+1 (770) 512-8888
www.mckendricks.com
A high-end steakhouse that no longer gets the attention of the Buckhead biggies, but one that surely belongs in august company. Not only are the charred pieces of USDA prime beast excellent, but the kitchen also follows through with commendable seafood, salads and a thorough, smart roster of side dishes. Service is as unpretentious, friendly and informed as in any town. You can go safely in many directions on the menu, but you won't go wrong with New York strip or a fat porterhouse.

Serving hearty food with rural roots & an urban polish, Food 101 caters to those seeking a dining experience reminiscent of days gone by.

Comparable to a traditional, 1920's New York speak-easy, this Sandy Springs eatery exudes comfort not only through its food, but also through its relaxed atmosphere.

Goldfish

Restaurants around town

Buckhead isn't the only place to find world class cuisine and a vintage bottle of wine… Here are a few more spots worth visiting.


Murphy's

997 Virginia Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30306
+1 (404) 872-0904
www.murphysvh.com
What could be better? Take Atlanta's trendiest neighborhood destination of Virginia Highland; it's most popular restaurant now sporting a gorgeous, gleaming renovation; add a hot new chef from Manhattan's Gramercy Tavern and Eleven Madison Park; and a sophisticated martini and wine bar -- and you've got Murphy's. There is not another experience like it in town and the crowds gather like jumbo jets waiting on the runway.

Vickery's

1106 Crescent Avenue Atlanta, GA 30309
+1 (404) 881-1106
www.vickerysbarandgrill.com
Vickery's Crescent Avenue Bar and Grill in Atlanta was opened to the public on August 25th, 1983 by three guys (Sam/ Chip and Jerry) and a dog (Dave) as a place to get a good drink and a cheeseburger. (They also serve some of the best shrimp and grits in the city). Speculation has it that a great deal of "Gone With The Wind" was written in that house.

Loca Luna

836 Juniper Street NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
+1 (404) 875-4494
www.loca-luna.com
Make like a Brazilian and party the night away at this festive Midtown hideaway.  Loca Luna works the tropical theme, and works it hard. Intense splashes of primary color meet the eye at every turn. The expansive interior courtyard adds to the sense of escape from Midtown and makes a great spot for that large group get-together. The place borders on "get on the banana boat" silliness, but it's blessed with an infectiously festive atmosphere and killer grooves courtesy of the house samba band. When the place is packed and the rum is flowing, you might think, just for a minute, that you're in Ipanema.

Neuvo Laredo

1495 Chattahoochee Avenue NW, Atlanta, GA 30318-2834
+1 (404) 352-9009
www.nuevolaredocantina.com
Tex-Mex standards get a makeover at this wildly popular West Atlanta cantina.
This worth-a-trip cantina is tucked away in the never-never land beyond the mattress outlets of Chattahoochee Ave.
In rejuvenated form, this is the food you'd find in any of the million "Mexican" restaurants crowding the roadside from here to old El Paso. From top to bottom, though, ingredients here are fresher, flavors are bolder, and the use of chilies a bit sharper.

Bacchanalia

1198 Howell Mill Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30318
+1 (404) 365-0410
www.starprovisions.com/
This urban destination restaurant--the centerpiece of a sleekly rehabilitated factory complex--announces itself by a long entryway that houses a hip upscale grocery.
Impeccable cooking techniques applied to organic or small-farm produce and carefully selected meats and seafood. Offerings on the prix-fixe menu are pegged to the seasons and change often, but you'll find anything from butter-poached Hawaiian snapper to Pennsylvania snails to hand-poured artisan cheeses to desserts made from apples picked earlier that afternoon.
