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.

    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.

      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.

          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.

            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.
