8ARM is a restaurant in a sprawling ranch-style building, divided into multiple spaces: // Our main dining room is a light and airy, full service Restaurant featuring locally and responsibly sourced food, inspired by the heritages of our culinary staff, ranging from the American South to Mexico, Vietnam, and Poland. A lot of our dishes feature house-ground masa from our in-house masa program. // In the upper level of our building we have a // Our award-winning Cocktail and Natural Wine Bar is housed in a shipping container on our patio, which is covered, as well as enclosed and heated when weather demands. This lively space features a cocktail menu that changes frequently, if not daily, featuring local and regional spirits and in-season produce. Our wine program features adventurous wine, funky wine, fruity wine, dry wine and sweet; wine from neutral barrels, clay or steel; wine from new and old vines and places. We have classic styles from the early champions of natural wine and plenty more from up-and-coming cult stars. This space is also where we host a variety of events, including the best party in Atlanta: Chaka Khan Hacienda, along with pool parties, goth danse, and more. // Sidepiece is our outdoor kitchen with a wood-fire grill, featuring a to-go menu of tacos, tamals, cha gio egg rolls, and more.
Saturday night dinner service was the highlight of our trip to Atlanta! The staff at 8arm is special.
Delicious as always. One of the best restaurants in the city!
a delight. The cocktail menu inspired. The quality of the cocktails live up to their ingenious names and descriptions, which is so often not the case in many instances. The creative, flavor bending ideas behind the legumes, pastes, seasoning and pairings were so heartwarming to discover, one after another as they land on the table. We ordered everything on the menu but the steak and the egg. We think we did the right thing, although we'd love to go back and try those. oysters were offered raw or broiled with a cheve butter. We couldn't decide so we order some of each. The one mistake we made was to order the pink Pet Nat (Tete Rouge Free Mouse) after the oysters. Please drink it with the oysters if you love them. It was sparkling and magical in any case but.. The atmosphere is cozy and comforting. I was obsessed with a particular ceramic lamp by the front door, the mural by the kitchen and the tinted lighting out the back windows. Go there. We realized there was a 4 page write up about the chef's brilliance in Bon Appetit this month. We already had made the reservations so we were feeling pretty well pleased with ourselves.
This is the first time it’s not a sweep of 10s. Music was ridiculously loud, and badly suited to a dining experience. Server, for first time ever was clueless. Food is as always really great. The dinner was saved by a sever who used to work in the bar that was both knowledgeable and personable.
By far my worst experience yet at 8arm. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes?
