We’re sure you will agree when you read—or should we say devour—this issue, the most drool-worthy one of the year: the Foodie issue! We spent the last few months scouring the streets in search of the most delicious bites Midtown has to offer, and we found more than enough material to fill these pages. Narrowing down all the sensational local flavors and global cuisines in town was no easy task, but we are confident this issue is an accurate representation of our reputation as a true dining destination. While we don’t like to play favorites, the Foodie issue is near and dear to our hearts. After all, food is not only nourishing (and delicious), but it also brings people together—whether it’s a special anniversary dinner, a much-needed lunch break with coworkers, a friend’s birthday party or even a casual weeknight meal with family. Food is often considered one of life’s great pleasures. Consider this issue your foodie guide to Midtown, featuring the best places to

FEEDEL BISTRO, WHICH CELEBRATED ITS ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY IN SEPTEMBER, BRINGS

AUTHENTIC

ETHIOPIAN

AND

ERITREAN FOOD TO THE HEART OF MIDTOWN. Owners and siblings Tamar Telahun and Simon Gebru were born and raised in Ethiopia and grew up eating their mother’s flavorful food. When they decided to open Feedel Bistro, they went first to the experts: their mother and sister. The majority of the recipes actually come from their mother, Meaza Habtemichael, who was born in Eritrea. 18

Midtown Lifestyle | October 2019


“Food is in our blood,” Tamar says. “I call my mom a chef, even though she doesn’t have a formal degree. She always loved cooking, and that is how she shares her love.” The other recipes come from their sister, Abeba Telahun, who is a part-time chef at the restaurant. The other chefs have been trained to cook these dishes by their mother and sister. The varied menu consists of entrees for meat-eaters and vegetarians, plus plenty for vegans. While growing up in Ethiopia, Tamar was eating vegan before she even realized what vegan was. It was only when she arrived in America in her early teens that she realized what the diet was called and how popular it was. But, there are many dishes for nonvegans to enjoy as well. The number-one selling dish is Mom’s Special Gomen Be’siga, which is cubed lamb mixed with fresh collard greens and simmered in a mild sauce with seasoned butter, herbs and spices. The second is Sagla’s Spris, with a choice of tender meat or fish (beef, lamb, chicken or salmon), stripped and sautéed in a well-balanced red berbere sauce, with onions, garlic  and tomatoes. Berbere is the number one flavoring in Ethiopian cooking. There are tons of spices that go into it after the pepper is ground. The third most popular dish, according to Tamar, is Doro Wet, which is a spicy stew and traditional delicacy with a red pepper sauce, cooked with an assortment of spices and served with one tender chicken leg, one hard-boiled egg and ayeb (homemade farmer’s cheese).

Some of these include the Hotel Indigo, The American Hotel, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, STATS Brewpub, Twin Smokers BBQ  and Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria. Additional properties are located in Chattanooga, Tennessee; Madison, Wisconsin; and Port Arkansas, Texas. In 1999, David Marvin, Legacy Ventures’ president, was awarded the 1999 Spaulding Award from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for his part in the revitalization of Atlanta with the development of the Embassy Suites and condominium complex near Centennial Olympic Park. The company’s latest restaurant project, Dos Bocas (“two mouths”), which offers Tex-Mex and Cajun food, opened recently in Atlanta. Their menu features dishes such as Bayou crispy shrimp, blackened chicken, Cajun catfish, smoked pork posole, shrimp and crab campechana, po’boys, muffuletta, crawfish etouffee, and a New Orleans-style barbecue shrimp dish slathered in Worcestershire sauce, butter, lemon  and Creole seasoning. Diners can also enjoy tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, chicken Toluca, red beans and rice, jambalaya and more Tex-Mex favorites. Salads and soups, including gumbo, and kids meals are also on the menu. “It’s threading together the tastes of the Gulf Coast with those kinds of spices and flavoring you would expect from Tex-Mex and Cajun food,” says Jeff Sime, vice president of operations for Legacy Ventures.

salt and tequila in an oversized custom-made mug, Prickly Pear margaritas, and Lone Star margaritas, plus Sazeracs, Hurricanes, daiquiris and of course, fruity sangrias. For beer drinkers, there’s Dos Equis Ambar, Mucha Lucha Lager, Corona, Sam Adams, Miller and many more. The cuisine of Dos Bocas was the inspiration of Brian Bullock, the chief operating officer of Legacy Ventures, who at one time was in charge of running restaurants in Houston and New Orleans, where he developed a love of the cuisines, and Chef Christopher Blobaum, vice president of culinary for Legacy Ventures, who has worked in Texas and has also spent time in New Orleans. When they realized they wanted to open a restaurant serving both Tex-Mex and Cajun, the two, along with Jeff and corporate chef, Matt Decker, went on a five-day road trip all the way from New Orleans to Corpus Christi and Puerto Ramses. Jeff says they ate their way through all the cities, trying to find the right dishes they wanted to serve in the new restaurant. They frequented not only other restaurants but also truck stops and little roadside taco stands. In Louisiana, they made a stop on Avery Island, where they make Tabasco and hot sauce, to find some that were just right for their restaurant. The group also traveled to Mexico to pick out the tequila that they would be serving in their cocktails. They did a lot of research to find the best ingredients and dishes to use in Dos Bocas, and they covered all this land in only five days! “There are a lot of things on the food and drinks menu that were inspired by our road trip,” Jeff says. Designed by ASD|SKY, another Atlanta firm, the 8,000-square-foot, two-story restaurant includes a  patio overlooking the new green space at Centennial Olympic Park, which is right across the street. The décor is fun and festive, with its mix of Texas, Mexican and New Orleans influences. The commissioned artwork hanging on the walls shows Mexican, Texan and Louisianan themed images, and a unique and whimsical wall collage of all things Mexican, Texan and Louisianan is a highlight in the restaurant. The venue is also available for private events such as holiday parties, school reunions, sporting events or cocktail receptions. There’s a semi-private dining room that can hold up to 20 guests, or a bar area that can fit up to 60. For a much larger party, they will rent out the whole restaurant, which can hold as many as 350 guests. “It’s really bringing quality Tex-Mex food and something different in a Cajun restaurant as well, which is something that downtown Atlanta does not have,” Jeff says.
