There was a time when if someone mentioned Cabbagetown, you thought of our own little slack-jawed patch of Appalachia in south Atlanta. No more. The Boulevard entrance to the former cotton mill village is now occupied by AGAVE, which has become a citywide destination. Greg Herndon, chef/owner of the defunct Tiburon Grill, has joined owner Jack Sobel in the kitchen, and the two are cooking con gasolina.

Kevin Rathburn's Nava carries Southwestern chic to the nth degree with the Hispanic, Western and Native American flourishes of the Buckhead restaurant's decor proving so fanciful as to nearly suggest a Georgia O'Keeffe fever dream. Likewise, such dishes as the green chile lobster soft tacos, the iron-skillet mussels in chipotle broth and the ancho-chili cured lamb are intoxicating but user-friendly examples of the Southwestern fusion style.
