Rooftop views, salsa lessons, and enough leftovers to feed the in-laws—whatever your idea of romance, you don’t have to look far to find it in Atlanta. But “romance” is perhaps too general of a term. Every relationship plays out in chapters, from the nervous first date to the big question. But before getting down on one knee and asking “What’s your name?”, take a look at this list of Atlanta restaurants for every stage of your relationship:
JCT. Kitchen & Bar
Great for: Meeting for the first time
Romantic perk: Rooftop bar
Located in the hip West Midtown neighborhood, JCT. Kitchen & Bar is equal parts classy and casual, with all-white decor that serves as the perfect setting for an elegant evening. The menu of upscale Southern cuisine provides plenty of topics for conversation, from homestyle deviled eggs to JCT.’s famous fried chicken. After the meal, head upstairs to the rooftop bar for a handcrafted cocktail. If things go well, you can even stay late to catch live music in the bar area.
One Midtown Kitchen
Great for: Taking things to the next level
Romantic perk: Skyline views
No backdrop is more romantic than the Atlanta skyline at night. One Midtown Kitchen is located in the warehouse district that borders Piedmont Park, and the restaurant offers diners a glimpse of the city from their table. If you can peel your eyes away from the view, you’ll see that the interior is just as romantic, thanks to the cozy booths, exposed brick walls, and modern floating candle arrangements throughout the restaurant. Working in a circular open kitchen, the chefs here use seasonal ingredients to craft American classics such as fried calamari, crispy brussels sprouts, and pork tenderloin.
Great for: Dinner and a sleepover
Romantic perk: The hotel’s just upstairs
Located in the Renaissance Hotel in the heart of Midtown, Briza is the perfect setting for a date night. Chef Janine Falvo, who competed on TV’s Top Chef, has created an excellent menu headlined by a short rib that slow-cooks for 48 hours. Vegetarians will fall hard for the roasted maitake mushrooms served over grits with a wild mushroom-thyme jus. Before heading upstairs for the night, impress your date by ordering a flight of wines selected to pair perfectly with whichever dish you decide on.
Great for: Couples who share everything
Romantic perk: Enough leftovers for breakfast the next morning
If you’re willing to wait in line, this might be your perfect date-night spot. Antico Pizza is known worldwide for its handcrafted Italian pizzas. Everything here is made from scratch, and the pizzas are large enough to serve a family of four (or one very hungry couple). Even better, it has a BYOB policy, so you can choose your own wine from the cupboard at home. To really make things hot, order the Diavola, a pie topped with pepperonata and a spicy sopressata.
Eclipse di Luna
Great for: Spicing up the relationship
Romantic perk: Salsa lessons on Thursday nights
Dance the night away on Thursdays at Eclipse di Luna, a Spanish tapas restaurant that offers free salsa lessons once a week. Either of the two locations (one in Buckhead, the other in Dunwoody) are perfect for a date night, as the eclectic food and interactive lessons invite stimulating conversation throughout the evening. The housemade sangria doesn’t hurt, of course.

One of the most unique aspects of Atlanta is the big city/small town feel. We’re one of the largest and most metropolitan cities of the south, yet all throughout the city are close-knit neighborhoods and charming pockets of small town southern charm. One of those areas is Decatur, Georgia.
At just six miles east of downtown Atlanta, Decatur is quite close to the city center, yet undeniably possesses that lovely local appeal. While there is an endless list of noteworthy restaurants, shops and establishments, here are a few eateries that have a little extra something special.
1. Leon’s Full Service
If you tell someone you’re going to Decatur, they will immediately tell you that you must go to Leon’s. It has literally happened to me every single time I go. But with good reason. Leon’s Full Service has delicious food, a comfortable and clean atmosphere and top-notch cocktails to match. Whether you want to sit down for a quick lunch, or have more of a drawn out, in-the-moment experience in mind, Leon’s is the place for you.
2. No. 246
Right next door to Leon’s is No. 246. This tasty eatery is the epitome of modern charm. Its attractive, upscale design indoors is met with a simple, relaxed outdoor patio dining area in the back of the restaurant. The best part (besides the food, of course)? There’s a ping-pong table for guests to enjoy as they wait for their food, creating an entertaining, yet relaxed atmosphere. Check out No. 246 for brunch—you won’t regret it.
3. The Café at Cakes & Ale Bakery
Chances are you’ve heard of Cakes & Ale if you live in Atlanta. The restaurant is well known to most residents, but the owners also opened a bakery where they serve coffee, baked goods and light bites from breakfast to lunch hours. The pretty set up is enough to make you walk in, but guests stay for the perfectly customized coffee and fresh treats. Do yourself a favor and try the banana bread at The Café at Cakes & Ale.
4. Revolution Doughnuts
A doughnut craze has swept the nation, and I can’t say I’m upset about it. This doughnut (and cronut) obsession has brought tons of new businesses to fruition, including Revolution Doughnuts. What makes this place special is that all of their treats are made from scratch, in house, with organic and local ingredients. A farm to table concept doughnut has been created and it is available right here in Atlanta. What are you waiting for? Join the craze!

Living in Atlanta, with year-round farmer’s markets and restaurants around the metro area highlighting the bountiful resources in the area, there’s no excuse not to eat healthy. Whether you’re fulfilling a New Year’s resolution or just making an effort to eat healthier, check out these restaurants to get a delicious meal that you can feel great about.
Chicken is a great way to get some extra protein in a healthy diet, and the city’s Bantam + Biddy restaurants in Midtown and Ansley Park go the extra mile by serving all-natural, pastured poultry products in their meals. Diners have a choice of house made sauces to pair with their rotisserie chicken, in addition to a constantly rotating selection of sides to complete the experience. The spicy red piri piri sauce is a personal favorite. Don’t miss the chopped pastured chicken liver and their selection of salads. Yes, even their salad dressings are made in-house. An Alpharetta location of Bantam + Biddy will join the pair of intown locations in the fall.
Atlantans may have become aware of chef Todd Ginsberg when his burgers hit the scene at Westside restaurant Bocado, but it’s the Jewish inspired fare at The General Muir near Emory that’s attracting rave reviews from national publications. Save the sinful poutine with chopped pastrami for a cheat day and dive into the vegetarian reuben, a sandwich made with coriander rubbed smoked beets, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and gruyere. Hungry eaters in search of the all-important Omega 3 properties of salmon can’t go wrong with a salmon platter at breakfast, choose from salt cured nova or lox. Dinner options change often and if a seafood special is on the menu, be prepared for a treat.
A brewpub isn’t typically on the list of go-to restaurants for healthy eats, but Wrecking Bar in Little 5 Points is anything but typical. Chef Terry Koval, known for restaurant gigs around town, most recently made a name for himself with meat-centric fare at Farm Burger in Decatur. Koval has embraced vegan and vegetarian fare that pair well with the brewery’s beers. A variety of flavorful dishes featuring tofu, seitan and produce direct from area farms are spotlighted every Tuesday at the brewpub’s vegetarian nights.
When it comes to eating late at night, healthy options dwindle considerably. Atlantans have come to appreciate the healthy cuisine available at R. Thomas Deluxe Grill in Buckhead for decades and count on them for having the same hours as the ubiquitous Waffle Houses, open 24 hours a day. Breakfast is served at any time of the day and night with organic eggs. My personal favorite is Thai Express bowl made from quinoa and a variety of vegetables with their signature spicy peanut sauce and chicken. A vegetarian option is available as well. Southwestern dishes, salads, pasta and dessert round out an wide-ranging menu.
