On the east side of GA 400, diners will find Foundation Social Eatery (1570 Holcomb Bridge Road), a restaurant with a menu as complex and refined as any you'll find at a Midtown hot spot. Chef and owner Mel Toledo offers up a seasonally rotating menu filled with dishes that are upscale but approachable for the casual diner. Meat, pasta, seafood, soups and salad are available to order and the Crisp Spanish Octopus is a must try no matter the season.
When you crave a taste of New Orleans cuisine but can't get to southern Louisiana, head to Adele's on Canton (1169 Canton St.). A relaxed dining experience welcomes guests who can order breakfast, lunch and dinner from a menu that includes po-boys, muffulettas, gumbo, red rice and beans, jambalaya, pralines, beignets and Community Coffee.
