Inman Park, Atlanta's first planned suburb located two miles from downtown, offers residents and visitors a "SmallTown DownTown". The area's mix of sophistication with whimsy, edginess with urbanity, and the enchantment of the past with the enthusiasm of the future make it a neighborhood not to be missed. Nestled near Little Five Points and Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown, Inman Park boasts some of the best restaurants in the city with some of the tastiest fare. Whether you are in the mood for refined and elegant or want to chow down on delectable edibles, there is definitely a place to suit your taste.
BoccaLupo - An Italian-American eatery owned by Atlanta-native chef, Bruce Logue. An intimate restaurant, BoccaLupo offers seating for 40 inside and patio dining for 18 guests. The menus resemble something you would find in a home kitchen in the North End of Boston, Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge or Central South Philly.
Across the Street - Mexican - Across the Street offers scrumptious Mexican inspired food. Along with traditional dishes, they offer menu items such as pan seared ahi tuna and pork tenderloin and mango. Antique hutches, Salvador Dali art, coral reef chandeliers and garage doors that lead to the patio give the place a unique and fun atmosphere. Wednesday nights are All-You-Can-Eat tacos and be sure to try the pomegranate margaritas!
BeetleCat - Only three months old, BeetleCat is a shore-style, casual cocktail lounge with a coastal 70s and 80s vibe in the Inman Park neighborhood’s new Inman Park Quarter. It's the perfect casual spot to grab a bite to eat in the early afternoon through dinner.
Highland Bakery - Bakery, Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Vegetarian Whether you're in the mood for sweets, breakfast, lunch or something in between, check out Highland Bakery. The setting seems fast-paced but the patio makes for an excellent spot to sip coffee, read the paper and enjoy sweet potato pancakes or make your own omelet. Get there early on the weekends, but while you wait, get a mini cupcake piled high with frosting to tie you over. The crab cake burger and fried chicken eggs Benedict should most definitely be indulged in.
