Chai Pani

GA Voice - - Food & Mixology -

Few restau­rants have taken ad­van­tage of their po­si­tion­ing along the Belt­line as ef­fec­tively as Parish Brasserie & Neigh­bor­hood Cafe. The up­stairs of the re­vamped venue houses the main French/ Amer­i­can restau­rant, where you can dine on chicken liver mousse, pan-seared sword fish or smoked pork belly, while the lower level has been con­verted into a “curb­side” deli for a con­ve­nient, de­li­cious break while hik­ing the Belt­line.

East At­lanta Vil­lage some­times op­er­ates in its own uni­verse, which may be why the Oc­to­pus Bar feels like an ex­trater­res­trial din­ing ad­ven­ture. In­tended to pro­vide “punk rock fine din­ing” to late-night crowds, Oc­to­pus is open from 10:30 p.m.–2:30 a.m. and hosts a lo­cal high­light reel of guest chefs and an ev­er­chang­ing menu with a Euro/Asian twist.

Ra­dial Cafe

Las Brasas could no longer be con­tained in its orig­i­nal hut on Howard Street, and with its re­cently ex­panded space comes an ex­panded menu. Known for its Peru­vian ro­tis­serie chicken, Las Brasas now serves Peru­vian bar­be­cue as well as squid and oc­to­pus.

Un­like most in­ter­na­tional menus that try to show­case the crème de le crème of an­other coun­try’s dishes, Chai Pani shares the In­dian street food that fu­els ev­ery­day life there. Your taste buds will need a pass­port when you bite into the kale pako­ras or Parsi chicken burger.
