount it.

Horseradish Grill has been providing upscale, fresh, Southern food to Atlantans since 1994. The restaurant offers a beautiful patio, an extensive wine collection, and as the latest Zagat review stated, “Southern Comfort at every turn.”

SOUTHERN AND SOUL FOOD RESTAURANTS IN ATLANTA What’s the difference between Southern food and soul food? All soul food is Southern but not all Southern food is soul food. Here’s where to find the best of each.

Left: Mary Mac’s; Below: Busy Bee Café; Inset: Fried Chicken from Watershed

SOUTHERN Mary Mac’s – True Southern favorites served here are fried okra, salmon cakes, fried shrimp, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken tenders, fried crawfish and ribs. Did you know? Mary Mac’s serves about 1,000 people per day, so get there early. Milton’s Cuisine and Cocktails – The 150-year-old farmhouse and cottage dating to the 1930s were preserved and restored with classic elements and charming details. Plus, many of the ingredients come from the restaurant’s own on-site garden. Make sure to get the shrimp and potato fritters to start. Steaks here are fantastic, too. Paschal’s – What started as a 30-seat restaurant in 1947 has expanded to an upscale Southern restaurant. Begin with the catfish fingers. Then, get the fried chicken, a signature dish. Pittypat’s Porch – Opened in the 1960s, Pittypat’s has changed very little, down to the Southern favorites on the menu, items like the black-eyed pea cakes, Southern salmon or Rhett’s Mixed Grill. Revival – Establishing roots in a refurbished elegant Southern home, Revival took great care to keep elements such as windows and hardwood floors the same as in the original building. If the Southern chowder is available, go for it. Standouts are the fried catfish and lemon icebox pie. South City Kitchen – This is a favorite spot to take guests looking for a taste of the South in a fun setting. All your Southern favorites are here, like shrimp and grits and fried chicken. Choices such as a catfish Reuben and Nashville fried chicken sandwich are available at lunch. Southern Art – Located in the Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta, the

28

ATLANTA.NET

restaurant’s well-appointed decor and ceiling art frames the “ham bar,” with hams from all over. The menu changes seasonally but features Georgia shrimp and grits, pimento cheese and buttermilk fried chicken. Southern Bistro – Of course, there’s Southern seafood like trout and shrimp and grits for mains at this Sandy Springs restaurant, but go for the starters of fried green tomatoes, Brussels sprouts and the Southern egg rolls with ham, collards and apricot glaze. Sway – You don’t have to travel out of the Hyatt Regency Atlanta to experience Southern cuisine. Visit Sway and get the deviled eggs (topped with bacon/crab/jalapeño) and fried green tomatoes. Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint – It’s crowded during weekend brunch, so go for a weekday dinner when it is less busy. Start with the sampler of fried green tomatoes, onions and fried okra. The fried catfish (fish and chips) and the pork chop are super. Urban Foodie Feed Store – Looking for a spot near the airport? Check out this new Southern restaurant in College Park. Items here have an elegant twist. Try the Southern Fried (goat cheese-stuffed fried green tomatoes with crispy collards) or the Down South (bacon-wrapped quail breast with mango salsa). Watershed on Peachtree – At lunch there are daily specials Tuesday through Saturday for $16. These include items like meatloaf and fried chicken and biscuits. Chicken and dumplings, blackened red fish and a truffle chicken salad sandwich are also delicious. Wisteria – This Inman Park restaurant is located in a gorgeous historic brick building. Get the black-eyed pea hummus and the molasses-rubbed pork tenderloin.

SOUL FOOD L Marie’s – If you find yourself in Cobb County with a hankering for Southern food, visit L Marie’s. Get the fried chicken, sweet potato souffle and squash casserole here. Beautiful Restaurant – Tip: Try the teamonade (the restaurant’s answer to an Arnold Palmer). The pork chops are a highlight here. Oxtails are a good choice, too. Collards as a side are a must. For dessert, get the strawberry cake or banana pudding. Big Daddy’s – There are a couple locations in Atlanta of this cafeteria-style spot. Don’t go here on Sundays as the line is wrapped around the building. Get the dressing, cabbage and broccoli casserole. Busy Bee Cafe – Some of the best fried chicken in Atlanta can be found here. Heads up: It’s closed on Saturdays. Sides include fried green tomatoes, mashed potatoes, fried okra, fried corn and, of course, collards. Soul Vegetarian – Located in the PonceyHighland neighborhood, this is a vegetarian’s paradise with its take on soul food. Get the barbecue tofu or cauliflower. Twisted Soul – A more modern take on soul food on the Westside is Twisted Soul. Cranberry moonshine gravy on top of stuffed turkey wings? Yes, please. -Malika Bowling


DINING

GREAT DINING DOWNTOWN Whether you are visiting, have out-of-town guests, a business dinner or just want to plan a fun outing, downtown Atlanta has lots of great restaurants. Here are a few. ALMA COCINA This Latin restaurant is a short walk from many of the downtown attractions and a world away from a chain restaurants experience. The menu is divided into various sections, which is good to suit a group of diverse eaters. Get the huaraches – crisp corn masas with different toppings like goat or shrimp. Cocktails are well made here, too.

