Bon Appétit blog raves about two Atlanta restaurants

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 1:50 AM

Bon Appétit's "Foodist" visits Atlanta and files rave reviews, replete with pics, of near-neighbors Varasano's and Holeman & Finch. Excerpts:

Varasano's won't win any design awards for hipness; it's a few steps up from an airport food court. (I was reassured, though, to notice the girl sitting next to me wearing a t-shirt that read "Shakespeare hates your emo poems.") But never mind that. I challenge you to find me a better pizza pie...

H + F's menu is devoted to small plates: trad Southern meets trad pub. Cornmeal Fried Oysters were perfect.  One poached egg served with a small, thick piece of house bacon and a Johnnycake was satisfying--and just right size.  Best of all was the house-made currywurst served with Savannah Red Pea dahl, a brilliantly balanced melding of flavors and smart nod to England's love of Indian food.
