Zagat names Atlanta’s ’10 Hottest New Bars'

ATLANTA -- Zagat has released its list of the “10 Hottest New Bars” in Atlanta. The list includes new places and established ones, such as Holeman & Fitch, doing new things, the food guide says.

In introducing the list, Zagat said, “If you want a drink, you're in the right city. Whether you're looking for a quiet place to confer with knowledgeable mixologists about a still-under-the-radar Italian liqueur, a rowdy place to throw back some cold ones with friends or just a casual neighborhood joint where the cocktails are great, the drinking scene in Atlanta provides. Where are Atlantans drinking right now? What's hot and new? Read on to find out.”

Bars on the list include:

*Bar Amalfi (Zagat says, “This breezy Home Park bar in the Piazza San Gennaro mini-complex conjures sunny thoughts of coastal Italy, with striped blue-and-white umbrellas and open-air cabanas draped in flowing linens.”)

Mellow Mushroom's Up in Smoke featured pizza is the Fully Blazed Chicken Mole Pie, which has a mole sauce base and is topped with grilled chicken, caramelized onions, the chain's signature mushroom trio, and mozzarella and feta cheeses.

A large pepperoni, mushroom and extra cheese Pizza Hut pizza was the first physical good ever purchased online, according to Pizza Hut chief marketing officer Carrie Walsh.
