Yelp chose the restaurants based on if they were full-service and opened after January 1, 2022 and then ranked them by total volume and ratings of reviews, health scores and the opinion of a Yelp trend expert.

Oreatha’s at The Point came in at #4 on the list. The restaurant opened in Atlanta’s historic Cascade Heights neighborhood and features a menu that is a mash-up of different flavors and cultures. Think an Italian Caprese salad with southern fried green tomatoes and succotash, Thai-seasoned catfish served with coconut grits and Oxtail lasagna.


Chamblee Mexican restaurant Oaxaca also made the list, coming in at #17. The menu features dishes straight from the southern Oaxaca region of Mexico including elote (grilled corn), churros, Tacos al Pastor and more.

The restaurant is so committed to authentic Oaxacan dishes that they import their corn -- which makes their tortillas -- directly from the region.
