Serving American favorites and Old World classics in a comfortable, chalet-style restaurant, Seven Gables crafts a refined menu of palate-pleasing seafood, pasta, poultry, and steak dishes. Harmonize both land and sea with a filet mignon and lobster tail duet (market price), or plunge face first into the savory chicken wellington stuffed with tasso Louisiana ham, risotto, and asiago before being swaddled in a flaky pastry ($14.95). Meat masticators can enjoy their lamb romarin roasted with a rub of fresh-roasted garlic and in-house garden rosemary ($22.95).

The specialists at Sushi Gallery deal in edible art: white ceramic plates are the backdrop for pink tuna belly, sea urchin, and piles of bright roe tucked neatly into rolls, dashed with a sweet or spicy reduction or a savory seafood sauce. The menu is lined with the day's freshest catches and the lures used to snag them. The chefs here even invite you to get DIY with your dinner—feel free to design custom rolls or select surf clams or quail eggs for your own unique sashimi platters. The sushi is served alongside Japanese classics such as grilled hibachi dinners and udon noodles.

On the first Monday of every month, the restaurant hosts a sake sampling. The resident sake master pours sixteen varieties of hot and cold brews described as "sprightly and fresh" or carrying "complex notes of smoke and mushroom."

Sushi Gallery's small dining room is decorated to feel intimate. Crimson linens cover the tables, which are topped with pendant lamps. The windows reach from the ceiling almost all the way to the garnet floor, screened by a black, geometrically shaped metal grate.:m]]

Growing up, brothers Ken and Jimmy Chen never wanted to be part of the restaurant business. Their dad was a chef, other family members were restaurateurs, and they wanted to do something different. But as they got older, they couldn't help but take stock of what they would do differently or better if they had their own restaurant, and lo and behold, they grew into the profession themselves. After helming a few restaurants in Connecticut, they relocated to Georgia to open Rice Box, a casual eatery that celebrates pan-Asian cuisine and the fine art of chewing.

Even the appetizer selection is diverse, including everything from Japanese edamame to thai coconut soup. The entree list even more so?Singapore noodles entangle eggs and veggies, green onions color Mongolian beef, and spicy thai basil comes with a choice of beef, shrimp, chicken, or tofu. Though new to town, Rice Box has already proved to be a conscientious part of the community: Ken and Jimmy donated proceeds from their grand-opening raffle to the Snellville organization Give Hunger the Boot.

Smell is the sense most closely tied to memory. Perhaps that's why Mise En Place Georgia works to cultivate a sense of place through freshly cooked food. Owner and chef Chris Britton draws from more than 30 years of restaurant-industry experience to craft custom meals for everything from private dinners to small-scale events. He plans every menu and shops for all the necessary ingredients, buying all his produce the day of to ensure freshness and to keep the other chefs from raiding his pantry. Though each menu is unique, Britton has created spreads of herbed fish and pork, lasagna, and jambalaya as well as enticing dessert pastries.

Q&A with Maria, Owner

What sets your business apart from your competition?

We are the only business in the Greater Atlanta area that produces fresh mozzarella and Italian-style stretched cheeses, such as burrata and scamorza.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?

We decided on a mozzarella business, as we could not find any good mozzarella in or around Atlanta. So, first was the need. Second, I grew up in the Campania region of Italy and my next door neighbor had a buffalo mozzaralla farm. This reminds me of all the beautiful things of my childhood and the smell of my mom's kitchen.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Our fresh mozzarella is all natural [and contains] no artificial ingredients or preservatives. And it is vegetarian, because it is made with a vegetable rennet (cheese starter).

What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?

We have customers that buy from us every week of the year, and I think this is the best reaction you can expect.

What?s your favorite part about your job?

Seeing the happy and surprised face of the customers when they first try our cheese.
