Southern Chicken Biscuit Chicken and a biscuit? Total classic. Shout out to Proof and Provision for making the fried chicken biscuit extra unusual with tomato and jalapeno jam and pickled mayo. $8, Midtown, @proof_provision Okra Fries Fry addicts, rejoice! Chai Pani ’s version is not only made with a Southern staple (okra!), but the ultracrunchy slivers are addictively savory and decidedly less sinful than their potato counterpart. $7, Decatur, @chaipanidecatur Coca-Cola Strip Did we have you at Coca-Cola? We thought so. The folks at STATS have taken steak to the next level with a 72-hour marinade in Coca-Cola molasses with a side of mashed potatoes. Totes brilliant. $24, Downtown, @statsatl 93 Maine Crab Toast Slivers of shredded Jonah crabmeat are piled high and served with a stack of semolina toast and garlic aioli to create one of King + Duke ’s most popular starters. Each tastes positively regal with fl avors of lemon, olive oil, Thai basil, mint and serrano chiles. $16, Buckhead, @kingandduke CHAI PANI PHOTO BY ROBERT GUNN; KING & DUKE PHOTO BY SARA HANNA; PROOF & PROVISION PHOTO BY JAMES CAMP; STK PHOTO BY ERIK DIXON Cypress Philly This sandwich featuring beef round top, American cheese and caramelized onions on an Amoroso roll has become so beloved at Cypress Street Pint & Plate , the resto marks the sandwich down to $5 for Philly night on Mondays. Score! $10, Midtown, @cypressstreet Very Good Chocolate Cake Watershed on Peachtree is an A-Town celeb fave (just ask Jennifer Lawrence!), and we can’t stop raving about their rich but oh-so-right chocolate cake topped with a dollop of housemade whipped cream served in a cute mini Mason jar. $8, Brookwood Hills, @watershedatl Crocchette di Melanzane Think of these fried bites of eggplant, mozzarella and roasted pepper perfection as Fritti ’s version of foreplay before the main pizza event. You can have one and not the other— but who doesn’t want both? $7, Inman Park Slow Braised Brandt Beef Short Ribs Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were just a few of the celebs who hit Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse this year, so you know their food is top of the line. Our pick? The mouthwatering slow braised brandt beef short ribs with Gorgonzola mashed potatoes, Swiss chard and a port glaze. $36, Buckhead, @daviosatlanta Strawberry Cobbler Cocktail This is hands down one of our favorite cocktails in ATL. Kick back and take in the swanky view at STK with one of these in hand, featuring a graham cracker crumb rim, muddled fresh strawberries and Belvedere Red vodka. Liquid dessert that gets you feeling good, good, good. $14, Midtown, @stkatlanta New Mexico Hatch Green Chili Stew It’s hot; it’s hearty with a little bit of a zing; and a cup goes with literally everything on Agave ’s menu. $7, Cabbagetown, @agaverestaurant
