The Atlanta Journal Constitution's Jon Watson gives Wrecking Bar Brewpub three out of five stars. The beer and cocktail programs are strong, and with the new-ish addition of Terry Koval as executive chef, "Wrecking Bar has finally stepped up its game in the kitchen." The pub is also new this month to Eater Atlanta's list of 38 essential restaurants.
Jenny Turknett looks at Seven Lamps for the AJC and awards it one star. "Seven Lamps is a case study in contradictions, juxtapositions and, well, little oddities," she says, adding that bartender Arianne Fielder "has creativity down to a science" but that while chef Drew van Leuvan has "true talent," his menu is still a bit inconsistent.
