Taking out TOP clients in ATL

I need a restaurant that's not too pretentious in atmosphere, but has top notch food and a wine list to match... looking for, per person, between $200 - $400 - Thanks in advance for the advice!

    Bacchanalia. Though you'll have a hard time spending enough there unless you go to the high end of the wine list. I think it's $75 per person prix fixe.

      Thanks - the place looks amazing! I forgot to mention that a place that's within walking distance of the convention center would be great as well -

        do you mean the world congress center or the international convention center?
        for another meal in addition to bacchanalia?

          In either case, you're not withing walking distance of anything highly recommendable. Bacchanalia and their sister restaurant Quinones would be my top choices. Ritz Carlton is a bit more formal in a traditional sense. Bones is just a solid high end steak house if that's what you want.

        The Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton will be a fine choice.

          biskuit's right...nothing of that caliber near the GWCC. Actually, Bacchanalia and Quinones are probably the closest. And they're two of the very best in town. Bacchanalia is more subdued, almost perfect. Quinones will be 7 courses and a bit over the top but in the best possible way.
