Exploring Atlanta's gastropub scene

Exploring Atlanta's gastropub scene

ATLANTA - The term "gastropub" was coined in the UK in the 90s, marrying the terms "gastronomy" and "pub" (or "publick house" for you completists). The idea was geared toward freshening traditional pub food and creating cuisine that was more adventurist and creative, but that was not unattainable.

In Atlanta, gastropubs have surfaced and crafted a niche for themselves that have attracted some of the world's elite chefs. New gastropubs are showing up with regularity across the area, but if you want to cut your teeth, here's a selection of some of Atlanta's gastropubs.

EMORY, Ga. -- Atlanta's Emory Point has a new dining spot as Bonefish Grill opened its doors last night at 1540 Avenue Place, Suite B-240.  The ZAGAT award-winning, polished casual restaurant brings its wood-grilled fish, seafood and chops, sauces and indulgent desserts to Emory residents.  Bonefish couples food with a welcoming bar that features an array of cocktails, extensive craft beer selections, and an adventurous wine list.

To celebrate its opening with the local community, Bonefish Grill selected Friends of Music at Emory as a charity beneficiary and donated $5,000 to the organization.  Friends of Music board members, donors and Emory neighbors were invited to a special Grand Opening event on Dec. 8 to enjoy a sampling of the new restaurant's fresh seafood, cocktails, and ambiance.  The evening raised an additional $3,800 for Friends of Music at Emory through a silent auction and the generosity of donors in attendance.
