1. Bartaco
West Midtown taco haven, Bartaco, snuck in a new Buckhead location right under our noses. Expect much of the same vibrant coastal ambience, freshly-squeezed margaritas and pork belly/Baja fish tacos that made it last year’s summer sensation.

2. Marcel
Restaurant rock star Ford Fry (The Optimist, JCT. Kitchen & Bar, Superica, etc.) continues his domination of the Atlanta dining scene with forthcoming concept, Marcel. The European-inspired steakhouse will open this summer in the former Abattoir space, featuring craveable USDA prime cuts and savory sides.

3. Oddbird

West Egg Cafe’s new “restaurant within a restaurant” concept Oddbird features a bevy of fried chicken delicacies available Wednesday through Saturday evenings. Guests will go coocoo over chicken and waffles, savory biscuit incarnations and an innovative PB&J chicken sandwich.

4. Proof Bakeshop
The team of Decatur’s Cakes & Ale is bringing the doughy goodness to Inman Park with Proof Bakeshop. Taking no shortcuts in the process of creating their fine breads and pastries, expect a variety of baked-good awesomeness like English muffins, hand pies, macarons and sandwiches.

5. Pizza Crosta
New pie options come to Sandy Springs with the opening of Pizza Crosta. The concept from the Buckhead Pizza Co. team will feature fresh ingredients cooked in an open-fire oven with an exclusive dipping station of sauces, spices and oils to finish off your crust.
