Well done

Named for a favorite restaurant of his youth, veteran Restauranteur Bob Amick of Concentrics brings us his latest creation, Bully Boy, an East Coast seafood concept located just a few feet from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail. Yellow fin tuna wraps, lobster frittes and blue crab fried rice are but a few of the extensive list of maritime vittles for which to nosedive. Executive chef Michael Bertozzi of sister concept, Two Urban Licks, helms the ship and delivers the seafood bounty as well as a few items from terra firma like a 60-second steak and rabbit patty melt and a massive pork shoulder feast that feeds 4. Justin Amick, Bob’s son and libation genius has curated the wine list to go with your nautical noshes. 4

Scallops crudo with eel sauce and tobiko at Banshee East Atlanta has been “on the verge” for what seems like the past twenty years, but it also has failed to produce a restaurant that has garnered the kind of critical acclaim that has drawn Atlantans from far and wide. Until now. Started by a group of friends, the new Banshee exudes youthful hipsterism and pulsates with sophisticated energy. The food? So good that its chef, Nolan Wynn, recently garnered a James Beard Award nomination. Beautiful plates of globallyinspired, locally sourced and seasonally guided food like scallops crudo with a savory Japanese eel sauce, fried bread with a spectacular pepperoni butter, lobster taglierini with Spanish chorizo and cobia made with an Asian dashi broth and enoki mushrooms are a few of chef Wynn’s creations that are worthy of high praise — and a drive across town.

Ernest Hemingway once described the unwritten page as a “white bull,” an intimidating foe which he would conquer with his writing. If chef Pat Pascarella, executive chef at Decatur’s The White Bull, has similar trepidations, his cooking does not reflect it. Smart Italian dishes of land and sea like crispy oysters and Anson Mills grits, beef ragu, striped bass crudo and tilefish cooked with pork belly are some of the rich, savory bites to expect. Plus house-made pasta like ferricelli, rigatoni, agnolotti, mafalde will melt in your mouth. But for true theater, book a Polenta Party, a chef’s table experience for 6 or more where the chef prepares a creamy feast that is poured across the long table and mixed with chicken, pork and vegetables. No plates, just grab a fork and enjoy! Chef Tom Catherall (Formerly founder of Here to Serve Restaurant Group) has finally retired and his swan song, the popular Virginia Highland spot, Taco Cowboy, has now transitioned to Bar.Bacoa, a den of tacos, tapas and tequilas. Dozens of Latin classics, all plated beautifully and cheffed up to their fullest expression come out of the tiny kitchen. Ceviche,

paella, barbacoa nachos, pork carnitas, and chile-rubbed BBQ salmon are a few of the crowd pleasers. A few of the tacos from the Catherall’s incarnation still live on including the lobster, lamb barbacoa and Korean beef. Cervezas and tequilas are a-flowing so the neighborhood has not missed a beat.

Atlanta will soon be the proud parent of a baby owlet! Hoots, “a Hooters Joint,” (yes, that Hooters) will be opening its first Georgia location of the offspring concept this year. This quickserve version of the parent restaurant will open in Madison Yards in Reynoldstown next to the new AMC Theatres/Publix anchored project. The traditional scantily clad Hooter Girls will be replaced by a more family-friendly co-ed staff wearing V-necks, polos, and khakis. The menu will be a Cliff’s Notes version of the original; a collection of “top takeout sellers” such as various wings and chicken sandwiches and sides like fried pickles and loaded tots. Don’t have a taste for chicken wings? How about a turkey leg? Houston-based Turkey Leg Hut will bring its “world famous stuffed turkey legs” to the former Figo Pasta space in West Midtown. The Houston original offers seven varieties of legs including their signature leg that’s stuffed with dirty rice, a leg stuffed with Cajun mac n cheese and another stuffed with grilled shrimp and Cajun alfredo sauce. Also on the eclectic menu are burgers, salads and cocktails.

Coming this year to the Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail comes Buena Vida Tapas & Sol, Southern Spanish-influenced cuisine from the owners of Big Sky Buckhead. A patio is planned to look out onto the nexus of the Beltline and Historic Fourth Ward Park. With food halls sprouting up throughout the metro area, The Battery Atlanta next to SunTrust Park will open Ph’east later this year, a food hall with indoor and outdoor seating with an Asian twist. Confirmed restaurants include Laotian concept, Snackboxe Bistro, Kung Fu Tea, Lifting Noodles Ramen, Poke Burri, and The Taps. After Gladys Knights Chicken and Waffles took the midnight train to the restaurant graveyard, a Louisiana-based seafood restaurant, Krab Queenz is headed to the downtown to fill the vacancy. Instagram sensation, Kwaylon Rogers (aka Blame It On Kway), is a partner in the effort. Expect lots of boiled and fried seafood plates with a Cajun twist including po’boy sandwiches. Plus boozy floats, daiquiris and cocktails aplenty.

of Buckhead’s Landmark Diner) on Cheshire Bridge Road; West Midtown’s Pauley’s Crepe Bar recently rolled up its last crepe; apparently there was not much wisdom in pumping $3MM+ into the Buckhead location of Sage Woodfire Tavern — it has shuttered in under a year; sports bar Three Dollar Cafe on Northside Drive showed its last game in February; the Buckhead Gordon Biersch location poured its last beer; longtime Sandy Spring favorite Food 101 just missed making it 20 years in business; the Duluth location of Dave and Buster’s went bust; the Chuy’s at Akers Mill Square said adios after less than two years of sizzling fajitas; and finally, beloved BBQ joint and James Beard nominee, B’s Cracklin’ is ashes. The award-winning restaurant caught fire in the middle of the night and was totally lost. Owners Bryan and Nikki Furman have vowed to rebuild; we wish them a quick return to the scene. Food for Thought, Encore Atlanta’s bimonthly dining column, keeps you up to date on culinary happenings around the city. Contributor David Danzig tells readers what’s well done, what’s simmering, and what’s toast. For more, visit the dining section of encoreatlanta.com.

