This Midtown spot interweaves Cajun, Vietnamese and Mediterranean flavors in ways we never knew possible. For a personification of creative fusion, try the falafel banh-mi sandwich—cauliflower falafel, pickled veggies and remoulade. An extensive bar program helps you wash it all down with concoctions (that are just as creative as the food) like the BonTon Hurricane or the Tasteless Gentlemen.

This Indian eatery serves up a long menu with global influences peppered throughout. While most dishes showcase the vibrant spices and flavors of Northern India—including some of our favorites like tandoori chicken, lamb biriyani and palak paneer—other dishes add pops of from around the world. Take the calamari cochin, for instance, which spices the traditionally Mediterranean fried squid dish with Indian masala. Best yet, this menu is bursting with options for vegans and vegetarians.

Why choose between eating Korean and Mexican food when you can have the tastiest of both worlds? Enter Takorea. This favorite local spot, which has two locations in Metro Atlanta, brings Asian flavor to Tex-Mex favorites, like the kimchi fried rice and gogi nachos. We can’t get enough of the crazy-good sesame fries served with house-made chipotle ketchup. To cap it all off, try the mind-blowing churro bread pudding.
