The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jenny Turknett awards three stars to Rico's World Kitchen in Buford. The restaurant serves everything from shrimp po' boys to Filipino-style egg rolls called lumpia and does it all well.
Stephanie Dazey at Creative Loafing reviews Yard House, calling it a "restaurant anomaly." In a nutshell: the food is decent, but the menu's mass appeal and endless beer options make it perfect for the corporate environment that is Atlantic Station.
AJC's John Kessler takes on Fig Jam Kitchen and Bar but finds it lacking. He says the menu is confusing, the food is hit or miss— the table's lamb belly had bones and its bowl of almonds and olives had no almonds—, and the drinks are unforgettable.
