Hot tips to help you find the best places to go and things to do, save you 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. Jessica Gorman, head concierge at The RitzCarlton, Buckhead, gives us some tips. During the summer in Atlanta, I tell our visitors to: Experience: Hike to the top of Stone Mountain for some of the best skyline views of the city, walk or bike the BeltLine and take in some great people watching. Beat the heat with a King of Pops popsicle; just look for the colorful umbrellas around town. Atlanta even has its own ice cream festival July 22 at Piedmont Park. For those who prefer to stay

cool indoors, get a dose of history at the Center for Civil and Human Rights or gear up for college football season at the College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience. I recommend interactive activities for families, including Legoland Discovery Center, Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the Children’s Museum of Atlanta. Buy: Ponce City Market is a destination in itself. Visit the farmer’s and artist markets held weekly then make your way through the food hall for a true international dining experience, for everything from Indian to Mexican delicacies, including James Beard awardwinning chefs Hugh Acheson, Linton Hopkins and Sean Brock. Browse the boutiques as well, whether you’re looking for handmade goods from Citizen Supply or custom stationery and unique gifts at Archer Paper Goods.

ATLANTA IS…CONNECTED Join us as we wrap up our peek into episodes one and two of the Music Voyager Atlanta series, spotlighting a bit of Atlanta’s culinary world. By Sarah Johnson

MEET THE ARTISTS PBS’s Music Voyager, an international music and lifestyle travel series, spotlights the thriving creative communities of Atlanta through four star-packed episodes. Over the past few issues of Atlanta Now, we highlighted several artists featured in the series including Sugarland brothers Kristian and Brandon Bush, Killer Mike and many other Atlanta celebrities. In this final edition covering episodes one and two of the series, we dive into Atlanta’s culinary world with fruitologist Myrna Perez and Top Chef’s “Fan Favorite” contestant Kevin Gillespie.

MYRNA PEREZ Myrna Perez is fruitologist and owner of LottaFrutta, a must-visit spot in Old Fourth Ward serving up fruit cups and exotic smoothies packed with antioxidants. In episode one of Music Voyager, Myrna shows the host how to make her version of a tropical fruit cup, which just so happens to be part of her inspiration for opening LottaFrutta. On your next trip to this fresh fruit-induced locale, choose a delicious fruit cup combo

from the 14 varieties of fresh-cut fruit, a latin-style hot grilled sandwich or a smoothie before hopping on the Atlanta BeltLine and discovering Atlanta’s unique in-town neighborhoods. After a visit with the host at LottaFrutta, Myra takes us on a spin through the Atlanta BeltLine, pointing out the Old Fourth Ward skate park, original street art and why she loves this trail that connects Atlanta’s in-town neighborhoods and features lively restaurants, bars and retail shops just off the path.

In addition to his restaurants Woodfire Grill and Revival, Kevin is the chef of Gunshow, an innovative restaurant located in the Glenwood Park neighborhood of Atlanta. During this episode, Kevin also offers a behind-the-scenes look into his Dekalb Farmers Market shopping experience as he gets ready to prepare a memorable dish for restaurant guests of Gunshow. You’ll also get a peek inside the restaurant which offers guests a unique dining experience and features fun differentiators like few walls and a highly visible kitchen.

“This is a wonderful outdoor connector. It’s really brought so many of our neighborhood pockets together. It’s a connection.” — Myrna Perez

Have a Little History Roswell is steeped in Civil War history, and, unlike much of metro Atlanta, which was burned by Union troops during the war, many of the Civil War-era homes still stand in Roswell. Bulloch Hall - The 1839 Greek Revival home was built by Major James Stephens Bulloch, one of Roswell’s first settlers. The home hosted many gatherings, including the wedding of Bulloch’s daughter Mittie to future president Theodore Roosevelt in 1853. Take a guided tour to see period and original furniture. Barrington Hall - The 1839 Greek Revival-style home is highlighted by stories of the home’s inhabitants during a tour of the bedrooms, kitchen and gardens. Also on the property is the only antebellum public garden in metro Atlanta. Smith Plantation - This beautiful home features original antique furnishings and outbuildings including a barn, corn crib, kitchen, slave quarters and a carriage house. Tour the grounds and hear stories of the owner and his family as they ran the 300-acre plantation in the small, growing town. Take the Nature Route Old Mill Park - The park houses the ruins of the Roswell Manufacturing Co. mills at Vickery Creek. During the Civil War, the textile mills produced cloth for Confederate uniforms and was run by women, children and older people who could not go to war. When Union troops discovered them, all of the workers were sent north, never to be seen again. Now, you can visit the ruins and walk trails connecting the Chattahoochee River trail system, by starting at the covered bridge. Cool off in the waterfall and creek after a vigorous hike. The Chattahoochee Nature Center Explore the LEED certified Discovery Center Museum with exhibitions that tell about the Chattahoochee River, native reptiles, birds of prey, beavers and opossums. Stroll through the butterfly garden or go on some of the many hiking trails. Shoot the ’Hooch - The Chattahoochee River runs along the southern end of Roswell and is accented by Azalea Park and Riverside Park. Use one of the local outfitters and canoe, raft, kayak or paddleboard along the river. For more great things to see and do in Roswell, visit www.visitroswellga.com.

