Great Atlanta Restaurants in 10 minutes

taste-of-Atlanta

Recently a young man who is currently a sophomore at Georgia Tech emailed me and asked me to name some of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. I only had 10 minutes right then to reply back, and below is exactly what I came up with…unedited! $’s indicate how pricey it is.  Given more time, the list may look a bit different, but again this is what came to mind in 10 minutes:

Eats  $ has been a long time Yellow Jacket favorite for great home cooked soul food
Antico Pizza $$ We’ve talked about this one…great pizza, try to sit in kitchen
Bacchanalia $$$ some of the best food in Atlanta, pre-fixe menu in dining room, I suggest sitting at the bar where you can order a la carte $$ and save lots of money but still get a taste for it, don’t miss the chocolate soufflé
Six Feet Under $ One on the west side has a great view on the rooftop deck and yummy tacos
Douceur de France $ – best breakfast, little bit of a drive
Silver Skillet $ – I’m sure you’ve been, 2nd best breakfast in Atlanta, 1st best traditional breakfast, worth the wait if there is one
Heirloom Market $ – never tried it but hear their Spicy Korean Pork Sandwich is great
Watershed Restaurant $$ – this is a really good restaurant, their menu has changed since they got the new location
Grand China  $1/2 – absolute best Chinese in all of Atlanta, high quality wonderful flavors, suggest the family combos
Cafe Intermezzo $$ – lots of locations, European coffee house best for dessert and coffee, traditional place to take your date

Question: What would be on your short list of great Atlanta restaurants?
