Are you or a loved one a victim of chronic dining repetition? Maybe you are tired of eating at the same restaurants over and over and enjoy the luxury of home cooked, healthy foods?
Well, here are three restaurants that will cure your worst food ailments. These best kept secrets of Atlanta will change the way you eat and think green, on your table and in your wallet.
1. Floataway Cafe
Foodies believe in heaven, and it exists on 1123 Zonolite Rd. This charming café will help you escape from the loud and crowded city and discover a new side of Atlanta. You know you've found a new treasure the moment you enter the wonderland-like curtains. The café itself is a transformation as a renovated warehouse and will bring your palate back to life.
Curated by chefs and owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison of the famous Bacchanalia, they bring you food that is fresh, seasonal and local; and of course, not forgetting to mention the cafe's impressive service. The menu changes daily and reflects contemporary French, Mediterranean and Italian dishes.
During warmer temperatures, be sure to sit outside on the patio to share some of your favorite memories sipping fine wine and indulging in “la dolce vita” as you float away under the night skies.
2. Radial Cafe
Radial's small carbon footprint has often gone unnoticed in mainstream restaurant eatery news, but will leave a big impression in the way you view quality restaurants. Once you discover Radial, you will find nothing but the best: a certified green restaurant serving the freshest, sustainable, and finest ingredients around. The Café’s recycled products and commitment to the environment makes for the friendliest restaurant in town.
They serve a delectable variety of brunch and lunch dishes on the menu; try their buckwheat pancakes and their fish and grits that will have you coming back again and again, even if it takes having to make a hundred U-turns on the often puzzling Dekalb Avenue. Keep an eye out for this restaurant when cruising in Decatur and forever it shall remain on your food radar!
3. Café Jonah
Have you ever loved something so much you wanted to name something after it? Well, Cafe Jonah will show you what love is all about. Often known as Souper Jenny, this dedicated mother named the restaurant after her son, Jonah. Why? Because he wanted her to. Their love is radiantly bestowed upon this uniquely adorned decor complete with the design of her son's own artwork and other equally personalized expressions of her muses for food and care for her community. The environment is warm and inviting as if you’re at your aunt’s house on a Saturday afternoon. The food is cooked to comfort and homemade as if your grandma whipped up her most classic recipes made to your delight.
How to top it all of? Something sweeter and more enduring than dessert: a classic philosophy of giving back to the local community with a Sunday all-you-can-eat brunch and “pay what you think it’s worth” price. On Sundays, 10 percent of the profits is donated to local charities in Atlanta.
As if love and kindness were not enough, you can head upstairs to find some peace and serenity. The Attic offers a variety of services from “The Healers” who provide everything from reflexology, therapy, to Chakra cleansing.
So get off your couch, ditch your delivery numbers off of your favorites list and say goodbye to drive-thru! Go check out these amazing restaurants!
