Recommendations sought for professional dinner for 8 in NW Atlanta
I'm traveling to town next week for a few days of meetings with colleagues in Atlanta, and we're going out to dinner on Wednesday night. Our office is at the intersection of I-75 and I-285 in NW Atlanta, and I'm wondering if there are any good non-chain options for a professional dinner with 8-10 people of varying tastes.
The current plan is to eat at Maggiano's but I am sure we can do better than that. We ate there last time, there's one here, and there's probably one everywhere else.
Last time I was in Atlanta, the only memorable thing I ate was a meal at Popeye's, because I love it and we don't have them here. Please save me.
I wanted to come back and follow up. We wound up going to South City Kitchen in Vinings, and it was a complete success. All of the options mentioned looked good but I chose South CIty Kitchen because of the variety and because it didn't seem more expensive than Maggiano's. Since I wasn't paying, I didn't want to suggest moving the dinner into a higher price bracket.
The food at South City Kitchen was very good, and gave out o towners a pretty good idea of what modern Southern cooking is all about. I'm a sucker for fried chicken, and the South City Kitchen fried chicken was perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I really enjoyed it. The bread pudding dessert is outstanding.
Thanks for the recommendations, it worked out very well.
