Atlanta Restaurant Scene

Which Atlanta restaurant was the top pick on GQ's Best New Restaurants of 2016 list?

It's hard to imagine a restaurant having more of a banner first year than the Old Fourth Ward spot Staplehouse.

The restaurant, which opened in October 2015, was awarded three stars from the AJC in January and was named a James Beard Foundation Award finalist for Best New Restaurant earlier this year.

Staplehouse didn't take the award home , but the praise is still rolling in, this time from GQ. The restaurant was the top pick on the magazine's annual Best New Restaurants list.

Writer Brett Martin said his meal at Staplehouse was his "favorite meal in a new restaurant all year," adding, "All of it was both immaculate and soulful, a menu designed not to dazzle but to feed."
