The Hit ListAtlanta

The January Hit List: Juniper Cafe, The Chastain, Octopus Kitchen, and More


 It’s 2022, and there’s absolutely no reason to look back when you live in a city like Atlanta, other than to realize how far we’ve come together, and how every new year comes with new opportunities to try new things. That certainly includes more than food, but yes, it also includes eating delicious new things, even if they’re in places you’ve been before.

Yes, we’re still dealing with challenges related to the pandemic, which is putting pressure on Atlanta restaurants. But that’s just more reason to support them through these trying circumstances to make sure they come out better than ever, just as you’d have your favorite plate of pasta come out of the kitchen at BoccaLupo, or biscuits exit the oven at Erika Council’s Inman Park food stall, or banh mi and pho fresh from the line at Juniper Cafe, the Lazy Betty crew’s new Vietnamese spot on the Westside. However it makes sense for you to help ATL restaurants and bars weather the storms, whether dining outside while the weather is still somewhat agreeable or picking up takeout, January’s Hit List is here to help.
