Atlanta Graduation Dinner Rec.

coasterphil May 13, 2007 07:34 PM

There will be 3 of us heading out to celebrate a graduation 2 weeks from now and we would like to try the best that Atlanta has to offer. We don't want anything too stuffy, and because we all have different tastes a good variety of menu options would be best. Other than that, we don't have any other requirements but the budget. I'd like to keep the entree prices around $30 if possible, but if there is a restaurant that you guys really feel is worth the extra $10 or a so a plate, feel free to throw it out there.

Thanks for the help.

    Restaurant Eugene sounds like what you are looking for.

      Restaurant Eugene is my favorite place of its kind in Atlanta. Never fails and the service is extraordinary. If you enjoy foie gras, look for it on the menu. Linton Hopkins (the chef) always seems to do something amazing with it. Dinner may be a bit beyond what you indicated you want to spend, but I think it is worth it. Also, consider the Sunday Supper (you can read about it on the link sent to you above). Dinner that night is $30 and you will get some interesting and tasty choices.

      I love Restaurant Eugene! A few other options would be Woodfire Grill, Floataway Cafe, Anis.
      Have fun while you are in town!

        I'd also add Kyma, Portofino, Murphy's, La Tavola, Horseradish Grille.

          I agree with all except Horseradish Grille, I have had major service problems there lately. It's the same thing with Canoe.

            Really? I haven't been there in awhile, but have fond memories. That's too bad.