WHITE OAK KITCHEN & COCKTAILS Located in the heart of downtown, this is a great choice for a business meal or to enjoy after an afternoon of touristy activities downtown. The Southern take on shrimp or fish is both delicious and light. For something heartier, there always seems to be one dish with pork belly in it, and you don’t want to miss out on that. -Malika Bowling

White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails

THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHING HAPPENING AT BUCKHEAD LIFE RESTAURANT GROUP.

DER BIERGARTEN With its prime downtown location and the fact that it has rooftop dining, the German restaurant could just stop there. But it doesn’t. Several other things that make it a great spot are that it is dog friendly, you can catch whatever big game is happening on large screens and the cuisine is quite delicious.

NIKOLAI’S ROOF Dine like Russian royalty at Nikolai’s Roof at the top of the Hilton Atlanta. The cool and crisp white decor of the restaurant is certainly alluring, but it’s the view most love. Two-top tables are set against the floor-to-ceiling windows, with stunning views of the Atlanta skyline. Winning dishes are the sweet potato and coconut bisque, full of lump crab. Lamb and duck are specialties here, and fish is sensational, too.

POLARIS High atop Hyatt Regency Atlanta in downtown Atlanta is the famed Blue Dome, resurrected after a long hiatus. Polaris has its own bourbon through a partnership with Elijah Craig. You really can’t go wrong with any of the cocktails, though. Plus, Polaris makes its own honey and grows many of its own herbs. The menu is small and changes quite often, but past highlights featured grouper cheeks and more.

POOR CALVIN’S How do you meld Asian and Southern food? Chef Calvin Phan has found a way to serve up amazing creations from these two wonderful cuisines with offerings like the fried goat cheese with curry mustard and the grouper Thai curry. Make reservations as this spot is quite popular.

SHOPPING

The Shops Buckhead Atlanta

OUTDOOR SPRING SHOPPING It doesn’t get much better than shopping in Atlanta’s many open-air shopping districts. Take your pick – trendy, high-end, tried and true, or affordable. Atlanta has it all. BY CAROL CARTER ATLANTIC STATION If you want to know what urban redevelopment looks like, travel no further than Atlantic Station, which underwent a metamorphosis from being the brownfield site of a former steel mill to one of Atlanta’s most stylish and go-to stops for shoppers. After visiting the giant IKEA store (Can you find the exit?), shop Banana Republic, Target, Victoria’s Secret and West Elm to name just a few of the well-known retailers beckoning shoppers. Hungry? Treat yourself to soup and salad at Salata or a taste of the Irish at Meehan’s Public House. Insider tip: Different seasons bring different events to Atlantic Station. In the springtime, bring the kiddos for an Easter egg hunt. www.atlanticstation.com

WESTSIDE PROVISIONS DISTRICT One plus one equals one dynamic shopping destination. Westside Provisions District was born when Westside Urban Market (once

32

ATLANTA.NET

United Butchers Abattoir) and White Provision (once a meatpacking plant) joined forces via a footbridge to become a sought-after shopping haven. Today, it’s where shoppers seek out treasures at Anthropologie, Free People, Peridot West, Little Barn Apothecary and plenty more. Get your java jive at Brash Coffee before or after dining on a chicken enchilada at Taqueria del Sol. Don’t leave without a treat from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Insider tip: The patio at JCT. Bar is just right for people watching and sharing small plates. www.westsideprovisions.com

PONCE CITY MARKET One of the hippest and hottest shopping destinations in Atlanta, Ponce City Market is steeped in retail history. The development, once a giant Sears, Roebuck & Co. warehouse and store, made Travel + Leisure’s list of coolest tourist attractions. Roam the massive building, constructed in 1926, and you’ll find

classic clothes for women at Abbey Glass and pick up the ingredients needed to craft a yummy cocktail at 18.21 Bitters. Remember Fido with a surprise from Ace & Jack. Visit the Food Hall for Indian street food at Botiwalla, wildly popular burgers at H&F, coffee at Dancing Goats and much more. Insider tip: If you’re coming off the Atlanta BeltLine with your dog, pooches are welcome in the courtyard. www.poncecitymarket.com

SHOPS AROUND LENOX Just across the street from Lenox Square (anchored by Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Macy’s), find the outdoor Shops Around Lenox. Here’s where to shop Draper James (Reese Witherspoon’s retail offering of fashion and home goods) or the expansive Crate & Barrel. Visit fab’rik for clothing, shoes and accessories and Kendra Scott for jewelry and gifts. Try some North Indian cuisine at Bhojanic or grab a smoothie at Roots Juices. Insider tip: Keep a lookout for street art from well-known artists HENSE and Peter Ferrari. www.shopsaroundlenox.com

