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.

For Executive Chef Kochi Chiba, preparing a dinner at Silk is easy as pie stuffed with crab meat, drizzled in berry ponzu sauce, and baked in a cloud of lightning. By focusing on traditional dishes from a variety of regions, Silk’s extensive menu gathers symphonies of savory spice alongside elegantly simple flavor profiles to accommodate a range of visiting palates. Sample one of Silk's Pan-Asian-style tapas plates such as Shanghai spring rolls—mixed veggies and seafood encased in a fried pastry shell with mango vinaigrette, ($6)—or a salt and pepper chicken wing served up Hong Kong style ($6). Silk also serves up adorable sliders for dainty handheld consumption, such as the tender marinated Kobe burger sliders ($12). Heartier dishes consist of noodle or fried rice dishes ($11–$15), sushi and sashimi dinners ($18–$40), or a variety of main plates featuring savory Korean beef short ribs ($24), a refreshing duo of diver scallops and shrimp with garlic butter ($22), and more.

Modifying menu items has irritated servers for centuries, directly leading to the Colfax Riot of 1873, the Attica Prison Riot of 1971, and the decline of R & B music. Today’s Groupon avoids world-altering events by letting you orchestrate your own orders: $10 gets you $25 worth of food and drink at The Real Chow Baby, Atlanta’s first and only create-your-own-stir-fry restaurant. Chow Baby is believed to be impervious to the harm of the natural world and all human weaponry, but rumors exist of a Nap Baby, born at the exact same moment and radiating concentric circles of pure, narcoleptic calm. Perhaps, if they are one day reunited, this madness will finally end. Until then, color-coded Chow Baby alert levels hold steady at fuschia: wary.

Owned and operated by siblings, Noodle serves up pan-Asian cuisine aside fun cocktails and sleek décor. A veritable cross-continental culinary campaign, the menu blends flavors of Korea, China, Japan, Vietnam, and Thailand, but eschews that oft-ignored middle child of Eurasia, Stupidistand. Commence your journey with the rolls and dumplings sampler, a mini smorgasbord of curry rolls, shrimp-basil rolls, and spring rolls plus veggie or pork dumplings ($12). For the main course, sink incisors into entrees such as tender chicken (or tofu), bathed in a coconut green curry sauce with potatoes, avocado, cashews, and rice ($11), or classic Thai peanut noodles with shrimp ($10). A steaming bowl of Pho Nam soup brims with thin beef and meatballs, rice noodles, onion, and Thai basil with a side of bean sprouts, cilantro, lime, and jalapeños for dressing ($8–$9). Ample portions ensure that you have leftovers to take home to feed the marmot militia that trains in your basement.

The Oceanaire Seafood Room is a great special occasion restaurant located right in the heart of midtown Atlanta. Whether you’re in the mood for pistachio-crusted Costa Rican mahi mahi or simply a high-end version of fish ‘n’ chips, this restaurant will satisfy your seafood cravings in an elegant, upscale setting. It’s an excellent choice for an impressive business dinner or a graduation celebration. You can also meet up with friends at the bar for happy hour and sample the less expensive menu, which includes shrimp ‘n’ chips, crabcake sliders and plenty of other yummy samplers along with beer specials. Valet parking will set you back $5, but that’s not bad for the area. The blue lighting and impressively sized fish on the walls give the space the appropriate nautical touches, while monogrammed plates and lots of wine shelving lead to a decidedly upscale feel.
