Fried, on a bun, grilled over coals, chopped up in a salad - there are many ways to get your fix of one of our favorite proteins, chicken. There’s no shortage of establishments to get your hands on the glorious bird, and one of my favorite hoods for getting a great meal, the Westside, contains a number of fun choices to satisfy that itch. Chef Asha Gomez has been satisfying food lovers with a fun, Indian take on the Southern favorite with her Kerala chicken and waffles at events with her event series, the Spice Route Supper Club. Before her restaurant even opened for business, the word had gotten out about the dish and long lines formed to get a sample of the treat at the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival. Since the festival, her Westside restaurant, Cardamom Hill ( 1700 Northside Drive, Atlanta, 404-549-7012) has been serving the dish, along with other favorites fusing Southern dishes with the flavors of the Kerala region in India and other influences from her travels. Patrons won’t find the buffet tables common at many Indian restaurants, the James Beard semifinalist’s eatery contains a full bar, a thoughtful wine selection and handsome wood furniture. The menu changes often, and a few of my favorites include fruit salad, duck and plantain croquettes, and of course the chicken and waffles. Her take on pork vindaloo, a pork shoulder dish with Portuguese influences makes it hard for me to order the dish elsewhere. Dessert at Cardamom Hill, like the rest of the menu can change seasonally but one after-dinner constant would be their chai tea. In an era where prepackaged chai runs rampant, it’s refreshing to try the spiced tea beverage with steamed milk the proper way, with fresh spices. I’d urge anyone who has tried chai elsewhere and wasn’t a fan, to definitely give it a second chance. A short drive down the road will take you to Chef Giovanni di Palma’s burgeoning Little Italy complex not far from the Georgia Tech campus. His pizza restaurant Antico Pizza Napoletana helped set off the Atlanta pizza wars four years ago and depending on who you ask, he could be crowned the king. Not one to rest on his laurels, he set out to do for chicken what he did for pizza with his new establishment, Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano (1099 Hemphill Ave. N.W., Atlanta. 404-347-3874) . His new establishment, right next to Antico and Caffe Gio dishes out Italian dishes using fresh Bell and Evans chickens, raised without antibiotics. The components to the signature Sorrento chicken dish are simple - lemons, garlic, wild oregano and olive oil, yet the results are extraordinary. Fans of Antico’s popular diavola pizza with spicy calabrian peppers will delight in a similar chicken dish with garlic and fresh crushed pepper In addition to the main event chicken dishes, restaurant goers will find soup, pasta dishes and of course dessert with cannoli and tiramisu rounding out the bill.

Fall has arrived and if you haven’t made it out to the Atlanta Beltline yet this year, now is the perfect time to explore and enjoy some of the city’s best food and drink along the way. The Beltline is a 33 mile ring around the city that connects neighborhoods with multi-use trails along with planned transit. The network is still under construction, however there are many paths that have been completed and there are many establishments for eating and imbibing along the two mile long Eastside Trail which connects the Virginia Highland, Midtown, Poncey-Highland, Old Fourth Ward and Inman Park neighborhoods. Long before the current trend of artisan pizzas took over the Atlanta scene, Fritti, has been plying its trade in what was then a quiet corner of the Old Fourth Ward. Fritti’s inviting patio, just a block away from the Beltline offers authentic Neapolitan pizzas, with my favorites being the arancini appetizer and their Regina Margherita pizza. Servers are happy to offer a wine pairing from their all-Italian list. 309 North Highland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307 Phone: (404) 880-9559 Brunch wouldn’t be complete for many without a cocktail or two, and The Albert - a casual bar with an open kitchen and great pub food have a number of great libations on their list. Try the In The Shade cocktail, a great alternative to a mimosa that features gin, prosecco, citrus and hints of vanilla. On the food side of the menu, try their bacon waffles served with bourbon caramel syrup and topped with their popular smoked wings. The Albert’s popular diner burger gets a brunch twist on the weekends with a fried egg, bacon and barbecue hollandaise. 918 Austin Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307 Phone: (404) 872-4990 For those that prefer to DIY, a trip to Savi Urban Market, nestled between the two previous restaurants will allow you to create your own gourmet meal option for dining along the Beltline to take in the Atlanta skyline views. The market carries produce, fine cheeses and assorted beverages including a hard-to-find ginger beers made by Bruce Cost and local beer ice cream purveyor, Frozen Pints. Sandwiches in the deli are a cut above your typical corner store with house roasted meats and Holeman and Finch bread. 287 Elizabeth St NE Atlanta, GA 30307 Phone: (404) 869-1818 Energetic restaurant TWO urban licks sits directly on the Beltline and pairs its soulful Sunday brunch menu with live blues. Their patio offers skyline views and plenty of people watching to go with popular dishes including salmon chips, brioche beignets, pork belly and creamy grits with smoked gouda and double smoked bacon. 820 Ralph McGill Blvd NE, Atlanta, GA 30306 Phone: (404) 522-4622 An afternoon on the Beltline wouldn’t be complete without a popsicle from Poncey Highland’s own King of Pops. They’ve grown from a single popsicle stand on Highland Avenue to locations throughout the Southeast. Look out for their stand along the Eastside Trail and check out their fall flavors Apple Pie a la Mode and Pumpkin Pie. Bernina and Elizabeth St Atlanta, GA 30307 Phone: (404) 507-6774Read More
Nothing beats a real girls’ night out. Thankfully, Atlanta has plenty of perfect spots for you and your female friends to have fun and reconnect -- or paint the town red. Whether you just want to catch up over coffee or down a few cocktails, the city has several choices that will make sure your group has a great time. At Café Intermezzo, expect your cup of joe – and your conversation – to be taken to a higher level. The hefty drink menu reads like a small novel and features standard favorites from mochas to cappuccinos, as well as crazy concoctions involving alcohol, whipped cream and more. The décor is designed after the European cafes popular in Vienna, and accordingly adds a bit of glamour that is a step above your average coffee chain. There is a full menu, including panini and pastas made fresh to order; just be sure to save room for dessert. And if you’re looking to impress your friends, excuse yourself to bone up on an exotic word or two from whatever foreign language tape is playing in the restrooms that day. If you and the ladies are looking for authentic Italian-style pizza in Atlanta, Fritti is the spot. It’s more upscale than standard pizza parlors, and the thin crusts and fresh ingredients will make you feel like you’ve met your friends in Rome for the evening. Choose from an extensive list of Italian wines to make sure that the conversation will flow easily, and then bask in Fritti’s décor while you wait for your pie. The restaurant is filled with intimate touches that will make you believe that you’re truly enjoying a special evening out. If you’d rather meet up for a few drinks outside the perimeter, check out d’Vine Wine Bar & Shop, inside the Shops of Dunwoody’s shopping center. Official wine tastings are Mondays and Tuesdays, but with flights offered, it’s as if there are wine tastings every night of the week except Sunday, when they’re closed. And on top of it all, the staff is exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable about the available pours. You can pull from the small menu for bites that will properly accompany your bottle of vino, but the star of the night at d’Vine truly is the wine list, which spans more than 500 bottles and 60 wines by the glass. So sit back, relax and let your hair down with your friends – just make sure someone gives you all a ride home.Read More
