To ensure you're full/not-thirsty, we're giving you some infallibly easy dish & drink recipes from top-notch ATL mixologists and chefs -- true authorities on munchies, even if they're not quite at Jonathan Babineaux's level.

Courtesy of Rosa's ATL exec chef, this steak, blue cheese & pepper-topped snack platter nixes the traditional nacho base for two large bags of thick-cut chips -- also the name of Erik Estrada and Larry Wilcox's in-the-works reunion episode.

From Jason Hill, Wisteria

From Brandon King, Gold Room
