The Beltline is known as a great place to walk – and eat. That was reaffirmed last week when Bon Appetit named two new area restaurants as as among the best in the country.
Bread & Butterfly in Inman Park and Staplehouse in Old Fourth Ward drew rave reviews for their food and their welcoming atmosphere.
“In a dream world, you could park yourself at a bistro table on the porch in the morning with your laptop and a Counter Culture Coffee cortado and not leave until you’ve finished lunch, dinner, dessert…” the review describes Bread & Butterfly.
The Inman Park restaurant is named after a whimsical creature in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, the Bon Appetit article notes.
Staplehouse is described as “the next step in modern Southern cooking” with “its boundary-pushing food, served with genuine hospitality,” in the Bon Appetit review.
It is operated by Ryan and Kara Smith and Jen Hidinger, and fulfills the dream of Ryan Hidinger, who passed away in 2014. All profits from Staplehouse go to The Giving Kitchen, a nonprofit which provides emergency assistance to restaurant workers, according to the restaurant’s website.
Bread & Butterfly is owned by Billy and Kristin Allin, who also own the well-known Decatur restaurant, Cakes & Ale. They also own Proof Bakeshop in Inman Park, which supplies baked goods to both their restaurants.
Bread & Butterfly is located at 290 Elizabeth Street, Suite F, Atlanta, GA. Staplehouse is located at 541 Edgewood Ave. SE, Atlanta, GA 30312