The look and ambiance of Bacchanalia’s new location is inspired by Summerland, the chef’s family farm in north Georgia.

Take a Walk on the Westside Atlanta’s Westside neighborhood is a destination for design, shopping and dining in hip, industrial spaces. Here are a few restaurants that you simply must hit while in town. BY LIESL MERKEL Miller Union 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. Now, Executive Chef Steven Satterfield and General Manager Neal McCarthy have formulated Miller Union on this site serving refined, southern-slanted cuisine. During dinner, start with the Feta Snack or signature farm egg baked in celery cream with grilled bread. Menu items could change but feature dishes such as braised rabbit with herb gnocchi, ramps, radish and rabbit bacon, and grilled pork loin with tangy burnt onion cream, carrots, turnip and mustard greens. Lunchtime offerings include a local favorite that’s always voted one of the top burgers in Atlanta: Miller Union’s grass-fed burger with cheddar cheese,

atlanta.net

traditional fixings and fries. Finish that off with a house made ice cream sandwich, only offered during lunch. If that’s not enough to tempt, Satterfield won the 2017 James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef: Southeast” award and General Manager McCarthy was also nominated for “Outstanding Wine Program” that highlights many small producers. You’ll be in good hands here. www.millerunion.com

Bacchanalia Experience the essence of farm living within the city with this locally loved dining spot by chef/owners and James Beard Award winners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison. Bacchanalia recently moved to a new location along with its sister shop Star Provisions Market & Cafe. Now on Ellsworth Industrial

Boulevard, one of Atlanta’s most acclaimed restaurants embarks on a new chapter. This unique space was inspired by Quatrano’s family farm, Summerland in Cartersville, Ga. Expect a refreshed approach to their daily, four-course prix fixe menu with regard to locally sourced ingredients, many of which are gathered from Summerland. The courses vary by night and season, but have been known to feature Crab Fritter with Thai essence and citrus avocado, or Kobe tartare accompanied by peanut and horseradish. Second Course delves deeper with Maple Leaf Duck, Halibut or Summerland Farm Vegetables and the third highlights a selection of Southern cheeses (Red Cow Parmigianno, anyone?). A sweet finish to a fantastic evening leads us to the last course of Georgia Peach Souffle or perhaps chocolate cake and olive oil ice cream. www.starprovisions.com

quality ingredients and carefully themed menus to his devoted following. When The Optimist arrived on the scene in 2012 as a seaside fishing camp created from an old ham aging house, the restaurant won Esquire magazine’s Best New Restaurant in America title and has been going strong since. From whole roasted Georgia trout to fresh oysters from the East coast, guests enjoy seafood from the country’s best suppliers. To start, try a handcrafted cocktail and a plate of Whole Georgia White Shrimp A La Plancha. Complete with arbol chile, lime and “sopping” toast, the messy effort of eating this dish is worthwhile. Raw delights might include Scallop Crudo touched with buttermilk, orange and tarragon. Peruse the wood hearth roasted fish menu, which varies daily, and you might find ‘Duck Fat Poached’ Swordfish with short rib marmalade, and Whole Crispy Haddock donned with pickled peppers and ponzu, arugula and crispy shallots. Pair your entrees with corn milk hushpuppies and cane syrup butter, or Basmati “Fried Rice” with peanuts and smoked fish. A smart selection of dessert

wine awaits the end of your meal, as does Pineapple Upside Down Cake and hot buttered rum sauce. www.theoptimistrestaurant.com

Live like royalty every day and treat yourself to a local favorite — a popsicle from King of Pops. This small business started by brothers in 2010 has grown to be a loved and reliable find with favorite flavors like the Arnold Palmer, Chocolate Sea Salt, Raspberry Lime and Cookies ‘n Cream. The beloved business has started its own farm called King of Crops, and this year’s Blackberry Honey summer flavor is their first pop to be made with their own produce from the farm. Hop off the Atlanta BeltLine to visit the Ponce City Market location where you can even order a Poptail — a popsicle cocktail from the King of Pops Bar, which also happens to be our tasty cover image. Other locations include a walk-up window further down the Eastside Trail of the BeltLine, many stores around town and at just about any festival in Atlanta.

