Atlanta Journal-Constitution food editor Ligaya Figueras reviews The Shed at Glenwood, awarding a "very good" rating of two out of four stars. Figueras is smitten with chef Justin Dixon’s updated take on traditional American comfort foods:

Many of the items at the Shed will take you back to your childhood, because comfort food abounds here. ... In many cases, those familiar dishes have been reimagined or updated, as in the presentation of a chicken pot pie topped with puff pastry rather than being enveloped in a crust. The essence of a Snickers bar is captured in profiteroles filled with caramel ice cream, drizzled with chocolate, nougat and a sprinkle of chopped peanuts. ... I’ll be back to eat up what Dixon has to say through food.

THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: The AJC’s Wyatt Williams loves the soup dumplings at Buford Highway’s Yong He Zhi. Brad Kaplan of Creative Loafing says chef Mihoko Obunai’s Nexto is still finding its legs, but shows promise. Atlanta Magazine’s Jennifer Zyman advises intown diners who miss O4W Pizza to make the drive to Duluth. Hot Dish Review enjoys some heavy comfort food at The Shed at Glenwood. Burgers, Barbecue & Everything Else suggests fried seafood over grilled at Marietta Fish Market.
