2) Grant Central Pizza No, it's not the best pizza and pasta in town, but I eat here so often I'd be remiss not including it. I'm talking once or twice a week since it's a brief walk from home. What attracts me most here are the specials (although the restaurant tends to run out by 9 every night). Sometimes, they're kinda weird and sometimes the restaurant gets on jags that it won't let go of. But dishes like mushroom ravioli in a cream sauce or chicken over pasta in something like a puttanesca sauce are pleasing, as are the soups and salads of the day. If I don't make it in time for those, my default dish is linguine with meatballs. 451 Cherokee Ave. 404-523-8900.
1) Pura Vida This has become my favorite restaurant in the last year. I don't get to go as often as I'd like, but I always find chef/owner Hector Santiago's cooking, based on Spanish and Latin American cuisines, brilliantly conceived. An example: ceviche of lemon-lime marinated trout loin, aji mixto jelly, celery juice, milk, and cancha corn. Always check out the specials. The restaurant, which has the perfect wine list for a tapas bar, hosts tango performances on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. I'd like to see some flamenco, too, but tango is nearly as sexy. 656 N. Highland Ave. 404-870-9797. www.puravidatapas.com.