Marcel Another Ford Fry dazzler is Marcel. Tucked back into the Westside Provisions District and named after Marcel Cerdan, considered by some to be France’s greatest boxer, this place remembers a time when people lingered over the best meals and the best steaks money can

buy. Dig into the throwback American steakhouse menu and find Oysters Bienville for the table or a plate of escargots. Order a Sidecar cocktail or Daiquiri and settle into the leather banquette booth for juicy, sizzling steaks from Linz Heritage Angus Ranch. With options like the eight-ounce New York Strip Marcel reserve cut or the 14 ounce Filet Monsieur, your meal is guaranteed to be memorable. Even more decadent options include Beef Wellington for Two: Chateaubriand, Mushroom Duxelles and puff pastry (requires a 24 hour notice) and the sprawling Porterhouse for Three or More. Add more layers of savory flavor and top your steak with roasted mushrooms in wine, Bearnaise

sauce or Alaskan King Crab. For those not in the mood for a steak, other items include Chicken Paillard with artichokes and lemon butter and Border Springs Lamb Saddle with minted salsa verde. Accompany your main dish with a bit of green: peas with cream and bacon or roasted asparagus, and don’t miss the creamed corn gratin and Pommes Dauphinoise. Baked Alaska, of course, is what you need for dessert. www.marcelatl.com

COOL DOWN WITH LOCAL TREATS Summer just got sweeter — and a bit cooler — with this lineup of local ice cream shops. • In Ponce City Market, try made-fromscratch gelato at Honeysuckle Gelato, which got started inside a cute teal food truck before opening its first retail shop. www.honeysucklegelato.com • Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream boasts a rotation of more than 200 flavors. Try the creamy coconut pineapple, coffee fudge brownie and blueberry corncake in three locations: Ormewood Park, Edgewood and Dunwoody.

ATLANTA’S FAVORITE FOR MEMORABLE DINING

www.morellisicecream.com • Paolo’s Gelato Italiano, a Virginia-Highland mainstay, has been churning out delicious, house-made gelato since 2000. Stop by for a cup or cone of the Italian-named delights, such as the chocolate and hazelnut Bacio or rum raisin Malaga. www.paolosgelato.com

BOCA R ATON

• Queen of Cream makes its ice cream from scratch. Its kitchen uses locally-sourced dairy and real ingredients, and like its Inman Queen of Cream Park neighbor, King of Pops, it was born in Atlanta. With a half-dozen flavors always available (like burnt sugar caramel) and a few more seasonal (who doesn’t love lemon meringue pie?) this is the other Queen that will rock you.

A Sneak Preview of Taste of Atlanta The Atlanta BeltLine is no longer Atlanta’s newest neighborhood on the block, but it is certainly still peaking in popularity. Summer in Atlanta is now synonymous with time on the BeltLine. It’s a destination for walkers, bikers, roller- bladers, joggers, runners, artists and foodies alike. But if you’re a food-lover, this side of town is paradise. Restaurant after restaurant has joined the league of elite BeltLine establishments. With all the green space and culinary interest, Taste of Atlanta decided to move its home to this epicenter of Atlanta. The three-day festival will celebrate its Sweet 16 at Old Fourth Ward Park with 100 local restaurants, many of which are walking distance to the park. The date is set for Oct. 20-22 and a couple BeltLine hot-spots are already signed on! Read more about each of these delicious destinations then head to TasteofAtlanta.com to secure your tickets. • Barcelona Wine Bar - This Spanish tapas and wine bar has a devoted following. Barcelona is located right off the BeltLine near the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park, which is super convenient for the whole walker/biker/ roller-blader/jogger/runner/artist/foodie crowd. Plates of paella, charcuterie and cheese bless most tables alongside some of the best wines this side of the Atlantic. Taste what Barcelona is all about at Taste of Atlanta.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR We love to get mail, especially if the writer recommends something that would appeal to our readers. Fourteen-year-old Alex Lopez tells us about a restaurant in Midtown that he recommends. Dear Editor, I enjoy reading Atlanta Now because it provides useful information on interesting things to do and eat in Atlanta. My favorite parts of the magazine are the food and restaurant articles. One of my favorite restaurants is Wagaya, a Japanese restaurant located on 14th Street in Midtown. They serve all kinds of traditional and modern Japanese cuisine such as “don” and other rice bowls, rice balls stuffed with grilled salmon and chicken, sushi and sashimi, and of course ramen. My favorite dish is the rice bowl with egg, chashu pork, scallion, and surimi (crab substitute) all served in a hot stone bowl with a side of oil to put in to make things crispy. I think an article about Wagaya would be a great addition to the magazine due to the recent ramen craze. Sincerely, Alex Lopez Thank you, Alex! We hope some of our readers will try it.

Dear Editor, I appreciate all of the work you and others have put into Atlanta Now, and I wanted to tell you about an attraction that in my opinion is worth coming to Atlanta for. I love rollercoasters, and I know many others do, too. Six Flags is a great year-round attraction for people of all ages. They have something for everyone. So, say you don’t like rollercoasters as much. They still have lots for you to do. You could go to their waterpark area, try out their captivating game booths (you may even win a prize!), and the food and concessions there are delicious. This is why in my opinion I think Six Flags would be a great addition to Atlanta Now magazine. Thank you so much for your time, and keep up the great work. Sincerely, Ben Lopez Thank you, Ben! We love Six Flags too and think it’s a perfect place for summer fun.
