Atlanta Restaurant Guide

Known for its southern charm, the Atlanta food scene is as diverse as its residents. Atlanta restaurants feature traditional American and southern cuisine, but those who venture out into the city's different neighborhoods will find a variety of ethnic fare as well. With over 300 eating venues in the downtown area alone, everyone from foodies to families are sure to find something that tastes great.

The downtown area of Atlanta is home to some of the finest restaurants in the state, such as BLT Steak in the W Hotel or South City Kitchen in the midtown area. Holeman & Finch offers eclectic dishes in a more casual environment. Those looking for traditional soul food should try the Busy Bee Cafe or Gladys Knight's Chicken and Waffles.

The Buckhead neighborhood is the place to see and be seen after the sun goes down, and it's a place where nightclubs, Irish pubs and restaurants coexist in peace. Steak aficionados usually head to Bone's Restaurant or New York Prime, and Chops Lobster Bar is the place for seafood lovers. Aria and Cafe Jonah & the Magical Attic are known for their tasty and unique desserts.

Ethnic cuisine is one of the highlights of all things culinary in Atlanta. One Flew South is known for its quality sushi, Peasant Bistro is the place to go for French and Mediterranean cuisine and La Grotta Ristorante Italiano is the go-to Italian restaurant. Those who can't make up their minds usually wind up eating at Babette's Cafe, where the menu includes French, Belgian, Central European, Italian and Mediterranean dishes, as well as a large assortment of tapas. One of the best overall ethnic Atlanta restaurants, however, is Fogo de Chao, an authentic Brazilian churrascaria. Dining at Fogo de Chao is as much of an experience as it is a meal, but those who walk through the doors should have a good appetite, as it's an all-you-can-eat restaurant.

With over 300 eating venues in the downtown area alone, everyone from foodies to families are sure to find something that tastes great.

Nightly live music and festive ornamentation neatly match the bursting colorations of Eclipses' tapas—small, sharable portions of Spanish flavors born to mix, match, and clumsily feed to one another across a romantically dimmed corner table. Gather with friends over a glowing votive-lit table and a potent plate of grilled lamb chops with sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese ($6.50); delve into the mystery of the paella negra with black squid ink, shrimp, squid, mussels, and artichokes ($20 for an ample portion that serves two or more); or toe the line between sweet and savory with mini empanadas stuffed with spinach, hazelnut, raisins, cheese, and garlic aioli ($4). Menus vary based on the location; click here for the Park Place menu and here for Miami Circle.

There is always a lively spirit of creativity at The Sound Table, but it changes throughout the night. The upstairs dining room boasts a menu that "zigzags through global influences: Belgian-style frites, Oaxacan hanger steak with salsa verde, Chinese grilled ribs redolent of soy and chile," says Atlanta magazine, which placed restaurant on its list of the area's 50 Best Restaurants. However, the menu's capricious nature doesn't stop at the recipes, it also affects the availability. The selection changes frequently as the chefs incorporate new, seasonal ingredients. On the downstairs level, the bar is a bit more consistent, although still inventive. In addition to the international assortment of wine and beer, the bartenders mix drinks that Creative Loafing Atlanta hailed as "some of the best cocktails in the city." These shaken and stirred concoctions are separated into categories that range from bright & dry to strong, rich & strange, and they occasionally feature nontraditional ingredients such as pine liqueur or garam masala. Although the food and drinks help keep spirits high, it's the live music that transforms the two stories of exposed brickwork, booths made of wooden slats, and soft industrial lighting into a lively neighborhood dwelling. Typically starting around 11 p.m., an ever-rotating lineup of DJs and bands performs throughout the week, energizing the crowds with anything from the raw, percussive fusion of African and Latin jazz-funk to globally-influenced psychedelic.

