Atlantic Station has some of the most high traffic restaurants in Midtown. And this gentrified, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood has another one of my favorite lunch spots: Strip (part of Here To Serve Restaurants) is located directly between the movie theater and Rosa Mexicano.
I recommend Strip because they offer 3 daily $10 specials. (1) Miso soup, crunchee roll, cheesecake, (2) Small salad, cheeseburger, cheesecake, (3) Small salad, chef’s special, cheesecake. I vote for the chef’s special. My last visit was steelhead served over southwest chipotle linguine with black beans and corn. DEELISH. Lunch-date Jonesy was completely jealous, even though she devoured her juicy cheeseburger.
One of the things I love about Strip is the variety of seating options. Downstairs has the long bar, the dining room, the patio and a private room. Upstairs you’ll find the sushi bar, the lounge, the deck and a small dance floor (depending on the night). And further upstairs you’ll find another rooftop bar.
Strip may not be my favorite restaurant, but it’s cool. It is consistent and the food is pretty good. Try the lobster sliders. And when enjoying their fabulous drinks, try to remember that the underground parking is only free for the first two hours.
