 Fresh on the Scene: The Cockentrice, Made Kitchen and Cocktails, and DISH DIVE

In a restaurant era that favors the big, splashy, and boozy, this BYOB hideaway from Top Flr cofounder Jeff Myers and chef Travis Carroll is a rare sight. Dished out of a postage-stamp-sized cottage, the low-key offerings are cheaper than expected and big on comfort. Shakshuka topped with fried egg and crumbled feta and the charred Brussels sprouts with sweet yucca root stand as some of the more high-minded plates. Just as easily, the kitchen will let loose with hot dogs with beer mustard and french fries with mushroom gravy and duck confit. 2233 College Avenue, 404-790-0418 - See more at:
