I’ve never stopped and counted how many just Asian supermarkets there are in metro Atlanta, but I wager the number is larger than you think. And what’s so cool about them is that they don’t sell just groceries. Instead these mini-malls offer everything from dramatic Korean visors that block out all the sun to toilets with integrated bidets to slippers that sweep your floor as you walk. But the best part, undoubtedly, is the food court. While I have my favorite Asian food courts around Atlanta (more on that at a later date), it’s been a while since something got me as excited as I was during my visit to Jusgo Supermarket in Duluth.

Goglia has great presence as he circles the room in his suit, thick black glasses, and black hair, looking like a cross between Buddy Holly and Johnny Cash. But I wish he was behind the bar more teaching his staff how to make balanced drinks, because even though the mai tai came in a beautiful crystal glass crowned with a purple orchid, it was so sickly sweet I had to ask for extra lime juice to make it drinkable. The same fate befell my Old Fashioned, Daiquiri, and Whiskey Sour. I switched to beer during my last visit. The Ode to Viceroy, however, was a nicely tart and balanced drink of scotch, ginger, lime, and falernum. Should your party all be in the mood for the same drink, the bar offers classic cocktails such as martinis and Rob Roys made tableside.

The name of Chef Anthony Sanders and O. Osiris Ballard’s restaurant group, Good Food and Company, sums up their relationship perfectly.

“I’m good food, he’s company,” said Sanders, who has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant world. Ballard, on the other hand, comes from corporate America and the private business sector. Together, they’ve created Atlanta Breakfast Club, a cozy pit-stop near downtown’s major tourist attractions (the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Children’s Museum of Atlanta, among others) where other food options are somewhat limited. “We wanted to be in a diverse enough area where we see all types of people,” says Sanders. “We wanted to get tourists. We wanted to capture people that, already, were in the city. We wanted capture people that come to the city often.”
