Thank you so much, those places look good- will definitely be checking them out.
Lived in Atlanta for a decade, these are ranked in order of if I had X meals to eat before I died where would I go
1. Flip Burger- I have taken 20+ people here, not one has not said "this is the best burger I have ever had". Try the liquid nitrogen Krispy Kreme donut milkshake as well. Absolutely destroys the vortex
2. Abatoir (or any other star provision like Bachanlia http://www.starprovisions.com/). Suggestions: wagyu flat iron, charcuterie plate
3. Monterey mexican- tex mex style dirty mexican, great margaritas/queso/fajitas- http://www.yelp.com/biz/monterrey-grill-and-bar-atlanta
