News for Restaurants in Atlanta
Restaurateur Frank Bragg of Radial Cafe knows he needs to listen to his customers, in this case his neighbors, and so he did, acceding to their wishes for beer and wine and dinner. Now added to the line-up, dinner embraces a number of fine regional dishes, using local products whenever possible. Brasstown Beef (from over the Georgia/North Carolina line) supplies the meat for the short ribs and the other beef dishes. Bragg does fish and grits, traditional in southeast Georgia, rather than the ubiquitous shrimp and grits, a low country inspiration. Caramel cake for dessert will make you feel you're still a kid being spoiled by your grandmother. Vegans and vegetarians may choose from plenty of innovative fare. The restaurant is closed entirely on Wednesdays. Radial Cafe, 1530 DeKalb Ave. NE, Ste. G, Atlanta, GA 30307, 404-659-6594.
