Going to Atlanta

I am going to Atlanta on business next week. Any suggestions for myself as well as entertaining clients?

  1. Restaurant Eugene, Woodfire Grill, Alfredo's Italian, Floataway Cafe, Nam, Sage on Sycamore, these are just a few. Where is your hotel?

    1. Bone's, Aria, Antica Posta in Buckhead

      South City Kitchen, Ecco, Trois in Midtown.

      1. I like Murphy's in Va.Highland

        1. re: WCchopper

          Murphy's is so inconsistent. Their chef left to fix the menu at Lobby. They have just hired a new GM, he is a great guy, and hopefully he can return Murphy's to greatness.

        2. For entertaining, Bone's is wonderful.

          1. Restaurant Eugene may be the best in town and is a little jewel-box.
            Bones has the best steak. You will be called "folks" at the front desk, which could embarass sophisticated clients.
            Woodfire Grill (front cafe portion only), Ecco, The Grape (6-7 locations) and Vine all have excellent small plates and huge wine lists; of them, I like Vine the best.
            Little Schezuan is the best Chinese in town and maybe one of the 5 best restaurants in town. Not beautiful, but astonishingly cheap.
            Sotto Sotto has great pasta.
            Oceanaire Seafood Room has the best seafood and is very impressive.
            Pano & Paul is plush and 1970's old-fashioned but has fine food, as do some of the other members of the Buckhead Life Group; namely Pricci, Kyma and Veni Vedi Vici (avoid the others).
            Service is mostly hick-town and hyped (you will be told your waiter's first name in most places and called "you guys").
            Many of the other prestige places are very over-rated.
