The Atlanta Restaurants We Loved in June


If there’s one thing you must know about the people who work at Resy, it’s that we genuinely love restaurants.

This month, we gorged ourselves on confit pork ribs and pasta, hunted down the greatest patios, and kept cool with top-notch cocktails and fresh juices. One thing’s for sure: Summer’s here and Team Resy has the pro tips for enjoying it all.

Shoutout to the veal sweetbreads…

… at Ticonderoga Club, located inside the Krog Street Market. Aside from the food, the atmosphere there is incredibly welcoming, and I really enjoyed talking with the staff.

Pro tip: If you can’t get a reservation, walk in and try to grab a seat at the bar — they have an awesome cocktail program and super knowledgeable bar staff. Also, if you’re there late at night, you have to order the Yankee BEC, available after the kitchen closes at 10 p.m.

No spring weekend is complete…

… without a feast on Delbar’s patio in Inman Park. I could spend hours here sipping on one of their fresh juices and trying every different flavor that’s on their menu. Special shoutout to the dill labneh — I think about it often.

The best Monday night pick-me-up…

… is dinner at GiGi’s. If you live nearby like me, it’s a no-brainer, easy neighborhood fave. You can order the entire food menu for under $200 and it’s delicious every single time. I love the beef carpaccio with its crunchy little rice cracker, the whipped burrata with baby beets, and the marinated anchovies. I also like that they switch out their cocktails seasonally, but that the Dirty GiGi is a classic and remains on the drink menu week after week.

I revisited a go-to during my college days…

No. 246, a treat-yourself brunch and dinner classic. When you picture a cozy neighborhood spot, this is it. I had the fungi and Calabrese pizzas, and their famous black spaghetti (a must-order) — it was all very nostalgic.

Pro tip: The outdoor patio is also super cute and is meant for summer pasta days.

Thankful that this pop-up…

… has turned into a full-time spot! Talat Market is a gem of a restaurant that combines traditional Thai flavors with local Georgia ingredients. I wish I could recommend a specific dish, but their menu rotates, so each visit will be a new one.

If there’s any Resy Experience that warrants that capital “E”…

… it was the Lazy Betty pasta collaboration dinner, which I was able to score a ticket to. The roster read like a who’s who of Atlanta’s heaviest hitters: Southern Belle, Georgia Boy, BoccaLupo, Lyla Lila, a mano, and Atlas — a whole lot of talent to be sharing the kitchen with chefs Aaron Phillips and Austin Goetzman. It culminated in an absolutely impeccable, imaginative meal that filled me with as much delight as the food — and that’s saying a lot for a technical ten-course feast (plus a bonus foie gras doughnut from the new bar menu).

Living in my head rent-free: a mind-bending “fresh tomato” gelée encasing burrata mozzarella on a bed of crispy salumi “soil” by chef Joey Ward (natch); diced blue fin puttanesca with cavatelli topped with a thin sheet of the same by chef Bruce Logue; and chef Craig Richards’ exquisite pork-stuffed tortellini, topped with fermented ramps and squid ink butter, resting on three-basil sauce. From the Lazy Betty home team, a new-age soup dumpling, or a raviolo filled to bursting with concentrated French onion soup, draped over a flawlessly seared hunk of A5 ribeye with truffles; and Gus Castro and Keely Moore’s (a young talent to watch!) gone-too-quickly trio of chocolate hazelnut ravioli dressed with a mint crème anglaise that has ruined the mint-chocolate combo for me forever.

When we booked our reservation…

… at JenChan’s, we didn’t realize that it was during brunch, which has a limited menu. It was limited, but mighty and filling, and the food was so flavorful. The brussels sprouts were fire, so much so that we ordered two additional orders of them. The wings were crispy and the shumai were chef’s kiss. My husband really liked the sweet potato pop tart. Everything was delicious and I can’t wait to go back and try something from the full menu.

I wasn’t someone who ordered ribs until…

… I was introduced to the ones at Foundation Social Eatery. Since then, they’ve been on my must-get and most-recommended list. Earlier this month, I popped into FSE to sit at a bar high-top, sip on a summer cocktail (the Venetian Spritz, to be specific), and snack on the tender, sweet, and satisfying confit pork ribs. Served with pickled red onion, scallions, and roasted pork jus, this dish is the perfect shareable summer appetizer. Or if you don’t feel like sharing (and I wouldn’t blame you), pair the ribs with bread service and the little gem Caesar, and just like that, you’ve got yourself a complete meal.

This is the perfect cozy dinner…

The Iberian Pig in Decatur, where perfect spreads of cheese and meat pair with some delicious tapas and wine. The patatas bravas, broccolini, and croqetas were some of my favorites.

I recently moved to Atlanta from New York…

… and have been trying to tap into the food scene here. When I ran across Humble Pie, I knew I had to try it, and it did not disappoint. My favorite dish was the Nikki; a pizza with white truffle sauce, wild mushrooms, arugula, and truffle dipping butter. It was the perfect umami kick. The wings were also very good and my one-year-old daughter loved the macaroni and cheese. Can’t wait to go back!
