The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's John Kessler reviews Masti Fun Indian Street Eats, awarding the new Toco Hills restaurant a "good" rating of one star. Kessler says Masti can be inconsistent, but it's another good example in a welcome Indian trend:
But the biggest, brightest and most bodacious example of this new-style Indian restaurant has opened in Toco Hill. Masti Fun Indian Street Eats looks like the set for a Bollywood musical and exudes a special kind of desi joie de vivre. The menu mixes traditional chaat (savory snacks) with more outlandish fusion creations; you will find, along with the samosas and dosas, Indian versions of hot dogs, burgers and fries. Then, before you leave, you encounter a paan bar filled with all the botanicals, spices and sweets that you chew for a pick-me-up and breath-freshener.
Over at Atlanta INtown, Art Huckabee takes a look at La Petite Maison. Huckabee thinks the Sandy Springs restaurant could be Atlanta's essential French bistro:
The veal Normandy was the highlight dish. The veal was tender and the mushroom cream sauce, while rich, would make a shoe taste good. A side of stewed tomatoes and sautéed green beans was the perfect contrast. The "Gratin Dauphinois" was also crusty, creamy, "potatoey" good. ... La Petit Maison, or "LPM" as the regulars call it, is a very good rendition of its Provencal cousins with just a minor hiccup or two.
