In the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week, Atlantic Station restaurant Chick-a-Biddy gets two stars. Behind the paywall, reviewer Jenny Turknett recommends the chicken burger and the fish tacos with jalapeno broccoli slaw. About the restaurant, she says:
[Chick-a-Biddy] serves the Atlantic Station crowd, folks out for a little fun and entertainment. Here, owners Doty and Lance Gummere take a more modern and forward-thinking approach [than that of sister restaurant Bantam + Biddy]. What they've created seems to resonate with this audience, but like Bantam + Biddy, may require additional settle-in time to evolve into a true destination.
Creative Loafing's Brad Kaplan takes a first look at Emory Village pizzeria Slice & Pint. The restaurant hopes to have its next-door brewery open by early 2014; until then find local brews plus pizza, "guilt-inducing" appetizers, salads, and sandwiches. The piece ends: "Pizza and beer is a winning combination. Slice & Pint's pizza may not be destination-worthy, but the use of fresh, quirky flavors and quality ingredients make it worthy of a detour."
THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: Three stars for Marietta's The Butcher The Baker, a note on the burgers at Hobnob, a do-not-order dish at Gino's NY Pizza, Atlanta, etc. looks at Ben's Brown Bag, Marie, Let's Eat visits The Mughals in Norcross, and Burgers, Barbecue, and Everything Else heads to Cinco Estrellas upon a recommendation from Atlanta Magazine.
