Visiting Atlanta (Buckhead) GA and looking for local favorites

I am visiting Atlanta for the first time, from NY, and want to know what foods are local favorites as well as good restaurant recs. Thanks!

  1. If you search "buckhead Atlanta," you'll get lots of info. Atlanta isn't as blessed as NYC but it nonetheless has tons and tons of great places. You might want to narrow it down a bit, even narrower than Buckhead. Have a great trip.

    1. My favorites are Restaurant Eugene, La Grotta, Antica Posta and Bones.
      I hope you have a great visit!

      1. If you're going to Buckhead, I would recommend any of 11 restaurants of the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. They are all located within the Buckhead area (except for Veni Vidi Vici - Italian) which is in Midtown. Each restaurant is absolutely delicious and they have a wide range of choices - Chops Lobster Bar, Nava (Southwestern), Bluepointe (Asian-American), Pricci (Italian), Buckhead Diner, Atlanta FIsh Market, Kyma (Mediterranean), and Pano's and Paul's (An Atlanta Landmark in Fine Dining). My personal favorites are Chops Lobster Bar, Pano's and Paul's, and Bluepointe, but I would go with whatever you are in the mood for! You definitely will not be let down, as they are the best places to dine in the city!!

        1. Horseradish Grill near Chastain Park is one of my favorites.
