An absolute wonderland of all things culinary, Star Provisions has a butcher, a baker, cheese and fish mongers, plus a packed gallery of gorgeous accoutrements for food prep and serving. It’s like walking into the personal larders and pantries of Atlanta’s best restaurants and getting to pick out whatever you want! More than a gourmet grocery, the shop runs a robust counter service, offering sandwiches, sides, breads, and
ready-made desserts that are perfect
for a quick lunch or supper.

Naturally, I’m a huge fan of Alabama-based designer Billy Reid, but it’s not just because we share a home state. His menswear line is impeccably hand-tailored with sharp, classic detailing that makes every piece a wearable work of art. While you’re there, check out the selection of colorful and comfy Zkano socks—another Alabama goodie—crafted from organic cotton by my friend Gina’s family-owned company.

If you have friends who love to cook (or just love to eat!), pop into this shop and peruse the selection of housemade pickles, chutneys, and gourmet edibles. They’re perfect for housewarming gifts or just for eating straight from the jar.
