Fodor's Expert Review Staplehouse

$$$$ Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta American Fodor's Choice
The genuine welcome is almost as unexpected as the food at this 2016 James Beard finalist for Best New Restaurant. The dishes from Chef Ryan Smith are packed with pedigree, like sorrel foraged from North Georgia and served with supple and smooth sablefish. Crusty potato bread with whipped olive oil is a staple, as is the chicken liver tart. A seat at the bar can be as hard to nab as a reservation, but make sure to visit the globe-trotting wine list, with tastes from Slovenia and beyond.
