Top choice european in Andersonville & Uptown

A cozy, European-like tavern, Hopleaf draws crowds for its Montreal-style smoked brisket, cashew-butter-and-fig-jam sandwich, uber-creamy macaroni and Stilton cheese, and the house-specialty frites (fries) and ale-soaked mussels. It also pours 200 types of brew (around 60 are on tap), emphasizing craft and Belgian suds.

In winter, a fireplace warms the jam-packed tables full of chattering locals. In summer, everyone heads to the umbrella-shaded patio in the back garden.
