5Church is awesome, y'all! I recently visited for dinner on a Thursday night. We started off with a round of cocktails. The Viper is true to its name. I loved the blend of tequila, cucumber, and cayenne pepper. For a starter, we noshed on the tuna tartare and pastrami-cured hamachi (think sushi-grade fish thinly sliced and topped with a radish garnish). Both were delicious. We then had the charred octopus, which was perfect. For entrees, we shared a few of the main courses including the filet with mashed potatoes (classic) and a vegetarian special: mushroom sausage. I'd never had anything like that before which wasn't tofu and I was pleasantly surprised. With our meal, our server helped us pick out a lovely bottle of pinot noir. Service was great. The whole staff at 5Church Atlanta aims to please. Also, 5Church just started lunch service, so I'll have to get back down there to see what's on the menu. I highly recommend this place - it's as good as it gets in Midtown ATL.
I was so impassioned by the horrible review that I had to respond. No restaurant experience is ever perfect except for at a Michelin 3 Star restaurant, and I believe at this time that there are no Georgia restaurants that have achieved that high level of service and culinary artistry. Fork in the Road exists in a price range for the rest of us. I live for a tasty lunch option that is fairly priced. I would highly recommend trying Fork in the Road because the following:1. The menu selection is diverse2. The wait staff can be a little slow at times, but they are always very friendly. 3. The food is always tasty and hot. 4. The portions are a great value for the money.In summary, mistakes happen. I have little respect for anyone who cannot accept the occasional mess-up that accompanies an apology. All I can say is that the previously posted unfair review has only inspired me and several of my co-workers to patronage this establishment even more.
Came here for a COT Thursday networking event. The ambiance is really awesome and the decor is very swanky with a modern retro twist. The catered freshly chef prepared food was a little too artistic for the crowd I was with though. Many people at the event had a hard time trying some of the exotic chef inspired dishes, which I thought were very unique and tasty. The polite and attentaive servers and bartenders constantly cleared empty dishes/glasses and inquired to replenish patrons with new drinks. The downstairs is not adequately sound isolated causing the room to get very loud from the echos of people talking. The outside bar/lounge area supplies the perfect view of Midtown. I am definitely looking forward to trying the food and cocktails at the actual upstairs restaurant.
I had really high hopes for 5Church. Cool location, awesome decor and an interesting menu. After having been twice, now, though, I can't say I'll be going back.The food is average - good, but the portions are so small for what you're paying for. I'm not trying to spend a fortune on an appetizer and salad. They also still have a few things to work out in the kitchen - they brought us a vegan dish with bacon on it, for instance. I'm hoping they can expand the lunch menu to be comparable to their other locations - the one now is super limiting. Hopefully they are still working out kinks and will be able to show us a better experience next time.
This place is where Korean and Mexican food meet. It is a most try if you're ever on this side of town. I can truly say that I had the best Shrimp taco that I have ever had in my life here. It was amazing and is now my go to dish. The bibim-bop is another one of my favorites. When entering the restaurant you walk up to the counter and place your order then you can have a seat outside or inside. Once your food is ready someone will bring it out to you. The margarita was nice and strong which is a plus for me. I enjoy sitting outside with my tacos and margaritas after a long day at work. This also a great spot to meet up and watch the game.
Great alternative to fast food, in the heart of Buckhead! It's like a Mediterranean Chipotle, but healthier. The concept is very simple yet genius: Pick your base (leafy greens/grains/sandwich bread), choose your protein (chicken/shrimp/portobello), and pile on your favorite toppings. It's a great way to sneak veggies and flavor into your meal, without going over your calorie count for the day (if you're counting those). This place is open for lunch and dinner, and each meal comes with the tastiest sweet potato chips: They're thin and savory and delicious! More details here: http://bit.ly/1twyZm4
This is always my go to spot after a good workout. The food here is always fresh and is always delicious. I try not to order the same thing when I go , but the almond chicken skewers are amazing! This is a dish packed with protein.They have great salads with ten different proteins choices to add on. The panini sandwich are also a great choice. You can't really go wrong here. The staff is friendly and efficient That's one of the things that I love about this place is that I'm in and out. You do have to park in a garage so, don't forget to get your ticket so, that the cost is taken care of.
If you love music and you love brunch then this is the place for you. Be sure to make reservations a week in advance if you want a table on Saturday. If not be sure to get there at 11am because reservations don't start till 12. I had the Jerk chicken and waffles which were great. I'm from Florida so the jerk could have had a little more heat, but those pineapple waffles were amazing. This is a great place to meet friends or just a great date night spot. Be sure to try the red snapper. You have to pay to park which sucks, but this is Atlanta.
Debbie's Delights is a great brunch/lunch option in East Point. We came on a Sunday for brunch. Note - this is a pork-free establishment so if you're a bacon lover then go elsewhere. There is a turkey bacon option, which looked pretty good.I had the chicken and waffles, just the way they should be in the classic Southern style. Service was friendly, though they did get busy in here. If you're near East Point, you should totally check this place out.
If you like Chick fil A chicken sandwiches you will fall in love with Hop's. The only downfall with Hop's is the lines so you have to make sure you go at the right time to avoid that. I had a chicken sandwich and which was delicious but I don't know if I would wait in an hour line for it. Ponce City Market has a lot of great restaurants if you do not want to wait in the line.
