Adair Park residents are always on the lookout for new places to eat. Whether it be healthy, ethnic, wings, burgers, fish, etc. – if it is near us, someone in Adair Park has checked it out!

Drink ArtFirst up is Drink Art in Castleberry Hill. Owner/Chef Shandon Anderson (yes, that Shandon Anderson of the UGA men’s basketball team and the Utah Jazz among other NBA teams) has opened this great spot about a mile and a half from Adair Park. Chef Anderson has made some Thai favorites all vegan – including some curries, Pad Thai and fried rice. Several neighbors have been and all report back that the food is delicious and reasonably priced! Check out their menu and stop by soon! Open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday.

BartacoNext up is just Bartaco, which is just a little bit further down the road at less than 4 miles from Adair Park. It is located in the popular West Midtown district near 5 Seasons and Bocado on West Marietta Street. This new spot has established locations in New York and Connecticut, and already has plans to open others in Atlanta. Their menu features tacos, small plates and lots and lots of drinks. The patio is really nice and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. They have some great reviews on Yelp and it sounds like a great spot to eat. Check out their menu and stop by soon!

Adair Park featured in Beltline News Story

The west side trail of the Atlanta Beltline is getting underway soon! One of our own neighbors, Michelle Rushing, was featured along with Adair Park in this WSBTV recent news story. Michelle is actually a 10+ year resident of Adair Park. A little disconcerting that the money goes away if they have not broken ground by the fall, but from neighborhood meetings that seems easily attainable. Watch the video for more information.

Saporta Report – Welcome to Adair Park!

saportareport2

Maria Saporta, long-time reporter in Atlanta writing for the Atlanta Business Chronicle as well as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, recently visited Adair Park as her son, David Saporta Luse, moved into our fair neighborhood. David was drawn here after meeting a few neighbors and falling in love with the house he purchased. Maria wrote a fantastic post about David’s move into Adair Park. She paints a great picture of our great neighborhood, one we all know to be true. She also asks a great question that many of our neighbors have asked – while the neighborhood is growing and revitalizing with the new Beltline development just around the corner – are we looking out for our longer tenured residents?

Read Maria’s story here – http://saportareport.com/blog/2014/08/welcome-to-the-neighborhood-adair-park-a-historic-atlanta-gem/

This is a fantastic neighborhood and truly a gem in Atlanta that many residents love. Welcome to Adair Park David!
