Atlanta Magazine’s Corby Kummer reviews Noble Fin, Jay Swift’s Peachtree Corners seafood restaurant. Kummer awards an “excellent” rating of three out of four stars and says it’s Atlanta’s best fish house to open since Ford Fry’s The Optimist:
Noble Fin, a new seafood restaurant in Peachtree Corners, looks bland and anonymous, as if a developer got halfway through building an Olive Garden and decided to turn over the lease to a local operator instead. But looks, you might have heard, can be deceiving. Noble Fin turns out to be the city’s most assured and satisfying fish house since Ford Fry’s infinitely more stylish the Optimist. What’s more, Noble Fin serves a more succulent New York strip than most steakhouses inside and outside the Perimeter. It’s the rare restaurant that delivers more than it promises and makes you glad you walked through the door.
THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Elizabeth Lenhard says the food at The Comet Pub & Lanes is better than typical bowling alley grub, but it doesn’t stand out. Creative Loafing’s Angela Hansberger takes a first look at Char Korean Bar & Grill. Fried Chicken Lips has a hit-and-miss meal at Hajime. Burgers, Barbecue & Everything Else enjoys the Vietnamese fare at Scott’s Eats and Sweets in Mableton.
