Visiting Alanta...where should I......


Will be staying at the Georgian Terrace.

Could someone please recommend a few choices, please? Our interests include upscale Italian, high-quality sushi, and casual brew-pubs, to name a few.

But we're open to anything different and exciting!

  1. MF Sushi, on Ponce, is supposed to be excellent.

    Baraonda is an Italian/wood-burning-oven-pizza place that's tasty.

    DO NOT eat at Eno which is somewhat close to the hotel. Have a glass of wine there, but no food.

    1. MF Sushi is great! Italian, Antica Posta is wonderful, there is also La Grotta, and Alfredo's on Cheshire Bridge.
      In Decatur there is The Angel and Brick Store Pub. Wonderful for beer.
      Have fun in Atlanta!

      1. I love, love, love Thai Palate on Ponce (it's right next to MF Sushi)...

          MF Sushi is great, if you can go at lunch you can save a couple of bucks
          as mentioned Baraonda is a great choice for good gourmet pizzas
          Gordon Bierch is also close to your hotel and they have pretty good beer.
          the Brick Store Pub is the best place for beer in ATL (you can hop on the Marta and get off at the Decatur square/Downtown Decatur exit)
          La Tavola in virginia highlands has great italian. and Murphy's has great food with a better wine selection

        2. This isn't along the lines of the things you mentioned, but Apres Diem in Midtown is a good bistro-type place for coffee/ dessert or a light meal. It's not cutting-edge or anything, but the food is generally good and it's a nice place to hang out.

          1. Baraonda,which was mentioned below, is just across the street and very good - especially pizzas from their wood burning oven. My favorite upscale Italian is Sotto Sotto, which is just across the highway off of Freedom Parkway by the Jimmy Carter Museum. Best in town - fresh pastas, fish cooked in parchment, great wine list and yummy desserts. You'll love it - be sure to call for reservations so you can get in.

              Sotto Sotto is outstanding. Fritti next door has some great gourmet pizza
