Sunday Night Solo

  • 9

I'm going to be in ATL for the week for work, and will have time to myself Sun PM. I was going to check out the Arboretum then need to head north to Roswell at some point. Any recommendations for a good solo dining option in between? I checked out Iberian Pig and Holeman & Finch, those tend to be the kind of places I like, not ruling them out but I wouldn't mind something with more of a Southern spin (the Pig looks a little out of the way but if it's amazing I'll try it). I would prefer to eat at the bar. TIA for any other recommendations.

  1. I should say too, I'd ditch the Arboretum if anyone has a good food-related sightseeing suggestion, too!

      When you say Arboretum, I'm guessing you mean the Botanical Gardens.
      Lots of options in that area, although Sunday night is more limited than usual.
      Holeman Finch is closed on Sunday night.
      Ecco has a great bar scene as does Two Urban Licks.
      4th and Swift is also good at the bar (although not exactly in between Botanical Garden and Roswell).
      When you mention "a good food-related sightseeing suggestion" what do you mean exactly? Give me an example.

    2. You can try the Flying Biscuit for some decent eats. There are a few of them.

      1. you might give Swallo at the Hollow a shot thyre in Roswel--good country cooking,and home made pies to die for--als Pastis is very good country French--its on Roswell square

        1. 5 Seasons Brewing is a good on-the-way-to-Roswell option; it's right at 285 and Roswell Rd with easy hwy access. The whole place feels like a bar/brew pub so I wouldn't have any issue dining there alone, and there's a great patio if the weather is nice.

          1. Based on your opinion on Iberian Pig and H&F, there are several places in downtown Roswel to look at. Table and Main, Roswell Tap, The Salt Factory, Inc Street Food to name a few. The downtown area is quite revitalized over the last several years. It's a nice area to walk around in. Get yourself an incredible slice of pie at The Pie Hole. If you are there near breakfast time, you can hit Artisan Foods & Bakery. For lunch, there is the Fickle Pickle.

            Would love to hear back from wherever you decide to dine at.
            Suggested below is Swallow at the Hollow and Pasti's. Swallow is a very short walk from downtown and a very good option. Gets crowded and it is "rustic", but good food. Pastis is downtown Roswell as well, but I've heard very mixed to bad reviews of the place. I would also avoid Ceviche.

              Thank you for all the suggestions. I think I'm going to try Ecco, based on it's proximity to the Botanical Garden, and well it's actually open on Sunday. :) I checked out downtown Roswell on my last trip in Sept, I loved Inc Street Food and will certainly be back in that area to check out some of those other spots - I'm interested in Swallow at the Hallow but it was closed for 2 of my 3 nights there the last time.

                I recently dined solo at the bar at Ecco on a Sunday night and loved it.

            2. I also recommend Empire State South. Big bar action, great food and good value. I'm not a big fan of Flying Biscuits, yet they do have a loyal following. An alternative is Corner Cafe in Buckhead, for breakfast/brunch.
