Holeman & Finch Public House has changed the face of Atlanta's dining scene since opening in 2008. From the outset, H&F's cocktail program set off a citywide race to blend obscure spirits into crowd-pleasing tipples. The 10 p.m. off-menu cheeseburger established a widely imitated gold standard. The house charcuterie program, once a unique feature, has inspired a whole league of competitors. The menu is unapologetically meat-centric with an extra focus on offal dishes and Southern-inspired small plates. Even after all these years, H&F's carefully crafted cocktails continue to be destination-worthy on their own.

Even after all these years, the fiery nuances of Szechuan cuisine at Marietta's Tasty China — and the mild intestinal discomfort that can accompany it — is still totally worth the drive. Despite many personnel changes since opening in 2006, Tasty China has managed to keep churning out the kind of hot and numbing, tongue-tingling fireworks that keep us venturing back out to the 'burbs for more. Try the burning ma la burrito-like beef roll or a bowl of bubbling red peppers and tender white fish. And don't forget the crispy cilantro fish rolls. Sure Tasty China has a just-barely ITP sister restaurant in Sandy Springs, but the trek out of town and the divey, strip mall feel of the original only make the Szechuan treasures that much more enticing. $$
