Top choice italian in East Side

There is so much to love about this dark, candlelit Italian-Southern comfort-food haunt led by Mario Batali–trained chef Bruce Logue, but perhaps none more than his Southern-fried-chicken parma with creamy collards and strano pasta. It's hands down a top-five Atlanta dish. This Southern soul food with Italian tweak is made with a lotta love and not to be missed.

Reserve at least two weeks in advance. If not, the bar accepts walk-ins and is packed as soon as the door opens.
