Visitors to Lenox Square might do a double take next week when they walk past the Bantam + Biddy space at the Buckhead mall. That’s because business partners Shaun Doty and Lance Grummere are replacing their casual, chicken-centric eatery with a brand new concept: ATL Taco.
The change will occur Jan. 12 and will only affect the Bantam + Biddy location at Lenox; no changes are anticipated at the chain’s locations in Ansley ...

DISH OF THE WEEK: Artichoke beignets at Del Frisco’s Grille
Say “beignets” and I picture myself at Café Du Monde in New Orleans. I’m sitting down to a plate filled with puffy squares of deep-fried choux pastry covered in powdered sugar, sipping café au lait and watching carriage horses clip-clop along Decatur Street.
Alas! An escape to the Crescent City isn’t happening any time soon. Yet as the holiday season hits full throttle, I know I’m going to need an escape from the shopping craze – along with ...
French toast casserole with bacon-persimmon compote, prepared at the Big Green Egg culinary center. CONTRIBUTED BY HENRI HOLLIS
I recently paid a visit to the Big Green Egg headquarters on DeKalb Technology Parkway that overlooks I-85.
The plan was to prepare five dishes — steak, chicken kebabs, salmon, a pizza and a French toast casserole — to experience the versatility of the appliance.
“Anything you cook in your kitchen you can cook on a Big Green Egg,” one of my tutors, Amanda Egidio said as we walked outside to get the fire party started. “Except deep-fried turkey,” tutor Taylor Shulman ...

A neighbor just had a baby. A church member is recovering from surgery. Your friend invited you to a potluck. Your boss extended you an invitation to her open house. If with each of these scenarios, your first thought is, “What can I bring?,” well, now there’s a book for that — a cookbook, that is.
“What Can I Bring? Southern Food for Any Occasion Life Serves Up” (Oxmoor House, $30) is a new cookbook by Elizabeth Heiskell, an entertaining guru who got her start as a caterer ...

DISH OF THE WEEK: Mushroom quiche from Café Vendome
Nextdoor is a resource for more than home repair referrals, crime incident reports and lost cat notices. Folks using this private social network are also tipping neighbors off to nearby food finds.
Thanks to Nextdoor, I now know about Café Vendome, a French bakery-cafe at 4969 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. While located in the same plaza that houses Food 101 and Cibo e Beve, it’s easy to miss Café Vendome since it’s tucked away in the rear of the building. ...

This Saturday, the Atlanta History Center will dish out fun for the entire family at the Fall Folklife Festival. At this celebration of Southern culture, there will be arts and crafts, music and storytelling and lots to do in the form of food.
Today, North American Properties managing partner Mark Toro provided more details about the scope of the project, which will bring some twelve to fifteen purveyors to the food hall, along with revitalized indoor and outdoor spaces that will be the site ...

The cinnamon roll from Radial Cafe is the ultimate breakfast treat / Ligaya Figueras
DISH OF THE WEEK: Cinnamon roll at Radial Cafe
Since opening 18 years ago, Radial Cafe has given residents of Candler Park good reason to rise and shine.
No, we’re not talking about clean-eating dishes like the grain bowl or vegan hash. Nor are we talking about those I-can’t-believe-they’re-meatless biscuits and vegetarian gravy. Or the vegetarian sausage. Or the gluten-free pancakes.
We’re talking about the cinnamon roll.
This from-scratch, fluffy round of yum arrives to the table with a knife jabbed into the center. Cut and ...

Dish of the Week: Ned Kelly Pie at Australian Bakery Cafe
Australians have always impressed me with their spiritedness.
Take, for example, my former next door neighbor, Sal. She’s a rugby-playing Aussie who I recruited for my soccer team. When she showed up for a game, boy, did she show spunk – chanting and hollering for us to “go get ‘em!” When she took that energy to the ...

Dish of the Week: Fig Bread at Buford Highway Farmers Market
I am fixated on figs.
The $1 fig bread at Buford Highway Farmers Market is the latest way I’m getting my fill. Called pan de higo, it’s stuffed with chunks of dried Mission figs and the entire roll gets dusted in sugar. I made the mistake of buying only one loaf when I should have grabbed a dozen.
Maybe my love affair with this ancient fruit isn’t my fault. Perhaps I was born with it. ...

Dish of the Week: Picada de la Abuela at Las Delicias de la Abuela
A meat mountain. That’s pretty much what you get when you order the Picada de la Abuela at Colombian restaurant Las Delicias de La Abuela.
Picada translates here to “little bites,” and this platter is full of meaty nibbles that range from chunks of chorizo and blood sausage to pork cracklings, pork ribs and slices of superbly grilled chicken.

Atlanta imbibers know that The Pinewood in Decatur and The Mercury at Ponce City Market are both fine options for a quality drink. Now, the partners behind these restaurant-bars – Julian Goglia, Brooks Cloud and Mike Blydenstein – are gearing up to launch three more concepts, all of which should attract those who appreciate a good beverage program.
First up is Deep End, a late-night bar that will serve tacos and drinks in the old 4th & Swift space at 621 North Ave., ...
