Atlanta's size and traffic are legendary, so the key to navigating its 200-plus neighborhoods is knowing where the gems are. On a recent trip to the industrial area of Westside, Martha discovered (and fell in love with) the culinary market Star Provisions and the restaurant Bacchanalia, as well as the neighboring women's-clothing boutique Ann Mashburn. Just a couple of miles away is Buckhead Village. Known for its Georgian-style mansions and Civil War history, it is experiencing a renaissance, with an influx of distinctly modern newcomers (think artisanal cocktails and rosehip chocolates). It has the dreamy combination of old and new worlds that we find so exciting ... plus, it's easily walkable and provides a sense of this bustling Southern city's great charm, history, and style.
