Why am I just discovering this magical place?! My friend suggested we check it out for brunch, and I'm so glad that we did! I was worried we'd have a long wait since it was Sunday brunch time, but we were seated immediately. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating, especially since we had the hardest time trying to decide what to order...everything sounded delish! For cocktails we tried the Strawberry Fields, The Devil Went Down to Georgia, and the Southern Hospitali-tea (we love boozy brunches, don't judge). We also tried the Sweet Potato Beignets...melted in our mouths! I ordered the lobster eggs benedict (awesome). My friend ordered the Foul Play, which is fried chicken & waffle w/ whiskey peach compote (also awesome, I snuck a few bites from her plate). We were so stoked to find Folk Art, and we can't wait to check out the rest of the menu. I'm seriously thinking about going back tomorrow...hey, I said don't judge me!
Really cute place, and the food is pretty good, but the service was really slow. I ended up having an appetizer and leaving to have dinner elsewhere. Maybe it was just an incredibly busy night... But the food looked authentic, and the appetizers I did have were very good.
Have you ever been to a Brazilian steakhouse or a Chinese dim sum? Imagine both but with refined Southern food and if you haven't gone to either.....you're in for a treat.This was a very unique dining experience. I was NOT expecting cafeteria style seating with my date sitting on the opposite side of me and other patrons so close to me but I LOVED IT. I was so curious to see what others ordered and ask if we should order it as well.Gunshow serves amazing small dishes and the actually chef comes out and presents each course to you. The drinks are made table side. I did feel bad declining some dishes since it looks so yummy but after dish number 5 - I was stuffed. This by far is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta due to its creativity, amazing food, and ambiance. The menu is constantly changing with revolving chefs. I wouldn't recommend it for a first date, since it's quite loud and busy, but definitely worth it with friends, family, or if you're in a relationship. We parked on the street. :)
Great sushi place on the West Side! Sure, they've got the tasty rolls, nigir and sashimi options, but they also have great omakase options (chef's tasting), creative appetizers that I haven't seen anywhere else, and great hot dish options. For appetizers, I LOVED the hamachi carpaccio and the scallop tiradito! Oh, and do visit their rooftop patio, which has gorgeous views of Atlanta.
To say this may be one of my favorite Mexican spots in Atlanta, may be an understatement. I love Mexican and could eat it every day, but the way Ford Fry presents the menu and decor is top notch! Their house salsas are unreal (and super addicting). I love their house salad with radishes, corn and avocado -- recommend it with the shrimp! If you're in the area for lunch, they have a $10 lunch special that includes: your choice of two entrees and rice and beans! I must warn you, they do not take reservations and there is always a long wait (especially on Friday and Saturday), but it's well worth the wait!
I'm not really happy with this place. The service was bizarre and the food was below average for the price. It may be better for a large group but I won't be going back.
Great views! Great sushi! The service and atmospher was awesome! The server was knowledgeable about the menu and able to make suggestions based on our tastes and answer our questions..very helpful!
Food - meh. So overpriced for what it is. We have plenty of sushi places in Atlanta is this is definitely not even top 5 (whether it's a a sushi roll smothered in fake crab or a small, chewy piece of tuna sashimi, it's just not all that good).Alcohol - They've got a decent liquor selection and they make decent mixed drinks and cocktails. I enjoy this place primarily as a pregame or a late night drink spot.Atmosphere - Every time I come I immediately go up to the roof, which reminds me of the beach or something. It has nice couches, bar seating, and a great skyline view of Midtown. Love!
You must get the Comfy Chicken biscuit. It's famous, but you'll definitely be in a food coma (I would recommend potentially sharing). This is a diner-style spot, so it's not a boozy brunch restaurant if that's what you're looking for. It's unique and rustic and in kind of a weird area of Grant Park - but totally worth the food and laid back atmosphere.
I had the Challah French toast with berries, scrambled eggs, and chicken sausage. The mimosas were all the way up! Totally enjoyed the food, mimosas, and atmosphere! Came here to brunch with a couple friends! Happy Sunday!
