Iconic Atlanta restaurant Aria gets three stars in a review from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution this week. Jenny Turknett sums it up: "After 12-plus years, Aria has its formula down to a science, altering the menu to reflect the seasons and walking a delicate line to appease loyal customers with favorite dishes. Yet, even with consistent and well-executed food, a wine list begging for exploration, and service that leaves you feeling pampered, I wish for a little more. More risks? More playfulness? More that I know Gerry Klaskala can give."
In an almost-review, Christiane Lauterbach takes a look at Gato. The Candler Park restaurant was formerly known as Gato Bizco and is currently offering a Monday and Tuesday dinner service called Gato Arigato. She talks about the recent menu and chef changes and explains the new service in further detail over at Atlanta Magazine.
