A native Atlantan living Downtown with my family and loving it.
Keepin' it shlappy.
This is my favorite restaurant in the downtown area. I like EatTooMuch's comment that it has a “dinner in my parlor” feeling. I agree. It's like someone opened a small, quiet-but-informal restaurant in a wing of their house.
Everything I've had here is wonderful but a favorite is the garlicky shrimp -- we always have to order bread so we can soak up the delicious broth from the shrimp bowl.
I love the Hotel Row location. It's so cool that there's a great restaurant located in this spot that's rich in history but is otherwise, I'm sure, a fairly challenging area to operate a business like this.

"Seen these in many other cities; this attendenace is pretty dismal..."
I disagree. In October of last year, LA held a 7.5 mile CicLAvia event in the middle of the city and it drew 100k cyclists, skaters & pedestrians. That's average for their CicLAvias.
LA has a much higher population density than Atlanta. LA also has 350 miles of bike lanes in the city versus Atlanta's smaller amount: 60 miles of bike lanes & 69 miles of trails.
That Atlanta was able to draw the same number of participants, on a shorter route than the one LA had, is very impressive.
What a cool success story this is. And they really are making the best beers in their history -- I'm very happy to see them brewing some exciting new things and taking chances. Nice work Austin and happy birthday to Red Brick.
Nice writeup, Max. Making sure there's a plan for adequate alternatives before closing up the shelter is important.
Related: I'm still waiting for Reed's promised comprehensive plan to address homelessness (*not* only homeless veterans) and panhandling together -- the one he said he'd have for us years ago after he opted to veto the proposed panhandling ordinance.
So gross. It's like the mafia.
And all this underhanded nonsense is happening within the pretense of "support for the business community," which is just an extra slap in the face to the breweries who are being restricted.
In addition to those 5 rural hospitals that have closed, about 15 more are teetering on the edge.
Deal's response? To allow "downsized" rural hospitals to exist.
So don't worry, rural people of Georgia in need of a hospital -- there's a Deal-appointed committee working on that project now! Just try to stop the bleeding for the time being (apply pressure!). Your new, smaller hospital may re-open in a few months. Or years. We'll see.
With state policies like these that hurt rural poor the most, I can't figure out how rural counties in Georgia remain so "red."
Will these shops be inside the stations, past the fare gates?
Also have to give a shout out to Atlanta Larry who's done some good history blogging over the years
