Paces / Northside

Home of the well-heeled and well-educated, ambitious mothers are usually left at home with not much to do except defend their neighborhoods against impending urbanism and eminent domain. The only thing these über-moms can’t settle is the outcome of the area’s biggest sporting event, the annual Lovett-Westminster lacrosse match.

...But My In-Laws Don't Drink

So find a nice place to walk with them then. Like a sports bar, a Civil War burial ground or a park.

Goldberg's Bagel Company & Deli
Atlantans like to think we're pretty sophisticated about our food. New Yorkers, however, think they've cornered the market on things like pizza and bagels. Well, around here, if you want a "real" bagel, Goldberg's is where you need to go. You may not be in a Manhattan deli, but the rings of yumminess Wayne's crew produces daily are as close as you’ll find. For breakfast or lunch, go with a bagel and schmear or check out the full menu for lox, French toast or omelettes, or huge deli sandwiches from turkey to reubens. You'll also find casseroles to bake at home in the freezer case and ready-made salads to take to the office if you're in a rush. Some of us think Goldberg's gives those NYC places a solid run for their money--see what you think!

Orient Express
Contrary to popular belief, this is not a dining car experience delivering passengers from Paris to Istanbul. And so far (cross your fingers), there have been no murder cases en route. No, this is not the Agatha Christie claim-to-fame Orient Express recognized by elite travelers since the late 19th century. This is a novel dining adventure. Your station stop:  Vinings. Your destination:  A pu pu platter of versatility. Whoever thought up the idea of integrating traditional Asian cuisine with the entertainment of the Hibachi grill, and then adding the tasteful benefits of a sushi extravaganza was sheer genius. This is cloud nine for the indecisive. No longer do prospective patrons have to bicker over “dinner and a show” v. unagi with some edamame and a spicy tuna roll. Believe it or not, they can make up their mind once they arrive at the restaurant. Genius, I tell you! To your right, you’ll be dazzled with flying shrimp and onion volcanoes. To your left, a more serene scene to enjoy your Nigiri N’then some. Kick it up a notch and ask to eat in the gutted, then decorated antique train car. Whatever your choice, that’s the beauty of the Orient Express.

Goldberg's Bagel Company & Deli
When you think of Southern comfort food, biscuits and gravy, slow-cooked grits, and anything fried comes to mind. On the contrary, mention old-world New York cooking and you’ll likely stir up a stereotypical Friday night dinner at Bubbie’s. Move over Carnegie and Katz because the New York standard has moved below the Mason-Dixon line. The popularity of Goldberg’s has grown so much that they now have several locations in Atlanta. For deli amateurs, this abridged Kosher-to-English dictionary will hopefully help you narrow down (and understand) your order: • Bialy (n): a hole-less bagel that will leave you in desperate need of a breath mint. • Chopped liver (n): made with onions, hard-boiled eggs, and chicken fat (see schmaltz), it’s an acquired taste. • Half-sour (n/adj): the only way to pickle a pickle. • Kipper (n): salted, smoked herring, mostly enjoyed by people over 50. • Latke (n): the long-time companion to sour cream and applesauce. • Schmaltz (n): Kosher Crisco. • Schmear (n/v): covers the naked bagel. Now that you’re up to snuff, impress your waiter by ordering in the native tongue (p.s. that’s on the menu too).
