Corby Kummer Gives Last Word One Star

Atlanta Magazine critic Corby Kummer reviews Last Word, awarding the Old Fourth Ward restaurant a "good" rating of one star. Kummer says the tasty food could stand to venture more toward its Lebanese influences, but the restaurant has the makings of a neighborhood favorite:

For inspiration, Moussa took them to local Middle Eastern and north African restaurants, but says he ultimately let them run with their imaginations. So Lebanon appears as a lightly spiced thread through most of the dishes, which, alas, too often seem meh Med. ... But it's the character of the place-that pounding mallet and the pleasure the bartender takes in it, the owner and servers who ask if you need something else-that will make me want to come back. And come the summer bounty, so will some colorful food-ideally in the colors of the Lebanese flag.

THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: Hot Dish Review likes the Italian sandwiches at the revamped Timone's. Fried Chicken Lips takes home an average meal from Indo-Pak eatery Luqma. Bella Vivere is a huge fan of Cafe Mango Six in Duluth. Friday Date Night finds great gourmet sandwiches at Stationside, and The Amateur Gastronomer says it's a good choice for lunch. Atlanta Restaurant Blog enjoys the small plates at Craft Izakaya. Burgers, Barbecue and Everything Else has an excellent, cheap meal at Taqueria la Oaxaquena in Jonesboro.
