1. Atlas

Atlas brings an innovative approach to traditional American style cuisine, gathering ingredients from over a dozen local farms for its tasting menu. Upgrade to the legendary wine pairing for a night to remember. 88 W. Paces Ferry Road NW, 404.600.6471

2. O-ku

This ultrachic hot spot in the Ironworks development features traditional Asian cuisine with an authentic Southern twist. Enjoy the omakase at the chef’s counter before heading to the rooftop bar overlooking the skyline. 1085 Howell Mill Road, Ste. A3, 404.500.2383

3. Lazy Betty

Chefs Ron Hsu and Aaron Phillips have turned fine dining on its head with the relaxed, casual atmosphere of their restaurant Lazy Betty, in stark contrast to the stellar food normally reserved for white tablecloths and soft music. 1530 DeKalb Ave. NE, 404.975.3692

4. The Alden

You’ll want to reserve ahead for a place at the 11-seat chef’s counter to see the chef and owner (and Atlantan!) Jared A. Hucks in action demonstrating his New American style. It’s available with the requisite wine pairings. 5070 Peachtree Blvd., 678.395.6982

5. Kyma

Go to Kyma for Pano I. Karatassos’ modern Aegean dishes and those he creates using several of his family’s traditional recipes. There are three tasting menu options at this Buckhead stalwart, plus a large Greek wine list to peruse. 3085 Piedmont Road, 404.262.0702

6. Bacchanalia

Consistently rated as one of the city’s best, Bacchanalia features contemporary American cuisine by chef/owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison. Each evening features a four-course prix fixe menu, which changes daily. 1460 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd., 404.365.0410
