Warm, natural wood covers the floors and half-paneled walls at Napoleon’s Grill, where an exposed ceiling showcases decorative flourishes such as wagon wheels, wooden barrels, and dangling lantern lights. These embellishments, along with an expansive beer selection and Zagat-rated menu (very good to excellent), helped earn the eatery a Readers’ Choice award as the best pub in 2012 from Patch.com. High-top tables and sleek booths populate with platefuls of buttermilk-fried chicken, spicy crab cakes, and panko-crusted-eggplant sandwiches, as well as homemade accouterments such as soups and sauces. The chefs also smoke their own wings, slow roast their own pulled pork, and hand form their own burger patties into perfect circles or slightly off-kilter dodecahedrons.
This lovingly crafted comfort food pairs with the pub's laid-back atmosphere, which extends to friendly trivia tournaments and live acoustic-music sets throughout the week. The restaurant also strives to help the community by donating a portion its proceeds to local charities and schools.
In Farsi, colbeh means “cabin,” a word that encapsulates the inspiration for Colbeh Persian Kitchen & Bar’s rustic atmosphere and homestyle cuisine. Owner Syrus Rahimi and his two sons drew on traditional Iranian recipes and inspired flavor combinations to design a menu rich in seasoned kabobs, saffron basmati rice, and slow-cooked sirloin stews with sweet and savory sauces. Their hearty meals are joined by a hefty list of craft beers and specialty cocktails composed of inventive elements such as saffron-infused gin and vodka, cardamom syrup, and rose water. Inside, the restaurant is “sexy as all get out,” according to Eater Atlanta. A deep mahogany bar stretches nearly the length of the eatery as it races an exposed-brick wall to reach the back lounge. In the rear, dim lights, planked walls, and ship-like windows provide a soft ambiance that evokes the feel of a faraway cabin. Inside this rustic space, diners groove to live jazz every Thursday and feast their eyes on occasional appearances by belly dancers.
If you only came to Cafe Istanbul to eat, you'd be missing out on half the fun. Sure, there's a whole menu of savory Mediterranean dishes, including Turkish flatbreads layered with spiced meats, onions, and peppers. (In fact, the entrees are quite diverse, ranging from a casserole baked with rainbow trout to a mixed grill with meatballs and lamb chops.) But, as the festive decor indicates, there's plenty else happening here. Belly dancers regularly perform in the dining room beneath ceilings painted with flowers almost as colorful as their costumes. And a separate hookah menu lets guests partake in flavored tobaccos, filling the room with smoke that's almost as aromatic as the burps of a dragon who just ate potpourri.
Natural light pours in through Mint 2 Thai-Sushi's front windows, catching the wafting aromas of roasted duck, shrimp, and salmon in Thai chili and zesty mango sauces. Diners can play tabletop shuffleboard with spicy-tuna rolls and strips of fresh-cut sashimi. The full menu holds close to 200 items and even offers handy icons to ease selection?a chili pepper indicates spicy dishes, a star indicates popular dishes, and a chef's hat indicates dishes that fit snugly beneath a chef's hat.
