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

    I like pura vida in Poncey Highlands for Tapas. There is also a new place behind Bachanalia called JCT Kitchen. I have not been but the menu looks pretty cool.

      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.

        For entertaining, Bone's is wonderful.

            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.

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