YOUR PICKS

1) Honey Pig

You say, “Honey Pig is definitely on top of my list. They have a very interesting and different layout of how the Korean barbeque is served and presented. As for taste, I’d have to say it’s definitely one of the best Korean BBQ restaurants in Atlanta hands down.”

OUR PICKS

1. Woo Nam Jeong

AJC dining critis Meridith Ford Goldman says, “Woo Nam Jeong (Stone Bowl House) offers Korean classics – bulgogi, dolsot bibimbap and soondubu – but with a homey difference. Meals here seem to be prepared with a loving hand and splash of panache from owner Young Han.

1) Bistro Niko

You say, “The French brassiere/bistro is a dying commodity in Atlanta. Bistro Niko has rekindled my faith. I have been there multiple times and can’t get over how much I have enjoyed it each time. I have only been to France three times so I am not an expert, but to me, Bistro Niko is the closest thing….”

1) French American Brasserie (FAB)

AJC dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “When FAB opened downtown, I’ll admit I missed the cozy quaintness of Brasserie Le Coze’s truly French dining room. But the first time I stepped out of the elevator and onto this restaurant’s rooftop dining area, I got over it. Breezy, with a fab view of the city’s burgeoning downtown scene, plus all the accoutrements from the kitchen, from champagne …
