2016 BEST OF AT­LANTA AWARDS

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

For a sweet city treat, Cafe In­ter­mezzo (www.cafein­ter­mezzo.com) can’t be beat. This Mid­town cafe, pop­u­lar as much for its French cafe-style out­door seat­ing as its late-night hours, spe­cial­izes in rich cakes, deca­dent pies and other desserts our read­ers love. Mod­eled in the vein of a Euro­pean cof­fee house, Cafe In­ter­mezzo is an easy choice for a solo cho­co­late run or an intimate cof­fee chat with a spe­cial friend.

Best Mex­i­can

when it comes to suc­cess for new restau­rants. But M572 (www.five­sev­entwo.com) has risen above the pack, ac­cord­ing to our vot­ers who deemed this Tucker hot-spot the best new restau­rant. Ex­ec­u­tive chef Jon Allen—a Ge­or­gia na­tive—whips up his own brand of in­ven­tive south­ern com­fort food served in a farm­house-style set­ting. Clock­wise from left: A deft touch and play­ful in­ter­pre­ta­tion of New Amer­i­can cui­sine has earned Food Net­work alum­nus Alexis Her­nan­dez the ti­tle of top lo­cal chef among our read­ers. When awe­some pa­tio seat­ing is a pri­or­ity, our read­ers say Henry’s Mid­town Tav­ern is hands down the place to be. No foodie city is com­plete with­out a wide range of high-end Mex­i­can din­ing op­tions – and No Mas! Cantina is your unan­i­mous pick. (Cour­tesy photos) din­ing room opens onto a sprawl­ing pa­tio fac­ing one of the busiest in­ter­sec­tions in Mid­town. Dine on a di­verse menu rang­ing from seared salmon to gourmet frank­furters while tak­ing in the street sights.

Sec­ond and third run­ners up were Roxx Tav­ern (www.rox­xfan­club.com), and Tacos & Te­qui­las (www.tand­tat­lanta.com).
