MINERO IN THE PRESS

5 Restaurants to Try This Weekend in Atlanta
Eater Atlanta

I recently attended a progressive dinner through Ponce City Market’s food hall. The dinner made stops at Biltong Bar (absolutely one of the ATL’s top five bars,) W.H. Stiles Fish Camp (“Dub’s”,) Minero for tacos and margaritas, and finally ending at Bellina Alimentari for grappa and desserts. Obviously, there’s not a lot of secret stuff happening in one of Atlanta’s most popular eating destinations — Ponce City Market. But, I want to commend the work of Dub’s executive chef Eaksuree Poonsiripukdeekul, who made what has to be the best oyster shooter I’ve had in the city. Poonsiripukdeekul, who hails from Thailand, created an insanely addictive, super-citrusy shooter using bivalves chef-owner Anne Quatrano’s team source for the restaurant’s raw bar. And, if you haven’t had the shrimp po’boy, I highly recommend ordering that, too — if you don’t overdose on those oyster shooters first. 675 Ponce de Leon Avenue, Atlanta

Top 10 Food Vendors in Ponce City Market
Culinary Local

I have lived in Georgia for the vast majority of my life, but I lived in Orlando from August 2014 – July 2017. As soon as I moved back, everyone kept telling me about Ponce City Market. When I would say that I hadn’t been there yet, the reaction was always the same. “You have to go! It’s amazing!” I went for the first time a few weeks after moving back, and it really was and is amazing. The old Sears & Roebuck building is absolutely stunning. The selection of stores is awesome, and it’s always fun to go on the weekends with your friends or significant other. One of the best parts of Ponce City Market is the wide variety of food options. You can pretty much eat anything you want, no matter what kind of cuisine you’re looking for! Before you head out, check out this list of the top food vendors in Ponce City Market!

6 spots to get your wing fix in Atlanta
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

You wouldn’t expect a Ponce City Market taco stall to be cooking up some of the best wings in Atlanta, but that’s exactly what’s happening here. Most of the wings you’ll find in Atlanta are either fried or grilled. These bad boys are grilled over charcoal, giving them the slightly bitter flavor of great barbecue. The crispy skin gives way to juicy, flavorful meat.  They are then doused with Valentina hot sauce. Be careful with your first bite, because you’re going to be hooked immediately.

Five Atlanta Restaurant Trends To Dig Into
The Atlanta Journal Constitution

Burn it. Blister it. Get it black. That’s the prep method of the moment. Yet, charring is hardly reserved these days for Spanish octopus or seasonal produce that spans from apples to sweet potatoes. Even sauce is game for scorching. Head to Nikolai’s Roof in the Hilton Hotel (255 Courtland St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-572-6548, nikolaisroof.com) for white miso that’s burnt to utter blackness. The dark as night, umami-laden sauce is landing on dishes like beef carpaccio and seared diver scallops with savory cheesecake. And don’t miss the pork carnitas taco at Sean Brock’s new Minero at Ponce City Market (675 Ponce De Leon Ave. N.E., Atlanta. 404-532-1580, minerorestaurant.com) for a taste of chimole, a spicy vinegar made from a puree of blackened chiles and onions. This trend might just be the home cook’s saving grace: “Honey, I burned it on purpose. All the chefs are doing it.”