SHOPPING

THE SHOPS BUCKHEAD ATLANTA When your debit card balance is no obstacle, point your GPS to The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, home of more than 50 designer stores, arrayed along six city blocks. If it’s clothes you’re after, try Alice & Olivia, Cynthia Rowley, Billy Reid or Dior. Home furnishings? Check in at Anne O Art or Jonathan Adler. If shoes are your guilty pleasure, then visit Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin. You won’t go hungry with choices like Cut Bar (fried chicken sandwich) or a sweet treat from Amorino Gelato. Insider tip: If you want to pick up something affordable, try L’Occitane for moisturizing oils and shea butters. www.theshopsbuckheadatlanta.com

NORTH GEORGIA PREMIUM OUTLETS Depending on where you start, this outdoor shopping center is about 90 minutes north of Atlanta right on Georgia 400. Indulge in some retail therapy at shops like WilliamsSonoma Outlet, Restoration Hardware Outlet and Pottery Barn Outlet. If it’s clothing you crave, stop here for the Talbot’s Outlet,

Under Armour, Lucky Brand jeans and Kate Spade New York. Visit Buckhead Grill for a sandwich, Caribou Coffee for a pick-me-up or dash into Auntie Anne’s for a pretzel. Insider tip: Check in at the mall office for coupons, and if you have kids, stop by the Children’s Courtyard between The Children’s Place Outlet and Gap Outlet. www.premiumoutlets.com/outlet/north-georgia

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 Cookie. Insider tip: In general, savings here add up to 20 to 70 percent off retail. www.theoutletshoppesatatlanta.com

Clockwise from top left: Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta; Atlantic Station; Westside Provisions District; Ponce City Market.

INDOOR HONORABLE MENTIONS These shopping areas are perfect for a rainy day, or even a sunny day when you’re looking for a place to stay cool. • Since 1959, Lenox Square has served as the Southeast’s premier shopping destination, anchored by Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Macy’s, and features 250 specialty stores such as Louis Vuitton, Diesel, 7 for All Mankind, Alex and Ani, Burberry, A/X, Escada, Prada and a two story Nike flagship store, plus restaurants. • Just across Peachtree Street, Phipps Plaza is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom.

Atlanta is home to a thriving craft beer scene, and some of the breweries offer tours and tasting rooms. Among our favorites are Orpheus Brewing Company, SweetWater Brewery and Gate City Brewing Co. Arden’s Garden is Atlanta’s fresh juice manufacturer. Available in supermarkets such as Whole Foods, Publix and Kroger, the juices also are available at various coffee and bagel shops, health food stores and Arden’s Garden stores. All juices and smoothies are made from combinations of more than 20 fruits and vegetables. Detox and cleansing juices are also available. Atlanta Spirit Whiskey got its start when Jim Chasten, Charlie Thompson and Justin Manglitz developed a love of spirits at the University of Georgia (Frankly, that’s not too unusual.). But they started a distillery in Atlanta and decided to concentrate on making Spirit Whiskey, a clean whiskey (a perfect substitute for vodka or bourbon), Fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye and Georgia Orchard Apple Brandy. They also give tours and have a shop of appropriate crystal and other items that help in enjoying a spirit. Chuice is a juice you chew. It’s filled with more than 35 fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and herbs and is packed with nutrients, vitamins, fiber and lots of other good stuff. By chewing, the body starts digestion naturally and secretes enzymes in the mouth to begin digestion. Chuice is made by hand, using a combination of chopping, juicing and blending. Among the products are Heart Beet and Evergreen. Emily G’s started out selling four jams at a farmers market in 2008 and now sells 18 jam flavors, sauces and relish. Best sellers include jalapeño raspberry, peach marmalade and fig pomegranate. Emily G’s also offers an awardwinning Three Pepper Relish. Georgia Grinders sells nut butters made from all natural ingredients that are also nonGMO. Among the products are the original almond butter as well as crunchy peanut butter, creamy cashew butter and pecan butter. Some are even Whole 30 approved. The Cinnamon Vanilla Pecan Peanut Butter tastes almost exactly like French Toast, making it a worthy souvenir for your trip home. High Road Craft Ice Cream started as a group of chefs who made ice cream for other chefs to serve in restaurants, hotels and resorts. Today the ice cream is available in stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Part of the secret is that High Road makes everything that goes into its ice cream, such as the cookies, brownies, fruit preserves and caramels. High Road’s founder and CEO Keith Schroeder’s book, “Cooking Light Made Delicious: The Science of Making Good-forYou-Food Taste Amazing,” won a 2015 James Beard Award.
