The General Muir
Emory Point 1540 Avenue Place, B-230, Atlanta, GA 30329 www.thegeneralmuir.com Good choices: This new restaurant is risky in a city that has killed one attempt at an authentic New York-style deli after another. But the difference is the chef, Todd Ginsberg, whose evening menu includes small plates, his particularly respected craft, and larger plates of creative riffs on classics: prune-stuffed gnocchi; crispy trout with faro salad and butternutsquash puree; his famous double-stack burger; and roasted duck with turnips and rutabaga. Lunch is all classics – pastrami, corned beef, chopped liver, matzoh ball soup. Breakfast? Real bagels, pastrami hash, schmears, latkes!
