Cliff's top 10 Atlanta restaurants

Posted By on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 9:57 AM


It's time for my annual list of my 10 favorite restaurants. As usual, I remind you that "favorites" are not typically new. Nor are they "bests." These restaurants' moderate price and relative proximity to my home in Grant Park make them regular destinations. Except for the No. 1 restaurant at the end of the list, they are not in any particular order.

Six restaurants have fallen off last year's list for a variety of reasons. I still frequently go to Spoon and Holy Taco, both in East Atlanta, but I'd like to see more new dishes. Las Palmeras was sold and reopened as Cruzado, which I like a lot, but it's too soon to call it a fave. Lunacy Black Market is still a favorite but dealing with the parking has made it an infrequent destination. Octane and the Little Tart Bakery in Grant Park are perfect, but rather expensive and not terribly Wi-Fi friendly. Miso Izakaya is still a big favorite, but it has become a special-occasion restaurant (except for the inexpensive ramen lunches). Finally, La Pietra Cucina, my No. 1 choice last year, closed.
