Need Delicious Atlanta Suggestions @ Perimeter Mall

Hi there:

I'll be in Atlanta for the first time in 4 years and would love some suggestions of where to eat. I'm staying at the W hotel by the Perimeter Mall (and my old stomping grounds were Midtown--I don't really know much about the area!) Looking for really tasty food--doesn't have to be fancy or pretentious--just fun.

BTW, I used to love Sotto Sotto restaurant in Little Five Points...anyone been there lately--is it still good?

Thank you in advance for your help--I really appreciate it!

    There are many places around Perimeter Mall for good eats.
    La Grotta for Italian, and Villa Christina, it is across 285.
    For steaks there is McKendricks, it is really good, kind of pricey, but well worth it.
    There is a McKormick and Schmidts (sp?) for seafood, and I know it's a chain but I really like their food.
    There is Goldfish, seafood, it is okay and Garrison's can be good, and Cheesecake Factory, yuck.
    There are a lot of options. I would just see what your mood is and go for it.
    Have a great stay. Oh and Sotto Sotto is still here and still good, at least the last time I went.
    You could take a cab to bring back memories.

      Alon's is opening an outpost across Ashford Dunwoody. Don't know where that is in process. You aren't too far of a trek from the E 48th St Market in Dunwoody. Rumi's, Canton Cooks, and 5 Seasons Brewing are all within striking distance over on Roswell Rd.

        I think Garrison's is one of the better choices at Perimeter Mall itself, and E. 48th Street is wonderful for sandwiches. On Roswell Rd., I like Cafe Sunflower for vegetarian.

          Chequer's is good for fresh seafood and those tasty cheese biscuits - mmmm- Dunwoody Co'm at Dunwoody Village for delicious grilled meats and seafood with rice, or noodles - excellent kobe carpaccio too - Others have mentioned other favs nearby - E 48th, Rumi's Kitchen, Cafe Sunflower...Haven't tried Seasons 52 yet - but hear it's quite tasty for spa cuisine - Then you have the sea of chains - Woodfire, PF Changs, Flemmings, Brio, CPK, McCormick's, etc, - all with their formulaic glory...LOL

            Seasons 52 just outside the mall is a great spot, but has become popular and you need reservations to get in. Fresh, light menu (each item less than 475 calories) and mini-desserts you can't say "no" to! There's another development just around the corner - Perimeter Pointe with everything from Fleming's Steak House to Shane's Rib Shack. Sotto Sotto is still rocking and Fritti (next door) just got designated as an "official Neapolitan pizzeria" there are only 18 in America with this certification. Enjoy being back - you'll barely recognize the place.
