This week's top dish from Eater Atlanta, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...

MIDTOWN—In December, the One Group brought us Atlantans an outpost of STK (you know, the lady steakhouse). This week, they gifted the corner of Peachtree & 12th with another NYC-based restaurant, Cucina Asellina (an extension of New York's Ristorante Asellina), serving "rustic Italian" dishes.

WESTSIDE & BUCKHEAD—Next Wednesday, February 29, local foodies can support healthy food in the city through two restaurant fundraisers. JCT. Kitchen & Bar will host a Local Lunch Break for Schools, benefiting Michelle Obama's Chefs Move to Schools program; and Farm Burger Buckhead has planned a special event to raise funds for the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.

OLD FOURTH WARD—In crime news, earlier this week, the owner of Banna Grocery was killed and Sugar Coated Radical was robbed. Michaela of the Atlanta Underground Market is organizing a "cash mob" at SCR this Sunday to help the store get back on its feet.

NATIONAL—Eater's head-to-head national tournament of all the 17 Eater sites' Hottest Chefs continues today with Atlanta's own winner Ted Lahey of Table & Main facing off against Washington, DC's John Critchley of Urbana. Look for all the sexiness here.
