Q&A with Todd Miranda, Owner

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?

One of my personal favorites is the Downtown Chicken (The French call this a ?fricassee?).

We start by boiling some orzo pasta while saut?ing thin-sliced carrots, ham, and a pinch of garlic in a mouthwatering light cream sauce. This dish is topped with a full chicken breast that has been marinated and chargrilled to perfection.

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

Since 2008, Downtown Grill has been crafting dishes with fresh ingredients in an upscale-casual eatery. We also serve a collection of imported wines, beers, and mixed drinks.

Restaurants are sometimes criticized for trying to do too many things at once, but Nak's Country Kitchen seems to strike the perfect balance. In addition to being a Southern family restaurant, it's also a sports bar. A cafeteria-style buffet lets diners choose their own portions of comfort-food specialties that include country-fried steak, barbecue chicken, and smothered pork chops, along with accompanying sides such as mac 'n' cheese and collard greens. Meanwhile, in the sports bar, guests can tuck into wings and burgers while catching games on flat-screen TVs. To amp up the excitement, Nak's also hosts events such as bingo on Monday nights and a live DJ on Friday nights.

The word "RuChDa" cobbles together letters of each of the founders' three children, and is just one of 25 things they've whipped up from scratch. The other 24? Wing sauces that the team spent months perfecting. Flavors range from conventional staples like hot barbecue and original hot to award-winning inventions such as honey garlic pepper and honey cajun. Those sauces can also be tossed with bite-sized pieces of boneless chicken breast or crispy chicken tenders, or ladled onto a slice of wedding cake. To wash it all down, RuChDa has also created its own line of signature drinks known as Rev-jitos and Rev-ladas, which come in many flavors and taste a lot like mojitos and coladas, minus the alcohol.

Third-generation baker Lorre Jacobs Daniel proved that she inherited the family's penchant for sweets when she won The Food Network's Cupcake Wars while representing the state of Georgia. After 20 years of baking in various shops around the U.S., she opened Southern Cosmopolitan Baking Company in Atlanta, where she crafts homemade goodies that pay homage to her mother's Chicago roots and her father's French-Quarter heritage.

Naturally, cupcakes are Daniel's specialty. Mainstays include red velvet, chocolate overload, citrus apricot, and coke classic, but the shop rotates weekly flavors too, such as bananas foster, strawberry lemonade, and campfire s'mores. The bakery's repertoire also includes cookies, cakes, and southern-style specialty sweets including caramel cinnamon rolls, peach cobbler, and bolo ties made of fondant. On another sweet note, Daniel also gives back to the local community by providing sponsorship to start-up bakeries and running an internship program with Fulton County Schools.

Nikki's Delightful Treats stocks its pantry with local and seasonal ingredients to flavor its cupcakes, cake pops, pies, and other confections. Buttercream frosting tops cupcakes in flavors such as carrot cake, marble, and alcohol-infused coconut rum, and a rainbow of cake pops double as marimba mallets in a pinch. Golden lattices embrace pies such as apple and blackberry, and flowers, ribbons, and other adornments decorate cakes.
