At Anne Quatrano's meat-centric Abattoir (the name literally means slaughterhouse), you can find meat, meat, and well, more meat. Pig murals and butchery diagrams literally line the walls. But don't expect the typical charcuterie plates and pork belly from 2012 Atlanta Rising Star Chef Tyler Williams. Instead, the menu at this Westside restaurant is playful and creative. Williams injects just enough of his personality into each dish to make the food fun, without being trite. He nods to Asian inspiration with Eastern ingredients (steak tartare gets a welcome update with the addition of Asian pear, unagi sauce, and Korean chili flakes). But Williams also keeps things meaty with interesting cuts and skillful preparation (don't miss the corned Wagyu beef belly).

Recommended Dishes:
