Inman Park recs
A couple of Augusta chows are heading to Atlanta for two days next week and want to spend one evening exploring Inman Park. We plan to start at Krog Bar for drinks and light bites. Yes, no? Looking for other recs to maybe put together a walking/grazing tour of the neighborhood. Suggestions?
Love this!! So many of these restaurant recommendation threads start with someone coming to Atlanta but staying in Duluth, or downtown without transportation! glad to have someone coming to my hood. :)
After Krog bar I would walk to Miso Izakaya -- I just cannot get enough of this place. Get the duck or pork belly bun. And if it's your thing, I loved the jaja dofu. Soft, billowy, house-made tofu in a light black bean sauce. Huge sake selection, full bar, and seriously wonderful food. It's all small-ish plates to share. I wouldn't be surprised if you end up here for the night. You might want to make a reservation, though, or just sit at the sushi bar.
After that, two options: one, take a right and go to Sauced for another course. It's Ria's (of Ria's Bluebird) sort of kitschy, retro restaurant with a well-curated drink list and delicious food. It's open pretty late, and has a very cool, polished neighborhood vibe. For a kitschy retro place.
OR you can take a left out of Miso and check out the Sound Table. I still haven't been, so can't make any specific recommendations, but the food is supposed to be outstanding -- mostly twists on various ethnic street foods, I believe, and most things are for sharing. They turn the music up and start charging a $5 cover around 11pm.
Afterwards (if you're still walking) cross the street to Church (Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium). Have a nighcap there and ogle the blasphemy. Skip the food (tiny menu, it's good but features throw-back type foods. picture hot dogs and french onion dip). The place's attention to detail is amazing -- hooks for bags and jackets everywhere, drink rail lining every wall or window, etc. Great, diverse crowd and even better juke box.
