CL: CL's Cliff Bostock Recommends: It’s well known that there’s a large population of Italians in Argentina and that’s one theme here. You can find a mash-up of flavors in Argentinian-style milanesa napolitana and empanadas filled with mozzarella and wild mushrooms. The hybridization broadens with chimichurri hummus and beer-glazed Amish chicken with oregano. Craving a sandwich? Try the super-rich choripan. It’s a soft, house-made white roll layered with grilled, locally made chorizo sausage, served with a bracing chimichurri sauce and a salsa criolla made with mild red peppers (put both on the sandwich). It’s located in the Beacon development in Grant Park. — CB

CL: CL's Cliff Bostock Recommends: The pandemic has brought about some long-needed changes in the dining industry. One of those is access to quality restaurant food for takeout at reasonable prices. The leader in Atlanta is this operation by Lance Gummere, one of our city’s chefs expert at tweaking Southern comfort food into something special. Plates with entrees, sides, and dessert cost only $25 for two. A typical meal is coq au vin with cavatappi pasta, arugula and baby kale salad, and bread pudding.

CL: CL's Cliff Bostock Recommends: Are you obsessed with the okonomiyaki? I am sick of that word, “obsessed,” but if you have to use it, apply it to this Japanese pancake that has been a “thing” everywhere for quite a while. OK Yaki describes it this way: “Japanese savory pancake made by mixing a rich batter with cabbage, green onions, pickled ginger, tenkasu and nagaimo. Fired on both sides and topped with okonomi sauce, Kewpie mayo, seaweed flakes, bonito flakes and one topping.” I like the pork belly topping. There are other dishes, including noodles and small plates for sharing here. If you eat inside, you’re going to have to prove vaccination proof. There is a large patio where you can breathe easy. Did I mention that it’s really cheap? - CB

Barbecue

CL: New and Noted: Vietnamese cuisine, wildly popular in the late ‘80s and ‘90s, has surged again and even been upgraded with Texas BBQ here. That means lots of juicy, house- smoked brisket (as well as chicken and pork) to add to the A+ pho or fries with typical pickled and fresh veggies. There are frequent specials that respect your redneck tongue’s refusal to eat foreign food — chili-cheese dogs and bacon-cheese burgers, for example. The regular menu’s smoked wings are extremely popular. - Cliff Bostock

CL: CL's Cliff Bostock Recommends: This breakfast takeout joint in Kirkwood gives full expression to the wacky imagination and humor of its owner, Nick Melvin. Three fat, perfectly rolled breakfast burritos are offered daily – one for carnivores, one for ovo-lacto-vegetarians, and one for kids. Just as compelling are daily-changing provisions in a case next to the cash register. You’ll find, for example, Atlanta’s realest carnitas, sauces, soups, and other entrees for home heating. — CB

CL: CL's Cliff Bostock Recommends: You’re always looking for food with a Midwestern twang, right? Find it at this rather peculiar gastropub inside the Pratt Pullman Yard, where the gigantic “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” was located for about six months (and will be reopening elsewhere in Atlanta in March). The big deal here is the Juicy Lucy, a half-pound burger stuffed with cheese, but I was more smitten by the fried cheese curds that Canadian and Wisconsin fugitives cry for constantly. Get a seat at the bar and chat with the bartender Abby — not the Abby — who pastors a church and is fluent in liberation theology and boozeology.
