While 2012 Atlanta Rising Star Chef Robert Phalen's first outlet, Holy Taco, is spot in the middle of East Atlanta, his second, One Eared Stag, is almost hidden away on a side street in Inman Park. But the homey-space is worth searching for; it's the type of place you'll want to hang out in all day (and drink in all night). An Old World-style communal table fills the dining room, and fresh produce and artful vegetable diagrams give the space an almost vintage feel. Phalen's composed presentations (think Michael Bras meets Alice Waters), combine the sensibility of Southern cuisine, distinct flavor combinations, and a touch of fancy living. Whether he's transforming Japanese favorite tuna collar into an approachable (and luxurious) meal, or updating the classic French radish salad with whipped lardo, this chef is dreaming up big things for Atlanta.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Oysters Crudo, Watermelon, Basil, Smoked Trout Roe, and Preserved Lemon
