Let me start by stating I did review previous threads (liked the 4 girls/4nites and 30th Bday ones in particular) prior to starting this one. Staying in City Market area for 5 nites in early May...our thoughts:
Wed- Macintosh/Cocktail Club for dinner
Th-lunch at Green Door, dinner at The Ordinary
F-business lunch, dinner at Two Buroughs Larder or Rutledge cab
Sat-business lunch, cocktails at Gin joint, dinner at ______
Sun-brunch at __________, dinner at Husk (our only repeat)
Obviously will need cab ride to Rutledge, but was planning on foot travel to the upper King venues-any reason not to?

    You should try Trattoria Lucca--Ken Vedrinkski is an amazing chef and he is a zealot for finding the best ingredients. You won't go wrong--don't even look at the menu, just tell them you want food and wine.

      Do not miss the brunch at Halls. it is very good.
      Friday night or Sat morning stop by Glazed Donuts. Christophe's and Brown's Court Bakery has excellent coffee and pastries.
      Skip Rutledge. Two Boroughs is great. .

        dinner at -FIG or McCrady's.

        Sunday Brunch-High Cotton

        You should be able to walk to the Upper King spots if you are reasonably healthy. It's a nice walk.

          What other places did you see in the previous threads that looked interesting? What kind of places are looking for for your missing meals? Price? Cuisine? Location?

            Ordinary and Macintosh looked really interesting. As much as we've enjoyed FIG, McCrady's,SNOB, Cypress, and several others in the past were trying to avoid repeats and steer towards what is new since our last visit in summer '11. Envying the natives of what (for us) is the best foodie city in America.

              You might want to consider Cru Cafe for your Saturday dinner and Hominy Grill for Sunday brunch. Both are more "low key" than FIG, SNOB, etc.

                Those are good recs. And Sam, I don't blame you. So many places.

                So I change my rec to

                dinner at Ordinary (make a reservation)
                and Sunday brunch still at High Cotton, unless you want to leave town. Then I'd recommend the sister restaurant Old Post House in Mt P., or maybe the Mac.