At first, Tin Drum Asia Café's rapid service and bright decor evoke the aromatic street stands of Hong Kong, where founder Steven Chan ate throughout his childhood. The traditional ambiance is no accident—the franchise's name also harks back to a bygone era, when a tin drummer would awaken citizens and regale them with current events as they ate the day’s first meal. The electronic kiosks dotting the café, however, plunk this traditional scene in the middle of a cyberpunk setting. They allow patrons to customize their orders based on taste preferences and nutritional content, accommodating dietary endeavors such as vegetarianism and weight-loss goals.

This merger of technology and urban convention reflects a penchant for edgy ideas that also affects the menu. Items inspired by the culinary techniques of Japan, China, Vietnam, and Thailand share space in the savory catalog, taking the form of street tacos, soups, and mango chicken, a take on the general tso's staple that's sweeter than a syrup-soaked army helmet. Music is the final ingredient that charges the atmosphere. Nation's Restaurant News reports that it typically plays at an energizing 120 beats per minute and was a factor in attracting the café's initial college crowds.

Sweet Tooth founder Chalandra "Missy" Strickland discovered her talent for baking and pastry decorating in 2004, just before her daughter's seventh birthday. With little money to spare, she baked a cake shaped like SpongeBob SquarePants, and the rest was history: her daughter's delight upon seeing it gave her the inspiration to continue perfecting her trade.

Sweet Tooth's selection of cupcake flavors runs the gamut from traditional red velvet to unconventional Bacon-licious, and several of each occupy a gleaming glass case at the café's entrance. During the day, sunlight illuminates the playful lime ceiling and cushy detached backboards of the café as patrons sip espresso drinks, trawl the Internet, and nibble on sandwiches or pastries. As night falls, the café slips on a more glamorous feel as Sweet Tooth's plated dessert menu becomes available. Adult taste buds delight in alcohol-infused cupcakes ¬and the more complex flavors of the Turtle Delight, a caramel-and-pecan brownie supporting a generous scoop of ice cream.

Sweet Tooth's baking sages also educate blossoming bakers on decorating and desserts. Dessert-tasting sessions delight with 8–10 bite-size confections, and decorating lessons help finesse frosting dexterity as students drape cake stand-ins in fondant and adorn cupcakes with tiny flowers or weekend to-do lists.

When Jake first opened his own ice-cream shop in the Old Fourth Ward, his freezer only contained 8 flavors. However, his creamy homemade concoctions—made from natural ingredients and packing an 18% butterfat punch—quickly became a cult favorite, leading to the creation of nearly 70 unique flavors derived from the minds of loyal fans and enlightened ice-cream men. Today, Jake vends his frozen treats all across Altanta and has earned praise and recognition from a slew of sources, including Atlanta Magazine and Newcomer, for both the ice cream itself and the shop's fun atmosphere.

Whether it's Brown Shugah Vanilla or Coffee & Donuts, each of Jake’s creatively named treats emerges from fresh ingredients, including organic sugar and hormone-free dairy. For his vegan, lactose-intolerant, or cow-fearing patrons, Jake churns out decadent sorbets in flavors such as lemon, coffee, and mango, and fills cones with Joyscream concoctions made from almond or coconut milk. When not cooling off taste buds, Jake’s helps out the community by hosting fundraisers for a list of organizations, such as the American Red Cross and Special Olympics of Georgia.

The EVOS story begins on an ordinary day in the early 90's, when Dino Lambridis, Alkis Crassas, and Michael Jeffers suddenly felt a rumble in their bellies. The three friends piled into their sputtering 1988 Oldsmobile and drove for hours, searching for a fast food joint that could satisfy their craving for burgers that were both delicious and healthy. It was during this futile quest that they hatched the concept of EVOS —a quick-service eatery that serves healthy takes on American comfort foods. Two decades later, they’ve expanded EVOS into locations across Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina and has earned accolades from national publications such as USA Today.

Within each kitchen, chefs sizzle up grass-fed beef burgers and fold locally sourced produce into salads and wraps. The cooks eschew deep fryers, opting instead to slow roast their fries using grease-free technique called "airbaking". The restaurant staff is also deeply committed to eco-friendly practices, providing customers with recyclable and biodegradable serving materials and greeting each neighborhood tree by name.
