Masterpiece is a family-owned and operated Sichuan restaurant with dishes created by chef Rui Liu. From the Chongqing-style noodles and dry spicy eggplant to tea-smoked duck and shredded beef or pork with hot peppers, few things on the menu don’t come with a bit of heat. Masterpiece is worth the trek north from Atlanta and a great place to enjoy a family-style meal with friends.
