Front Page News – Crescent Ave
Feeling unfulfilled by their respective careers in banking and accounting, Josh Sagarin and Sean Keenan decided to start from scratch and open a restaurant that brought a small taste of the Crescent City's flavors and spirit to the heart of Atlanta. Money was tight as the friends got closer to the opening date in 1996, so they decided to cut some costs by scavenging Josh's parents' attic and collecting stacks upon stacks of old newspapers. Front pages with the best headlines earned frames and spots on the walls, and the rest were used to create a makeshift, newspaper mâché covering for the unfinished cement floors.
Things have changed a bit since those days. Front Page News now features two restaurant locations within the Atlanta area, and the newsprint-blanketed floors are a thing of the past. Tired of constantly patching the well trodden spots, Josh and Sean invested in slate floors as soon as possible.
In keeping with the friends' passion for New Orleans cuisine, the menus at Front Page News feature a broad selection of familiar classics, such as jambalaya and gumbo brimming with local Georgia chicken, okra, and peppers. These regional influences are even present on the burgers, which feature grass-fed, wet-aged beef patties topped with everything from grilled andouille sausage to fried green tomatoes and roasted red peppers.
A drink list complete with local beers on tap and potent cocktails is also on-hand to help quench thirsts. Front Page News even earned a spot on CBS Atlanta's 2012 list of the Best Bloody Marys In Atlanta, which praised the restaurant for its spicy renditions of the classic drink. For diners who would prefer to experiment a bit more, the restaurant features a build-your-own-bloody-mary bar during Saturday and Sunday brunch complete with 100 ingredients. Live local bands play every Friday and Saturday night starting at 10 p.m., and customers can join the the free Royalty Rewards Club to receive discounts, bonus points, and gift certificates in the mail.
