Omnivore - Bon Appetit blog raves about two Atlanta restaurants
One serves pizza, one serves pig ears
Bon Appétit's "Foodist" visits Atlanta and files rave reviews, replete with pics, of near-neighbors Varasano's and Holeman & Finch. Excerpts:
Varasano's won't win any design awards for hipness; it's a few steps up from an airport food court. (I was reassured, though, to notice the girl sitting next to me wearing a t-shirt that read "Shakespeare hates your emo poems.") But never mind that. I challenge you to find me a better pizza pie...
H + F's menu is devoted to small plates: trad Southern meets trad pub. Cornmeal Fried Oysters were perfect. One poached egg served with a small, thick piece of house bacon and a Johnnycake was satisfying--and just right size. Best of all was the house-made currywurst served with Savannah Red Pea dahl, a brilliantly balanced melding of flavors and smart nod to England's love of Indian food.
