The Westside neighborhoods of Blandtown, Berkeley Park, and the Marietta Street Artery are steeped in Atlanta’s industrial, stockyards, and railroad history. Small enclaves of charming bungalows scattered throughout the city’s northwest corridor date as far back as 1910 and were once home to the area’s workforce.

These neighborhoods have become popular (and mostly affordable) places to live for families, young professionals, creatives, and students and professors from neighboring Georgia Tech over the last decade. Those buying homes here have the last portions of the Atlanta BeltLine to look forward to in their future. Anchored by Bellwood Quarry Park, just west of Marietta Boulevard, the northwest Beltline trails will eventually snake through these tree-lined neighborhoods, passing dining and drinking destinations such as Star Provisions, Westside Provisions District and the Ironworks, and Monday Night Brewing.

Here are a few breweries, bars, and award-winning restaurants to consider when visiting these historic neighborhoods in northwest Atlanta.

Tuza Taco

Copy Link

Tuza opened in the Berkeley Park neighborhood along Howell Mill Road last year serving a variety of tacos along with queso, guacamole, and chips and salsa. Head in for a beer or a strong margarita, and take a seat indoors or on the small patio just off to the side.

Star Provisions and Bacchanalia

Copy Link

Star Provisions’ sandwich counter — dubbed Little Star — is still at Westside Provisions District, but Anne Quatrano’s market and cafe has moved to a brand new building on Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard. The cafe has quickly become a neighborhood gathering spot for omelet sandwiches with prosciutto, herbs, and brie served on fresh baguettes in the morning and charcuterie and cheese boards paired with wine in the afternoon. Feeling fancy? Make a dinner reservation at Quatrano’s fine dining stunner, the iconic Bacchanalia, located next door.

Monday Night Brewing

Copy Link

One of the founding fathers of Atlanta’s craft beer scene, Monday Night Brewing on the Westside has been tying one on for years with cleverly named classics like Fu Manbrew, Drafty Kilt, and Nerd Alert. Eventually, the Trabert Avenue location will be situated along the BeltLine’s Northwest Trail. MNB also has a second outpost at the Lee + White development in the historic West End located off the BeltLine’s Westside trail.

Urban Tree Cidery

Copy Link

Urban Tree, located on Howell Mill Road, has become the happy-hour hang out for the Westside neighborhoods of Berkeley Park and Underwood Hills. Ciders are all produced on site from apples harvested and crushed in the North Georgia mountains. For those not into high-octane apple juice, order cocktails from the bar that features many of the city’s local spirits. Find food trucks here on weekends.

Bone Garden Cantina

Copy Link

Hidden in the back of the Lumberyard complex off of Ellsworth Industrial, Bone Garden serves up solid Mexican food and premium mezcals and tequilas.

Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours

Copy Link

Twisted Soul Cookhouse & Pours is where the South’s most loved dishes meet the classically-trained chef-owner Deborah VanTrece. VanTrece’s world travels and 30 years cooking professionally are present and accounted for on the menu and in the service here. Twisted Soul strikes that difficult balance between casual and fine dining with ease. Expect an amuse bouche to whet the appetite like a delicate bite of chicken salad, shared dishes such as black eyed pea salsa fresca served with fresh tortilla chips, and graciously plated entrees such Cajun-spiced roast chicken atop a bed of red beans and rice. This food has soul.

Taqueria Del Sol

Copy Link

The line begins to form the minute the doors open at this Westside taqueria. The loyal regulars come from around the neighborhood for chef Eddie Hernandez’s mix of Mexican and Southern flavors like fried chicken, brisket, and smoked-pork tacos.

