1. Pijiu Belly 678 10th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

The Korean Ramyun bowl at this new Westside location crams more ingredients in front of you than an all-the-way hash brown order at WaHoo. Bacon, carrots, fried eggs, and anything else they can find cover velvety noodles and a deliciously dark broth before inevitably finding their way to your belly.

2. Atlas Buckhead 88 W Paces Ferry Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30305

It's dinner-only at this mocha leather-heavy Buckhead base to the St. Regis, where the wine buckets, white tablecloths, and fine cutlery should tell what you should expect to pay... and what they expect you to wear. And if it doesn't, there's the 35-day aged ribeye, venison tenderloin, lamb loin, and a $25 burger.

3. Republic Social House 437 Memorial Dr SE, Atlanta, GA 30312

Enjoy food (think creative sandwiches, appetizers, and classic brunch options ) and drinks alongside carnival-style games. Grab a pint and play ring toss, Jenga, and beer pong at this Grant Park favorite, which also boasts weekly menu specials and relaxing rooftop patio.

4. The Whelan 1133 Huff Rd NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

The Whelan serves up an American tavern menu, but with a South-Africanized twist. For beer there's 28 drafts and 60+ bottles ranging from Hell or High Watermelon wheat to La Fin Du Monde tripel. For food there's the likes of red curry chicken w/ veggies over jasmine rice and pan-seared crimson red snapper. It is all definitely worth stopping by for.

5. Hi-Five Diner 903 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309

This breakfast-all-the-time place is also all an all-day lunch and dinner place for when you want something a little more crafted and substantial than the standard scattered, smothered, and covered. A full espresso and cocktail bars keep you stimulated, relaxed, or whatever combination of both you need.

6. Southbound 5394 Peachtree Rd, Chamblee, GA 30341

People might not be used to peanuts boiled in pork broth or using avocado as a base for their chicken salad, but they better start liking it soon because Southbound is all about soul food with a twist.
