Barton G or Talula

My sister is going out for her birthday and is having trouble picking one of these two restaurants for a special night out. Any suggestions or preferences would be appreciated or if you think she should go another way i wouldn't mind hearing that as well.

  1. Well, the new chef (Richard Blais) just left a restaurant here in Atlanta and he is pretty talented. Check out photos of my meals at his place:

    I would recommend Barton G.

    Edit. Blais has not yet started at Barton G.

    1. I've eaten at both and like Talula a lot better. I think the food is better and less gimicky and that the restaurant overall is much less of a "scene" than Barton G sometimes is. On a busy Saturday, Barton G never has the table ready on time and often seems to be packed with annoying out of town types while Talula feels more local and neighborhoodish. They are just very different restaurants.

      If they end up at Talula, they should try the vidalia onion tart.

        1. The food sounds more interesting ay Talula but I thought maybe the atmosphere and presentation would be more festive at Barton G

          1. She is also considering Duo and Big Fish...
