Smyrna is under the radar now, but it’s about to be the next “it” suburb. Thanks to its close proximity to the city center, developments (hello, SunTrust Park) and a crop of new restaurants springing up, this OTP ‘burb is on the rise. The “Jonquil City” was established in 1872 and has a village green at its center with city hall, government buildings and restaurants. Throughout the year you’ll find festivals and events on the green, like the Fall Jonquil Festival.
Adjacent to Smyrna is Vinings, an unincorporated neighborhood tucked between Smyrna and Buckhead. A railroad track runs through the neighborhood’s center, which causes traffic woes, but despite that, the town is charming with river access and darling shopping plazas. Together the two areas make “Smynings” and are both worth getting to know as they teem with outdoor activities, dining and entertainment.
SMYNINGS FOOD & DRINK
The Battery Atlanta may be particularly hopping during baseball season, but there are plenty of reasons to visit the mixed-use development throughout the year. The standout among the dining options there is C. Ellet’s, Linton Hopkin’s steakhouse. It breaks from steakhouse tradition with a light and airy atmosphere, but still maintains an air of elegance. Go big or go home: order the 18-ounce 35 dry-aged Kansas City strip. Add a side of the roasted hen of the woods mushrooms and a Battery Boulevardier, a concoction of bourbon, campari, cinzano rosso and carpano antica, and you’ll be good to go. Other excellent but more casual options in the Battery include Feed Fried Chicken + Such and reality TV-famous Wahlburgers.
