Top Restaurants that know their ingredients

meinNYC Jun 7, 2010 10:10 AM

Coming to Atlanta for a sports competition. Son has a severe tree nut and sesame allergy.
Need 5 dinners in the downtown, inman and midtown area where the kitchen knows their stuff.
No ethnic like Thai, Chinese or Vietnmanese (too many allergens).

Been to Rathbuns in the past and were underwhelmed.
Price is not an issue (we 're from NYC, and know high prices)

Is One still good? How about Sotto Sotto?

Name your favorite Italian.

Thanks all

    Sotto Sotto is a good choice. Antica Posta is another top Italian spot, although it's in Buckhead.
    Repast (although some Japanese influences)
    4th and Swift
    I've heard good things about Max's downtown for pizza, wood-fired stuff, beer

    Cakes and Ale and Woodfire are great suggestions although not in your neighborhood designation.

    Antica Posta
    519 East Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta, GA 30305

    Sotto Sotto
    313 N. Highland Ave., Atlanta, GA 30307

      Bacchanalia on Howell Mill has accomodated my special diet requests before. They KNOW their ingredients. I would also say other farm-to-table spots like Cakes & Ale in Decatur and Woodfire Grill would be good bets.

      For Italian, the new fun place is La Pietra Cucina. I don't think Atlanta has many great Italian spots but this has gotten great reviews. We liked it.

      Cakes & Ale Restaurant
      254 W Ponce De Leon Ave, Decatur, GA 30030

      La Pietra Cucina

      Woodfire Grill
