It's time for a new edition (easy there, Bobby Brown) of the Thrillist 47, giving you the best new and new-ish places to eat and drink.

That kind of attention to detail is evident in the dishes, too, like the the assorted nigiri, spider and shrimp tempura rolls, and changing desserts that have included a Yuzu lemon meringue with blackberries and creme anglaise.

36. Grindhouse Killer Burgers 1842 Piedmont Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30324 (Buckhead)

Grindhouse Killer Burgers is kind of like the reading a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book, but it's better because there's food involved. Orders are customized from scratch from the meat (beef/turkey/veggie) to the size of the patties to the toppings (of which there are a dozen), but if you aren't feeling creative, there are a handful of burger "styles," like the Hillbilly with brisket chili and the bleu cheese-heavy Yankee. A lot of folks drop by and get theirs to go, but they miss out on the kung fu movies that are always playing on the flatscreen tvs.
