- BEET IT: The Shed at Glenwood's roasted beets
10) Grant Park Coffeehouse I end up here every Sunday to write, sip espresso, and eat one of the many scones baked daily (like my favorite, Turkish apricot). Sandwiches aren't fancy but they're inexpensive ($6) and huge. A grilled cheese is only $4. You'll also find the King of Pops and High Road ice cream. Drawbacks? There are only two tables inside, so camping with your laptop might induce guilt. 753-A Cherokee Ave. 404-856-0433. www.grantparkcoffeehouse.com.
9) The Shed at Glenwood Yes, you already know: I've been going to the Shed every Wednesday for $3 slider night for three years. Lance Gummere, who left the restaurant a few months back, was a genius at making the sliders with unlikely ingredients. His regular menu of mainly comfort food was also an eclectic delight. Now Todd Richards has taken over as chef. The sliders, frankly, aren't quite as inspired, but Richards is brilliantly pushing the regular menu to borderline fine dining. Entrée examples are eggplant ravioli with lamb sausage, golden raisins, and hummus; and pan-seared scallops with cauliflower gratin and apple relish. There are many small plates with similar twists. 475 Bill Kennedy Way. 404-835-4363. www.theshedatglenwood.com.
