2015 Best of ATLANTA Good Eats Best New Restaurant: Le Bilboquet This New York City transplant will take you on a trip to Paris, from the ornate decor to divine must-trys like the steak frites and endless charcuterie. Buckhead, Best Italian: Pricci Executive Chef Piero Premoli takes the crown again this year for authentic Italian fare like lasagna espressa and ravioli di brasato. Buckhead, @pricciatlanta Best View: Big Sky Buckhead Order a SweetWater and park yourself with the skyline to the east and the sunset to the west. Buckhead, @bigskybuckhead Best Vegan: Kyma Go big on flavor without sacrificing vegan standards with the white bean soup and braised salsify while they’re around—delish. Buckhead, @kymarestaurant Best Takeout Spot: Chin Chin Satisfy takeout cravings with General Tso’s chicken or shrimp fried rice at this ATL staple. Multiple locations, @chinchinatl Best Brunch: West Egg Cafe Get there early, but get in line— there’s a reason this Sunday staple is always packed with peeps ordering the ever-popular salmon cakes Benedict. Westside, @westeggcafe Best Mexican: Bartaco Escape to this coastal-inspired charmer where the margaritas are fresh and platters of guac, cotija cheese corn and tacos disappear in seconds. Westside and Buckhead, @bartacolife Best Pizza: Antico Pizza Antico’s communal setting keeps the vibe casual while perfectly wood-fired pies prove that Antico is simply the best. Just ask fans Selena Gomez and Drew Barrymore. Westside, @antico_pizza Best Bakery: Alon’s Last year’s winner takes the cake again—as if choice picks of double-crusted apple pie and chocolate croissants weren’t enough to make it a sure bet. Multiple locations, @alonsbakery Best Sweets Spot: Sprinkles Cupcakes Since shopping is cardio, you won’t feel any guilt picking up a red velvet cupcake at this Lenox Square sweet spot or cashing in at its 24/7 Cupcake ATM machine. Buckhead, @sprinklesatl 64 Best Steakhouse: Chops Lobster Bar Celebs and Atlantans agree; when it comes to incredible food and exceptional service, Chops is where it’s at for the best meal in town. Buckhead, @chopslobsterbar Best Seafood: Atlanta Fish Market Maine lobster, crab pots, fresh sushi and a grilled whole fish that borders on epic—nobody does seafood better than AFM. Buckhead, @atlfishmarket Best Barbecue: D.B.A. Barbecue Head to Va-Hi with your stretchy pants on for smoked wings, pimento-cheese bacon burgers and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Virginia-Highland, @dbabarbecue Best Burger: Holeman & Finch Public House The burger that built a legacy used to only be available after 10 pm or at Sunday brunch, but now this cheesy, double-patty masterpiece is on the full-time menu and is a must-try at H&F Burger at Turner Field. Buckhead, @holemanandfinch Best Group Dining Spot: Gypsy Kitchen There’s a reason this newbie landed at No. 3 on our 100 Hottest Restaurants list. Wander in with friends and share faves like garlic shrimp or Spanish-style toasts. Buckhead, @gypsykitchenatl Best Farmers Market: Peachtree Road Farmers Market Every Saturday morning from mid-April to mid-Dec., this pre-brunch go-to comes alive with seasonal veggies, cured meats and farm fresh fare. Buckhead, @ptreefarmersmkt Best Restaurant Bar: Barcelona Wine Bar Barcelona’s bar scene is one of the best, with lushworthy sips like the Summer St. Sling, Bees Wings and white sangria that always get the party started.
