What’s new on dining scene

New 5&10 Athens location open

On July 10, chef Hugh Acheson’s 5&10 moved into its new, fancier home in a historic house on South Milledge Avenue in Athens. The restaurant is offering light lunch, dinner and brunch in a remodeled space that features three dining rooms, a bar and a coffee counter. Meanwhile, Acheson revealed to the Athens Banner-Herald that he has big plans for the original 5&10 location on South Lumpkin Street. Look for a locally inspired Mexican spot, tentatively called Cinco y Diez, with former Farm 255 chef Whitney Otawka in the kitchen. 1073 S. Milledge Ave., Athens. 706-546-7300,

Timone’s set to open in Morningside

Ron Eyester, chef/owner of Rosebud and the Family Dog, has been busy previewing his third Morningside restaurant, Timone’s, for press and friends and family. The New York-style “local pizza joint” is located in the short-lived Waffold space on the same Highland Avenue block as Rosebud. Look for starters like baked clams and fried calamari and red sauce favorites like meatballs and eggplant Parmesan, with beer and wine on draft at the bar. 1409 N. Highland Ave. 404-809-2979,

Kevin Rathbun Steak among ‘20 Best’

On July 12, The Daily Meal published America’s 20 Best Steakhouses with Atlanta’s Kevin Rathbun Steak at No. 5 on a list that includes Peter Luger in New York and Bern’s in Tampa. Rathbun called the news “fantastic.” And he said it was especially welcome in a week when he was still dealing with a kitchen fire that had closed another one of his four restaurants, Rathbun’s in Inman Park, and recovering from a fractured ankle, sustained while he was sorting through damage from the fire. 154 Krog St. N.E. 404-524-5600,

Chef Hector Santiago headed to Abattoir

Former “Top Chef” contestant Hector Santiago is the new executive chef at Abattoir, the meaty restaurant from Bacchanalia chefs/owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison. Santiago was the chef/owner of a trio of popular Poncey-Highland Latin concepts, Pura Vida, Super Pan Latino, and El Burro Pollo, which closed in 2012, when the lease expired on the space. He said he’ll be making changes to the Abattoir menu in the next few weeks. 1170 Howell Mill Road. 404-892-3335,

How your martini turns out says a lot about night at the Colonnade

I hadn’t been to the Colonnade in four years.  Hoping to right this wrong, I emailed two friends and asked them to go with me for martinis and fried chicken on a Wednesday night. My last visit to the iconic Atlanta restaurant located on Cheshire Bridge Road was a year before they rocked the city with big news — the Colonnade would...
Equipment check: look before you cook
Equipment check: look before you cook

First of all, you need a proper steamer. I did not have one when I set out to make bao, a steamed bun popular in Asian cuisines, but I realized it too late in the game.  Using the cookbook Molly on the Range by food blogger Molly Yeh as my guide, I took on the task of making the buns from scratch. Yeh's dad is Chinese, and she grew up eating the...

To elevate a side dish, put something on top

We're rethinking garnishes here at #DinnerInMinutes Central. They can provide nutrition, not just color or crunch. We have sprinkled spiced ground lamb atop a roasted red pepper soup and added meaty heft to a plate of whipped hummus. Here, a few ounces of protein elevate a smart couscous side dish to main-course status. The original recipe comes from...

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you’re cooking wrong

For me, cooking is fun. It’s a hobby, and there are few things I enjoy more than spending an entire Saturday afternoon assembling an elaborate dish that will wow my dinner guests. Sadly, this personal passion doesn’t jibe with my real life. In real life, I get home from work and face a hungry family ready to eat NOW. Even worse, many members...
