It isn’t a starred review, but Atlanta Magazine critic Jennifer Zyman has high praise for Thank U Chicken in Duluth. Zyman says the restaurant, which opened in November, is the Atlanta area’s best bet for Korean fried chicken.

What makes Korean fried chicken different from the type we Americans have come to know (think again to that certain Kentucky-based fast food chain) is that it is double fried: first with a dry flour coating to render out the fat of the skin, and then a second time after it is coated in a thin batter. The result is an outer layer that crackles like egg shells. ... If you are a fried chicken lover, this is a must-try spot that will you have, in fact, thanking the chicken.

THE ELSEWHERE AND THE BLOGS: Roamilicious likes the pizza, wings, and gelato at Rize Artisan Pizza in Sandy Springs. Friday Date Night says Muss & Turner’s new East Cobb location is almost as good as the original in Smyrna. Fried Chicken Lips says Ameer’s Mediterranean Grill is still a solid choice for Mediterranean fare. Hot Dish review is a fan of chef Tom Catherall’s Taco Cowboy in Virginia-Highland. The Cardigan Kitchen has good things to say about Smokebelly BBQ, Galla’s Pizza, and True Food Kitchen.
