Looking for a restaurant near the Fox Theater

We are going to the Fox Theater on Saturday and I am looking for restaurant reccomendations within walking distance. Thanks.

      Baraonda is a great place. good pizzas and wine

        Sorry to disagree, but had a bad meal @ Baradona two weeks ago- I sent back the tasteless Caesar salad (NO anchovy)after two bites & they still charged me for it. Wifes pizza DRYED OUT.

        1. re: jlooman

          FYI - a true, traditional, "authentic" Caesar salad does not contain anchovies, only Worcestershire sauce. Of course the Worcestershire sauce contains anchovies which is how the practice got started.

          1. re: Fuller

            Sorry, no anchovy "taste". The server, nonetheless, claimed the dressing did contain anchovies.

    2. I'd pick Baraonda too if you're really looking for walking distance only. I find Repast or 4th & Swift just down the road far superior though. They are literally 3 minutes away if you're driving and parking is free albeit you'll probably want to tip the valet a couple bucks.

        Well, if you have a car and want to drive, of course Repast is a great choice.
        However, I wouldn't walk from the Fox to Repast (unless you like hills).

        1. re: rcburli

          Absolutely right. I wasn't clear enough - I meant only consider those if you're driving. They are only 3 (ish) minutes away if you're driving.

          Hills? What hills? ;-) Only kidding.

          1. re: Fuller

            By the way, does anyone know if Enoteca Carbonari has closed?
            I really liked that place and wanted to go by there this week.
            There is no link anymore on the Baraonda website.

            1. re: rcburli

              Livingstons was good when we went a few months ago. The chef there is Gary Mennie, who was chef at Canoe years ago. Enjoyed my meal there.

      2. I wasn't really too impressed with Livingston's when I went, but it was also the week they opened, so maybe they're due some slack. Certainly convenient to the Fox.

        Another in walking distance on Peachtree is Dogwood.

          Go back! They've worked out the kinks. They've also, of course, started curing their own meats if I remember correctly.
