8) Lunacy Black Market. Paul Luna, one of the city's most gifted chefs, is also author of a children's book and a political activist. His eccentric imagination blooms here with an absurdly inexpensive menu of cross-cultural dishes meant for sharing. Lately, he and partner Cynthia Thonet have added a good wine list. Sundays, he features the pastas and risottos that initially made him famous in our city in the early '90s. Call ahead to make sure it's open. 231 Mitchell St. 404-736-6164. www.lunacyblackmarket.com.
7) Eclipse di Luna (Miami Circle location). Notice the name Luna. This restaurant was actually created years ago by Paul Luna (see above). I lunch here on inexpensive tapas so often with friends that my car feels like it's programmed with a homing device. Favorites are the glazed, spicy Spanish-style ribs; the plate of charcuterie and cheese; lamb meatballs and piquillos stuffed with honey-tinged goat cheese. But there's more, much more. 764 Miami Circle. 404-846-0449. www.eclipsediluna.com.
