    The family-owned Palestine bakery and cafe has some of the best falafel and shawarma this side of Al Quds. The newly-opened, expanded location in Marietta has plenty of seating and a bustling lunch crowd with lines through the door. There's an adjacent Middle Eastern market selling a large variety of freshly made pita bread, spinach pies, different kinds of baklava and Palestinian sweets, and colorful lokum (Turkish delight) that you shouldn?t leave without. less...

    Rumi's Kitchen Sandy Springs (Where to Eat Recommendation)

    Not all cities can boast about their fantastic Persian cuisine, but Atlanta is lucky enough to be home to RUMI'S KITCHEN, where the food of Iran is not only exotic, it's delicious. Grilled meats and hearty stews sing with vibrant spices. The sweet-and-sour flavor of pomegranate is wonderfully apparent in Rumi's version of dolmeh – ground beef and rice wrapped in grape leaves. Don't miss the kashk badenjoon appetizer, a rich and addictive blend of eggplant and onion topped with cream of whey, fried onion and mint. less...

    Forget clowns. Send in the belly dancers; there have to be belly dancers. At IMPERIAL FEZ, they undulate about the room with candles on their heads while you loll about shoeless on the carpeted, pillowed floor. The drama would be unforgivable if the food weren’t so remarkably good. We favor the tagines, meats and vegetables slow-cooked in a clay pot. But everyone loves the b’stella, a starter of roasted Cornish hen wrapped in phyllo-like pastry and coated in confectioner’s sugar. less...