ear Evan Hansen is a heart-scorching musical about a teen boy so bound up by anxiety and loneliness that he makes mistakes he can’t fix and gets stuck in the quicksand of social-media adulation. But eventually, he finds a way to leave self-loathing behind. It’s also about parents reaching for their kids as they disappear into their phones and laptops. And it’s about the struggle to connect in an era when it seems as if we’re all awash in emotional hyperbole online and off. Sounds like a fun time, right? In fact, the play, which has become a huge hit on Broadway since it opened there in December, is cathartic and real and often so funny it’s hard to believe that the catalytic event is the suicide of a kid we barely meet. The songs were written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the pair who just won an Oscar for their work on La La Land. This music reaches a generation that can seem jaded or desensitized having come of age with access to the entire world’s pain and tribulations in the palm of their hand. Ask one of the many teenagers in the audience if the play seems authentic and they can barely get the words out. They say things like, “I’m in shock, it’s so good.” And often, right behind them, is a parent who’s also feeling undone. I

lost it in the first act when the two stellar actors who play mothers of teens sing about feeling totally unqualified for the job of being a parent. “Does anybody have a map?” they cry. “Anybody maybe happen to know how the hell to do this?” That struggle feels like a hallmark of this particular moment in history. How do you learn to raise the first generation for whom the virtual world is just as important as their physical lives? There’s no precedent. How do you navigate it as a kid? No one knows how it’ll all work out. But one thing is clear, this complicates the traditional parent-teen disconnect. We parents will never understand what it’s like to grow up with two selves, one that must be constantly tended online and another that might be very different. Take Teresa Hall, who brought her daughter Avery from the Dallas area to New York City for her sweet-16 birthday. “I have two teenagers. You ask them every day, Are you O.K.? They always say, I’m good, I’m good, I’m good. But you never I-6

know. You don’t want to push them, you want them to open up on their own terms. But they don’t usually come to you.” In a show about feeling isolated, [it’s] moments when characters are able to bridge that gulf that hit hard. At one point, Evan Hansen (played by the spectacularly talented Ben Platt) and his mother Heidi Hansen (Rachel Bay Jones) are at last able to embrace each other. We see a mother trying to comfort a son who’s now too big to fit in her arms, and a son who finally allows her to get close. “That part with Evan and his mom when she was saying she’ll always be there,” says Avery. “That’s when I got teary.” Seeing the parents’ pain seemed to resonate with teens as much as with parents. And Rachel Bay Jones is able to unleash the kind of deep frustration and fear and vulnerability that most parents can’t post about on Facebook, or talk about with their friends. Avery’s mother gets emotional hearing her daughter talk

about the scene. “I’m surprised that [Avery] says that was the most touching part for her,” says Teresa. “It means that she knows that I’m always here for her.” As everyone crushes out of the theater past them, she wipes her eyes and jokes about starting to cry all over again. Dear Evan Hansen has an outsize following online. Fans post about how it changed the way they see anxiety and depression in themselves and others. They draw portraits of the cast, make art with the lyrics and share photos holding cards with the song title “You Will Be Found.” At least one person tattooed that phrase on their arm and shared it. While that digital community is a beautiful thing, the intensity of Evan Hansen is in an old-school interactive experience in which you show up in person and sit very close to whomever you came with. If you’re there with your child, you can sense the way he or she is reacting to what’s happening on stage. Your kid will know when you hold your breath, or let a sob slip out. It’s a visceral exchange, one that feels primal and rare. And like everything with kids, it’s fleeting. Soon enough everyone’s outside, turning on their phones and looking for their earbuds.

9. Go easy with the perfume and cologne, many people are highly allergic. 10. If you need assistance during the show, please go to your nearest volunteer usher. If additional assistance is needed, the usher will get the appropriate person to further help you. 11. Yes, the parking lot gets busy and public transportation is tricky, but leaving while the show is in progress or before the actors have taken their final bows is discourteous.

FOX FUN FACTS The Fox Theatre Ballrooms The Egyptian Ballroom, Grand Salon, and Spanish Room were all originally Shriner meeting spaces. Here are some other fun facts: • The Egyptian Ballroom was reserved for Shriner ceremonies and celebrations and the adjoining Grand Salon served as their library. • The 7,500-square foot Egyptian Ballroom’s original floor is hard rock maple. A custom-designed carpet with Egyptian symbols of the afterlife and resurrection now protects the maple floor.

• Depicted on the Egyptian Ballroom’s balcony is a scarab, or dung beetle, which was the symbol for the sun god Ra, who was thought to ward off evil. It is surrounded by the wings of Osiris, god of the underworld, afterlife, and resurrection. • Above the Egyptian Ballroom’s stage stretch the gilded and glazed wings of Osiris. A plaster intaglio panel of Ramses II subduing an enemy is the focal point of the stage.

• Although the symbols painted in the Egyptian Ballroom are actual hieroglyphics, when put together, they do not form any real phrases.

• In the 1970s, the walls of the Egyptian Ballroom were covered with several coats of paint obscuring the original stenciled designs. As years of paint were removed, vivid Egyptian symbols for life and rebirth were revealed.
