Pick Five: Where To Eat Near Atlanta’s Malls

All hail the craziest shopping day of the year! Some of you have already snagged your deals and are settling in for a mid-morning nap. Others are gearing up their wallets with credit cards and sales flyers. Either way, you’ll need some fuel for your shopping endeavors. We’ve rounded up five local eateries near each of Atlanta’s busiest malls.

1. Mall of Georgia: Roya Restaurant
Mall of Georgia Blvd Buford, GA 30519
678-765-7936
www.royarestaurant.com

The regionally-inspired Mediterranean cuisine includes flatbreads, hummus, eggplant parmigiana and lamb gyros. Word on the street is Yelp! is doing a $30 for $45 worth of food deal. If you’re too tired from shopping Friday, make a point to stop by Saturday nights for belly dancing performances.

2. Stonecrest Mall: Rice Thai Authentic Thai Restaurant
8075 Mall Parkway #110 Lithonia, GA 30038
770-484-8879
http://www.ricethaiauthentic.com/

Good Thai food outside-the-perimeter has been found! The curries and soups are a true testament that this family-owned business is the real deal. Its chilly out but “Old Fashioned Pad Thai” warms the belly with a kick of spice.

3. Perimeter Mall: Goldfish
4400 Ashford Dunwoody Rd NE Atlanta, GA 30346
770-671-0100

Whether you want a full-blown steak or a lighter salad, Goldfish’s menu will please anyone in the family. Or for a group feast, have the table order the “Chilled Seafood Tower.” Either way, $5 martinis are a definite to take the edge off shopping.

4. Lenox Mall: Cook Hall

3327 Peachtree Road NE Atlanta, GA 30326
404-523-3600
www.cookhallatlanta.com

Need to dine and dash but still want a good quality meal? Cook Hall’s “lunch box” specials from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. include two to three snacks, starters or desserts, and their goal is to have you out within 30 minutes. When the shopping is done, circle back from 5 to 7 p.m. for $5 specialty boozy punches and $5 bar snacks.

5. North Point Mall: Campania Pizzeria Napoletana
800 North Main Street, Suite 100, Alpharetta, GA 30009
770-559-4674
http://www.campaniaga.com/

The chef is from Napoli Italy, so if you’ve been searching for that Italian thin crust pizza, this is it. The ingredients are as close to Italy as you’ll get in Alpharetta, with Fior-di-Latte mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes and prosciutto di Parma. You’ll welcome the cozy atmosphere as a break from the crowds.

What are your hidden mall restaurant treasures?

No, seriously, it’s Lenox Square. You can say Lenox, Lenox Square the mall but not Lenox Mall. It just hurts the ear. It makes us natives cringe.

Campania is not very close to North Point – it’s just south of Windward Pkwy on Hwy. 9.

Try Satay House on South Main in Alpharetta (take encore pkwy over 400, to Maxwell Rd). Their Nanyang tofu is about 8 bucks for lunch.

It’s actually Lenox Square, A Simon Mall… and when I’m there, I like to have lunch at “Prime” right in the mall, errr, I meant square. Although I have to wonder why anyone would ever cringe about a mall being called a square or vice versa? Life’s too short to be cringing over non-cringe worthy things. Not trying to be square or anything… ouch.
