The Three Faces of Six Feet Under

Pub-Style Seafood

Raw, steamed, stewed, fried, grilled, or baked—at Six Feet Under, you can get your seafood prepared exactly how you like it. The raw bar serves up three types of oysters, a perfect prelude to warmer meals of steamed mussels, blackened catfish, or crispy fish and chips. Chefs fully embrace traditional Southern flavors with their oyster po’ boys and fried green tomatoes, and they also dip south of the border to whip up tacos filled with catfish, shrimp, calamari, or chicken.

Craft Beer

At Six Feet Under, you can find your big-name standbys—Budweiser, Coors, Miller—but only by the bottle. The restaurant’s roughly two-dozen taps are reserved almost exclusively for local, domestic, and international craft beers, many available by the pitcher. This strikes a nice balance between the beer connoisseurs and the happy-hour crowds, a harmony that extends to the cocktail list's eclectic roster of margaritas, top-shelf martinis, and bawdily named oyster shooters.

Rooftop Bars

Everything on the menu pairs well with views of the twinkling Atlanta skyline, which is visible from the rooftop bars at both locations. The two spots were collectively named some of America’s Best Outdoor Bars by Travel + Leisure magazine. Views of the historic Oakland Cemetery, built in 1850, might sway you towards the original Grand Park location—and clue you in to the origins of the pub’s macabre moniker.

Strings of hot-pepper-shaped lights hang over the bar at Mezcalitos Cocina & Tequila Bar's main location, where they're accented by colorful toy parrots and bullfighting posters. This lively decor helps distract from the lurking menace behind the bar: a housemade 10-pepper tequila known as Devil's Water. Adventurous sorts can gulp it straight as a shot, and more timid diners can take its spicy edge off by blending it with one of the restaurant's other signature tequilas. It's a tradition so popular that Mezcalitos has carried it over to their newly opened Grant Park location, too.

When it comes to the food, everything on the menu is made from scratch, from the hand-rolled tamales to the cilantro-infused rice and mole sauces. Chipotle-cheese grits complement grilled ribeye steak, and oranges and cinnamon add an unexpected sweetness to the slow-cooked red pork mole. Vegetarians and vegans can fill up on tofu tacos or salads piled high with pumpkin seeds, grilled zucchini, and roasted red peppers.

Jack Sobel was homesick?and a bit hungry. He'd recently left New Mexico for Atlanta, and often found himself prowling streets lined with pizzerias, taco shacks, and international restaurants, hoping to find the southwestern dishes he'd grown up on. Memories of sweet yellow Navajo corn sauce and fiery chorizo lingered at the forefront of his mind, but most potently missed were the Hatch green chiles so integral to southwestern cooking. So after searching in vain, he decided to take matters into his own hands. Agave Restaurant was born.

Every week, Jack has fresh green and red chiles shipped directly to his open-air kitchen from Hatch, New Mexico. He combines these with locally sourced ingredients to craft contemporary southwestern specialties lauded by media outlets ranging from Creative Loafing to USA Today. Pulling from his years working alongside Mexican and Navajo chefs, he whips up smoky blue-corn chicken enchiladas, tender green-chile meatloaf, and crawfish pasta showered in spicy red-chile cream, all washed down with the specialty margaritas named as some of the finest in the city by CBS Atlanta. The margaritas' secret? Freshly squeezed lime juice and 100 different varieties of tequila.

As Jack and his chefs labor in the kitchen, diners await meals out in the airy bi-level dining room, where colorful paintings, vibrant tapestries, and rustic crosses speckle the sand-colored walls. The restaurant is housed in a historically important building?the original General Store for the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill, which once peddled groceries and essentials to shoppers in exchange for pennies and magic beans.

Cartoon skulls color the ragged wooden sign outside Matador's, creating a rustic, yet playful, atmosphere where cuisine from the Michoacán region treats taste buds to an authentic taste of Mexico. Pulled pork, tilapia, and tofu are just a sample of what's stuffed into the tortillas of 14 types of tacos, which sate south-of-the-border cravings quicker than a deep-fried bolo tie. Combination plates and vegetarian options round out the menu at the restaurant's two locations, both of which offer spacious patio seating. At the newer Glenwood Park location, patrons can relax in a separate bar area as flat-screen TVs glimmer across intoxicating bottles of top-shelf spirits.

A smooth synthesis of Louisianan flavors and hearty Italian influences, Nawlins’ soul-stirring menu of home-cooked Cajun and creole-Italian cuisine culls many of its robust flavors from fresh, organic ingredients harvested by locally sourced producers. Kick-start communal feasts over an appetizer such as a spread of creole calamari, crowned with crumbled goat cheese and fiery house-made marinara, or a dish of fried alligator, served with a piquant dipping sauce ladled from the Everglades’ subterranean spice pools. With palates primed, diners can peruse the entree menu’s traditional creole dishes, including whole shrimp slathered in a rich Worcestershire-wine-butter sauce. Those pining for seafood can order Nawlins' gumbo, a maritime mélange of crawfish, shrimp, crab, and veggies. Unsheathe steak knives when tackling 12–14 ounces of blackened rib eye, or use your hands to snatch one of the restaurant's po boy sandwiches, jam-packed with fried oysters, italian meatballs, and crab cake. Diners finish with Hurricane cocktails from Nawlins’ full-service bar, a fruity rum concoction ideal for toasting to an upcoming vacation to northern Quebec.