Westside Provisions District and Ironworks

Copy Link

Westside Provisions District and the Ironworks across the street could be considered the heart of dining and drinking in this portion of Westside. While both complexes lean on the trendy and spendy side, the variety of dining options are impressive and include among the many options popular local coffee shop Brash located inside a shipping container, old-school steakhouse Marcel, Jeni’s Ice Cream, Star Provisions’ Little Star cafe, cocktail bar Little Trouble, JCT Kitchen, wine and tapas bar Barcelona Wine Bar, sushi restaurant O-Ku, Holler and Dash for breakfast and brunch, and health-focused Upbeet. Three new restaurants join the ranks here later in 2019. Find Basque-inspired food and plenty of Spanish wines across the street from WSPD at Cook & Soldiers, too.

West Egg Cafe

Copy Link

West Egg has been serving breakfast and brunch in Westside for more than a decade and is still considered one of Atlanta’s best bets for a morning meal. It’s tough to beat sour cream pancakes with syrup and spiced honey butter or the simple comfort of the blue plate (two eggs, biscuit, choice of breakfast meat, and roasted garlic grits or skillet potatoes).

Northside Tavern

Copy Link

This iconic Westside haunt is so much more than drinks. It’s a blues dive bar serving up shots of Wild Turkey, PBR, and live music into the wee hours of the night. The bar has been part of the Westside in one form or another since the 1940s as a grocery store, a gas station, and a blue collar bar serving the area’s mill and stockyard workers.

Slim & Husky's Pizza Beeria

Copy Link

Hip-hop-inspired Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria opened on Howell Mill Road just up from Westside Provisions District in May. The popular north Nashville pizzeria, owned by college friends Clinton Gray, Derrick Moore, and Emanuel Reed, features pizzas named for songs by various hip-hop and R&B artists like the Rony, Roni, Rone! after the group Tony! Toni! Toné! It includes three types of pepperoni. The Cee No Green pays tribute to crooner CeeLo Green from Atlanta-based Goodie Mob.

Miller Union

Copy Link

When James Beard award winner Steven Satterfield opened his farm-fresh, Southern restaurant in 2009 on Brady Avenue, he set the bar high for the Westside’s fledgling dining scene. The farm egg baked in celery cream with grilled bread is a top-10 Atlanta dish, and the restaurant has one of the best vegetable plates in town (not to mention an impeccable wine list).

Stockyards Complex

Copy Link

Like Westside Provisions District, only much smaller, the Stockyards is home to restaurants like gaming bar and restaurant the Painted Duck, Italian restaurant Donetto, and French restaurant Aix and its adjacent wine bar Tin Tin.

Eight Sushi Lounge

Copy Link

Eight Sushi Lounge, the Westside restaurant from Rice Restaurant and Sushi Bar owner Lei G Ho, serves sushi with a modern twist.

The restaurant has an expansive patio, which is enclosed during the winter.

The Optimist

Copy Link

The Optimist is Ford Fry’s Westside fish house. Head here for fresh-shucked oysters and lobster rolls at the oyster bar just off the putting green patio during happy hour and in the evenings. Or, grab lunch and dinner in the dining room, including swordfish and scallop crudos, she crab soup, mahi mahi, and halibut with salsa verde.

Tiny Bistro

Copy Link

This unassuming cafe might be missed along busy Marietta Street in Westside. Come here for pecan chicken salad mixed with dried cranberries and topped with lettuce and tomato on a croissant. Other sandwiches worth the order here are the grilled pimento cheese on sourdough and the turkey meatloaf with mashed potatoes and horseradish mayo on Cajun pistolette.

Marietta Street Artery

Copy Link

The Marietta Street Artery skirts a portion of. the eastern edge of the Westside’s rail line and yards, once the heart of the area’s industrial and stockyard past. The street is now home to apartments, shops, businesses, creative and music studios, and several restaurants such as Octane coffee, Bocado, Le Fat, Bartaco, Amelie’s French cafe, and breakfast and brunch spot Thumbs Up Diner. Over the next year, several new dining establishments will join this busy stretch of road, including a second location of Buford Highway’s popular Malaysian restaurant Food Terminal.
