Please advise of the best farm to table restaurants in the Atlanta area. Price is not a consideration just quality and taste. I prefer casual to "fine dining" pretentious but will go anywhere if the food warrants

      Thanks, Of these three, bacchanalia, & the restaurants at serenbe- which are not to be missed

      1. re: mwise

        If you're into fine dining, I'd pick Bacchanalia. That said, our zombie-infested city doesn't compare apparently to the fair-to-middling offerings in NYC or LA. So, consider yourself forewarned if you are jaded by eating at Daniel too much.

        Next on my list would probably be Miller Union. Good stuff, but in kind of a west-side warehouse area where there's other stuff relatively close, but it gets zero for neighborhood-y feel.

        Another option rcburli didn't include is Cakes and Ale in Decatur. Tiny place, great town-within-the-city in Decatur. Lots of other stuff nearby to grab a pre-dinner drink or just walk around.

        And finally, I just keep enjoying Holeman and Finch across the board.

        Serenbe is nice but it's a haul distance-wise out of town. Woodfire is over-rated/priced. Farm Burger (I've heard) is good, but it's a high-end burger place, so not sit-down, eat-your-burger-with-a-knife-and-fork kind of experience.

        Out of dashes now.

          Thanks for your informative post. I'll be new to your area come January and look forward to trying some of these places. I'm digging on farm to table these days. Also, I couldn't tell if your reference to Walking Dead was positive or negative but it made me smile.

            It was a reference to this thread:

            Where another poster thought Bacchanalia wasn't anything to write home to NY or LA about.
