Best Foodie Restaurant in Atlanta?

JaimeJ Sep 17, 2011 11:02 AM

I'm looking for a foodie place to go tonight in ATL with my husband. Location in greater ATL preferred. We have a soft spot for "small plates" or tapas. We're adventurous eaters! Any help or thoughts greatly appreciated. Looking to spend <$100, if possible.

    Bacchanalia is perhaps the best restaurant in the city and definitely for foodies.

    For tapas style small plates, I would recommend Pura Vida. Pretty nice take on tapas but with some nice twists. Another spot is The Iberian Pig. More traditionally Spanish with a very heavy pork influence. One of my favorite spots in Decatur.

    For a good tasting menu, Woodfire Grill is excellent and the executive chef is Kevin Gillespie of Top Chef fame.

    If I think of more, I will post them but this is a good starting point.

    Pura Vida
    656 N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30306

    Woodfire Grill
    1782 Cheshire Bridge Road, Atlanta, GA 30324

    The Iberian Pig
    121 Sycamore Street, Decatur, GA 30030

      If the original post was asking for $100 for 2, that rules of Bacchanalia and Woodfile, unfortnately.

      I would highly, highly suggest Holeman & Finch. Checks every box off that you described above. PArt of their menu is called PARTS!!!

        Holeman & Finch was recommended to me the last time I was in Atlanta and was really glad to hit it at a time when it wasn't packed. Very creative with lots of small plates. Try the steak tartare - one of the highlights of the night.

        Try Abattoir, its very good, lots of interesting things on the menu. Owned by the same chef that owns Bacchanalia. Concept is tail to snout
