French 75 in Midtown Atlanta?

Hi, I'm trying to find a restaurant in midtown Atlanta that makes a good French 75. I've tried a few places, but so far haven't had any luck. Does anyone out there have any experience with this drink? Any leads would be appreciated!

      Great drink. I am of the gin, cognac, lemon juice, sugar and champagne school but have had them made without gin as well. I would try Restaurant Eugene and Woodfire Grill as well. The Rainbow Room in New York makes an outstanding $20 version.

      One Christmas I was given a bottle of Cognac and a balance board (separately.) My wife and I made French 75s. I foolishly combined the two gifts with predictable results. I healed eventually.

    2. Have never had it, but think the bartenders at Trois are supposed to be among the best and could probably pull it off??
