The lunch-only grain bowl from Atlanta's resident vegetable whisperer chef David Sweeney is an ever-changing composition of honest goodness and one of CL's 100 Dishes!
Make sure to check out the Roasted Carrot and Carrot Puree, pac choi & kale, pear, pomegranate seeds, green onion, cilantro, coriander seed vinaigrette. Yum!
This is the kinda place where you could easily say "bring me anything" and you would enjoy it. Ask for a tawny port with dessert. You'll be happy you did.
crispy quail was quite good.
The restaurant's fresh, wood-fired North Carolina trout with a heap of flavor-packed bacon and scallion housemade mayo was a no-brainer for CL's 100 dishes list.
So far my favorite place in Atlanta. I have gone head over heels for their swordfish dish. The fried collard greens appetizer is amazing also... Say yes to their endless supply of free bread!!
A short appetizer roster that includes two standouts: arancini (rice fritters) flavored with fennel pollen and okra, sliced longways, crisp fried, and served with a bullet of buttermilk ranch.
An "Indian Summer" or "A Perfect Day" await, or if you're feeling frisky, how bout a "Cloak & Swagger"? The bar may be longer, but the menu remains short and sweet.
Aroncini are a must get. Grown up version with fennel pollen and lemon zest. Whole.new.level. Stop by the bakery to take away sweet treats for the next day. Well deserved top 10 restaurant 2012
Amazing meal from start to finish. One of the best restaurants in Atlanta.
Try the pt. And the lamb. And the trout with bacon mayo. (But ask the waiter to filet the trout for you). End scene.
The Oatis is pretty much Little Debbie's sprinkled with crack. Chase it with an Orval for a true F.K. experience.
The recently relocated restaurant continues to capture the local food loving hearts of Atlantans, who seem to prefer substance and ease over style and status. [Eater 38 Member]
Great bar - and food is locally farmed. My fave.
More of a small plate sharing type of restaurant! Great Service but you do have to make a reservation unless you want to sit at the bar.
After overlooking Billy Allin's Decatur staple for a few months, the 38 corrects course and welcomes Cakes & Ale back into the fold. Sommelier Jordan Smelt's wine list is the best in Atlanta.
Menu changes seasonally. Great cocktails. The appetizers and sides are VERY small, so order accordingly. We split a fish and ribeye for entrees and they were both great.
Good was amazing. All fresh and seasoned to perfection. Amazing place.
Its the best date-night spot around. But the main reason for the love is the adjacent Cakes & Ale Caf, an all-day spot serving feel-good, vegetable-heavy lunches plus the fudgiest brownies.
