Creative Loafing's Stephanie Dazey takes a first look at Kirkwood's Elmyriachi, sister restaurant of Little Five Points burrito dive Elmyr. Dazey finds the new Tex-Mex spot "is what Elmyr would be like if it grew up":
Elmyriachi is the rare restaurant that manages to alienate almost no one. The service staff may be green. There may be hiccups at the bar. But with tasty food that feels so developed so soon, and a devoted following right off the bat, Elmyriachi has all the elements of a neighborhood mainstay. In that way, it is exactly like Elmyr.
THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: Hot Dish Review wonders if the Neapolitan-style pizza — with local flair — served at Ammazza is Atlanta's best. HDR also went to Ink & Elm and enjoyed the beef cheeks, but found the duck breast to be disappointing. Atlanta Restaurant Blog found highs and lows at the Hush Dinner Club at Lusca, and would like to return to Angus Brown's and Nhan Le's new restaurant. Bella Vivere was pleased with Sunday brunch at Saltyard, dining on dishes such as corned beef hash croquettes, steak and eggs, and s'more bread pudding.
