Located in downtown, this Vietnamese restaurant is close to the World of Coca Cola and other top attractions. We got pho here and it is pretty good. I wanted their bun Bo hue but they ran out. For some reason a lot of the restaurants on their street close at 6pm. We didn't know that so the first time we ...Popular withFoodiesVegetarian

The Churchill Grounds is the preeminent jazz club in Atlanta. Every jazz musician who is going through Atlanta must come here to perform as a prerequisite stop. The club itself is intimate and small. The performance room is even called The Whisper Room, to allow jazz musicians to perform without much talk and discussion. If I want to listen to ...Popular withNightlife

Casual sophisticated ambiance is perfect for dropping in after work, stopping by before a local sporting event or dinner before the theater. Glenn's Kitchen offers the best dining opportunities downtown Atlanta has to offer. Breakfast is delicious also, and service very friendly.

Located in the Hyatt Regency in downtown Atlanta, Sway is a great place for dinner in a casual, yet somewhat upscale environment. I arrived a few minutes early for my reservation and chatted with the European executive chef, while waiting for the restaurant to open. He is very interested in serving fresh, local food. The restaurant staff is young, friendly, ...

This post isn't to review Pizzeria Vesuvius, but to review the speakeasy bar located towards the back of the restaurant. The bookshelf is essentially a door and masks the bar. Once you open it, you'll see a small, intimate bar serving cocktail drinks and beer. The music is a little loud but solid. The crowd is a diverse intersection of ...Popular withNightlife

Papi's has some of the best Cuban sandwiches that I've ever had. Try the Pan con Croquette sandwich, which is ham and cheese croquettes with mayo. It is so heavy and will hit your stomach like a cinder block, but it's soooo good!Popular withFoodies

Upscale Latin/Mexican restaurant. Latin "soul food" with a twist. Try the cachaca-braised short rib and pork cheek arepas, braised lamb tacos, or goat huaraches. Very hip spot. Great place to grab a drink.Popular withLuxury

Opened in February 2011, Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint is a welcome addition to the Atlanta food scene. Based in downtown, Sweet Georgia's offers fried chicken with honey tasting fried skin with tender juicy meat. It's the most popular item on the menu, and it's easy to see why. Plus, they have a live band play in the evenings.Popular withFoodiesNightlife

Incredibly high quality ingredients and great preparation mean this is a fabulous place to come get a sandwich for lunch! Why can't I find a deli like this in DC? It was exactly what I want my deli sandwiches to be like, and the pasta salad was yummy too.

Chris Rock famously said Krispy Kreme should be called Crack n' Kreme because their doughnuts were sooo addicting. I definitely agree. I'm personally not a big doughnut person, but the taste of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, especially when they come fresh out of the oven are so soft and warm and fluffy. They a variety of different doughnuts, but their original ...Popular withFoodies

Dogwood is definitely a new American fine dining restaurant concept with Southern influences. I wouldn't classify Dogwood as only "Southern" since most of the dishes have their own unique touch added.The grits are nice and creamy but each have their own topping. The trio of tastings is good if you want to try all three but I think the one ...
