Please help me decide

I have four nights in the Atlanta area. I already have reservations at Woodfire Grill and JCT Kitchen. Now comes the hard part -- planning for the other two nights. One is a Friday the other a Sunday.

I am deciding between:
1. Table 1280
2. Canoe (would be the closest to where we are staying at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel at the Cobb Galleria -- we won't have a car and will be cabbing it.)
3. Holeman and Finch -- perhaps for sunday night. I know they don't take reservations and I thought the wait might be shorter on a Sunday night for 2 people.
4. Ecco for their special menu

What do you think? Thanks for your assistance.

  1. Can't recommend woodfire, we went and while nothing was wrong there was nothing worth returning for. JCT i really enjoy and am already planning a return visit. Ecco is on our list of places to visit and we enjoy their sister restaurant la tivola so that could be a good swap for woodfire.

    1. Canoe is Great. All of your selections are fine dining and all great options. Do you like Asian food?

        I love Asian food, but I have great Asian food in my home area. Also, the person I am traveling with is not a super adventurous eater. Give me suggestions though and I will check them out.

      2. You don't mention a budget or preferred type o food/dining experience, but no visit to Atlanta would be complete without at least considering Bacchanalia and Aria. Your other choices are fine, but not what I would call the best food in Atlanta.

          I can't afford Bacchanalia -- I really really wish I could. I didn't see menu prices on the menu at Aria's website. That always worries me.

          My budget is around $55.

            If you can't afford Bacchanalia, take a look at Floataway Cafe, it's their sister restaurant and really good.
            Canoe is very good, I would go there.

              Understood. Floataway is a good suggestion. If you like Italian, take a look at Sotto Sotto. Very good Italian in that price range.

          2. For something different, maybe Antico Pizza Napoletanta on Hemphill. Seating can be dicey and I believe it is still BYOB, but the raves just keep coming and coming. Rumi's Kitchen might be fun for some Persian fare.
