Nic & Norman's

American in Senoia

Owned by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead special-effects creator) and Norman Reedus (the actor who plays Daryl in the series), this restaurant is one of the most atmospheric hangouts in town. The setting is upmarket yet unpretentious, with exposed brick walls, a vintage bar area, chandeliers and leather booths. The kitchen has an emphasis on sustainable food.

It uses mostly locally sourced, non-GMO ingredients. While the menu's not revolutionary, it offers simple tried-and-tested dishes: salads, grilled flatbreads and gourmet burgers. Plus, there's a rotation of six other mains – items like grilled salmon, steak and penne pasta.
