Restaurant Spotlight Lure

Atlanta's own Fifth Group Restaurants is one of the most successful and revered culinary camps in the city, and they have added a new eatery that is sure to keep resident's tongues wagging. Aptly called Lure, this hotspot aims to draw you in with delectable seafood, incredible atmosphere and an overall superior dining experience. Let's dig in! Nestled sleekly in the Midtown neighborhood, Lure serves expertly prepared seafood dishes that have a winning mixture of innovation and familiarity.

This basically means that you don't have to be a die-hard foodie with a sophisticated palate to enjoy the food. Executive Chef David Bradley states that his goal "is to make Lure a prominent destination for delicious coastal cuisine in Atlanta." Also adding that "sourcing only the freshest sustainable seafood and seasonal produce is crucial to what we want to offer at Lure, it's the only way to ensure we serve the finest food to our guests every day." After boasting about the commitment to the food he serves, you're probably wondering just what sets the menu apart from the steep seafood restaurant competition in Atlanta.

Some of the menu highlights are pretty impressive, with offerings including: bluefish with pickled beets and creme fraiche, rainbow trout pate with boiled egg and horseradish, spicy veracruz-style seafood cocktail clams, shrimp, mussels, citrus and a shot of Hennepin ale, calendar island mussels steamed with wheat beer, orange and creme fraiche, sauteed red grouper curried creamed corn, yogurt, spicy lime pickle, and last but not least grilled whole Georgia rainbow trout served head-and-all with muscadine butter and new potatoes.

To top off your meal nicely, there are a host of cocktails, wines and other creative concoctions to make your Lure experience one to remember. Lure is located at 1106 Crescent Avenue N.E., Atlanta, 404-817-3650. Operating hours are: Dinner: 5-10 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays; 5-11 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays. Bar: 4 p.m.-late Sundays-Saturdays.
