Atlanta on Sunday night

My husband and I are probably going to be in Atlanta on Sunday night, and we're looking for a good recommendation for a special dinner. I know many places are closed on Sundays, so any recommendations for something that's open and good?

  1. Restaurant Eugene, they have a special Sunday night dinner. The food there is the best!

      Good call with Restaurant Eugene, I'll have to second that. Ecco on 7th st. is also really good. Great small plates and for dessert they do a burnt honey gorgonzola gelato that's heaven.

      1. re: jgraben

        Good calls both. The honey/gorgonzola is awesome, as are the goat cheese donut-y things (which is a small plate, not dessert, but could be).

          We too would agree: Eugene is one of our favorites in town. Lovely, quiet, elegant setting. One of the few places in Atl where you can dress up and not feel out of place. No shouting to be heard. Wine list not huge but very interesting and the manager/sommelier is delightful. Also--Sunday is Southern Food night! The chef, Linton Hopkins, does New American with a Southern spin and on Sundays does a separate menu of updated classic southern dishes. Can't miss.

          Other favorites like Bacchanalia and Floataway are closed on Sunday. Would also highly recomment Woodfire Grill. It's several notches more casual, not the decor of Eugene, but the chef, Michael Tuohy, is a wonderfully creative cook in the Alice Waters traidtion--emphasis on fresh, local, seasonal. The other hallmark is the huge wood-fired grill and oven. Try the incredible pizzas--Italian imported flour, artisanal mozzarella, etc. Also a big, very diverse and fun wine list AND on Sundays, a selection of bottles at half price!! Another can't miss.

    2. Try Canoe it is on the Chattahoochee River. You might also try The Dining Room at the Ritz Buckhead. Also Anthony's is very romantic. The all are relatively expensive but good food.

      1. Canoe is the only one of the previous restaraunts I mentioned that is open on Sunday but the setting is beautiful and the food excellent. Call and make a reservation and let them know it is a special occasion and ask for river viw seating.

        1. The Graveyard in East Atlanta Village has Sicilian specials on Sunday nights.
