Nava in ATL and other buckhead life options

rcburli Jan 28, 2009 06:19 AM

I have a Buckhead Life girt certificate and haven't been too impressed in recent years (aside from Kyma).
I have not been to Nava in probably 5 or 6 years. Any thoughts?
I've never been to Pano and Pauls and it's been probably 4-5 years since I went to Veni Vidi Vici.

Not going to Bluepointe, Chops, Fish Market, Buckhead Diner, Pricci or Kyma (went recently).


p.s. I wish my gift giver (wife's employer) would switch to Fifth Group or Concentrics. Oh well.

    Hmm - I would choose Pano's & Paul's over Nava just for tradition's sake, but you're right, there's kind of a bland-ness that has settled over the restaurant group. It feels kinda late 80's early 90's ish to me.

      For what it's worth, we're going to Buckhead DIner. Go figure.
      Actually looking forward to trying it out again.

        That's not a bad option. I actually would have chosen that myself but you did say that wasn't an option. ;-) Have fun... hey it's free dinner after all.

          Ditto. My FIL took us there on New Year's Day, and it was fine except for the service must've been hungover- kinda disappeared toward the end.

        Sad news..... Pano's & Paul's is closing its doors at the original location on February 14. Apparently, it will be revamped and open at some point in the St. Regis Hotel.

          Yeah I saw that. Too bad, but nothing lasts forever.

          I bet rcburli wishes they went there now.

          We enjoy Chops and the Chops Lobster Bar. Don't like the attitude of BH Diner, but the food's OK.
