2. 4th & Swift 621 North Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30308 (Old 4th Ward)

Located in Atlanta's historic Old 4th Ward district, 4th & Swift serves up a seasonally changing menu, with options (sometimes) including pan-roasted snapper, veal chops, and spinach tortellini. You know it'll be fresh: Chef Jay Swift and his culinary team source ingredients from their on-site garden, nearby micro-farms, and several local and regional food purveyors.

3. Joystick Gamebar 427 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312 (Old 4th Ward)

This “barcade” is wild with its tonics. Joystick co-owner Brandon Ley has meticulously put together a top-notch program that takes fortified wines as seriously as it takes random cosplay parties and the hosting of weird local podcasts, plus sexy liquid inventions like the Donkey Punch.

4. Ration and Dram 130 Arizona Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

Andy Minchow graduated from Holeman & Finch into his own spacious place on Arizona Ave. Seasonally-based Southern fare includes everything from duck salad to a “fried bologna cup”. They aim to balance their comfort good with fresh veggie juices and homemade sodas, so use that to counteract your fried pork chop with mayo.
