The Spence. Richard Blais has really found his groove and it's refreshing, interesting, global and smart. “

Art Smith, Southern Art
Bistro Niko. They know me. I get my hair cut at the place upstairs. I also love Richard Blais.”

Mike LaSage, P’cheen, Pizzeria Vesuvius and Bone Lick BBQ
“Hmm. There are so many awesome choices. Miso is a great concept and always executed well. It has an awesome bar to go to with your girl. So Ba in East Atlanta is a wonderful spot for pho in the city. Highland Tap is great. Rathbun's [Kevin Rathbun] Steak is amazing. Planet Bombay is terrific for melt-your-face-off, hot-as-hell Indian. It's impossible to narrow it down to one. We are in a city with way too many great places to eat. It's an unfair question, really—how dare you?”

Adam Evans, The Optimist
“My favorite restaurant in Atlanta is Octopus Bar in EAV. Angus Brown and Nahn are amazing chefs that produce amazing meals. They are truly some of the most talented cooks in their creativity and execution.”
