Two Atlanta spots were named to Bon Appetit magazine’s recent list of 50 Best New Restaurants in the county, and if you follow the Atlanta food scene, the selections should come as little surprise.
The restaurant, helmed by Chef Ryan Smith, also received a three star review from AJC food and dining editor Ligaya Figueras, and was named to the top of GQ’s Best New Restaurants of 2016 list.
The brainchild of Jen and Ryan Hidinger, Staplehouse functions as a for-profit subsidiary of the Giving Kitchen, a not-for-profit charity that provides emergency grants to metro Atlanta restaurant workers. Ryan Hidinger passed away in 2014.
Bread & Butterfly, the latest restaurant from Chef Billy Allin, who also owns the much-lauded Cakes & Ale in Decatur and Proof Bakeshop in Inman Park, received a three star review from AJC food writer Wyatt Williams and was named the best spot for pancakes in the AJC Brunch Guide.
Bon Appetit will announce the Top 10 best new Restaurants in the country on Aug. 16. See the full list of 50 here.
