INSIDER INFO Hot tips to help you find the best places to go and things to do, save money or just help you get the information you need to maximize your stay here.

CONCIERGE CORNER When visitors come to the city, it’s a good bet to find out what to see and do from our knowledgeable concierge friends. Katherine Scofield, Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, gives us her tips. During the holiday season, I tell our visitors to... Experience: For the holidays, I tell our visitors to not miss Garden Lights, Holiday Nights at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Take a chance to explore the Garden with the natural highlights such as the Fuqua Orchid Center and Storza Woods, and the returning exhibit, “Nature’s Wonders” with the majestic lights choreographed to music and sound effects as you experience one of Atlantans’ favorite way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Dine at: Go to one of our delicious southern cuisine restaurants for one of the South’s signature dishes, fried chicken!

i

Whether you are tasting the chicken and waffles at the casual midtown spot Joy Cafe for brunch, the fried chicken on the buzzworthy Sunday Supper “fancy meat and three” menu at JCT Kitchen, or my favorite, the Springer Mountain Farms fried chicken with collard greens and red bliss mashed potatoes at South City Kitchen, which is sure to make a believer out of the biggest southern food skeptic, you will realize that southern food is alive and well in Atlanta, and you will definitely enjoy what Atlanta has to offer.

ATLANTA WELCOMES...

Shop: For your holiday shopping, there is no better place than Ponce City Market, with something for everyone! Stop into stores from national brands such as MAC or Anthropologie for the newest trends and accessories, then find unique and fun gifts from the Rhen’s Nest Toy Shop, the perfect style for the gentlemen at Rye 51, or your new favorite dress from lily rain. After working up an appetite from all the shopping, grab a delectable cup of edible cookie dough from Batter Cookie Dough Counter, where my favorite flavor is their signature Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and then head on up to Skyline Park on the roof of Ponce City Market to have a drink and soak up the best view of Midtown in Atlanta.

THE BEST DATE NIGHT RESTAURANTS IN ATLANTA Love is always in the air in Atlanta and especially during the holiday season. Atlanta’s romantic restaurants come to the rescue with candlelight, atmosphere and cuisine. ANIS CAFE & BISTRO The South of France defines romance, and Anis Cafe & Bistro in Buckhead delivers it. Owner Arnaud Michel charms guests with recipes from his youth in Montpelier, France, and the converted house transports guests back to Provence with such delicacies as escargots au pastis, boeuf au poivre and poulet rôti while they dine in the warm yellows of the sun-drenched atmosphere of the South of France.

Henry Winkler once said that Buckhead’s Antica Posta may be one of the best Italian restaurants on the East Coast, and we agree. Not only will the Tuscan-inspired dishes melt in your mouth, but the quaint, intimate atmosphere will put romance in your heart. The Betti brothers understand that dining should be a relaxing, enjoyable experience, and they and their wait staff let you linger over your dinner and drinks while the romance simmers.

ATMOSPHERE Atmosphere is a quaint bistro located near Ansley Park that features meticulously prepared dishes, desserts and cocktails — and romance. The soft lighting offers up an atmosphere of relaxed elegance, which lends itself to intimate conversations, laughter and a special evening.

ANTICA POSTA

Canoe

CANOE Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River, Canoe offers a romantic setting with natural, yet manicured, lawns and a tranquil waterfront. Inside, diners settle into overstuffed booths or tables and enjoy an inspired decor that features an exposed kitchen and a ceiling that resembles the inside of a canoe. Located in Vinings, Canoe is one of the area’s most acclaimed restaurants, and diners can feast on such delicious treats as she-crab soup, Australian octopus, oven-roasted duck breast and hand-rolled fettuccine.

DAVIO’S NORTHERN ITALIAN STEAKHOUSE Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse may be located in the decidedly unromantic Phipps Plaza, but once you walk through the doors, you’ll be transported back to a world of romance served up by waiters who take pride in their service — and respect privacy. The food is exquisite.

IMPERIAL FEZ

ATLANTA.NET

Imperial Fez is an exotic and fun Buckhead restaurant that offers private tented rooms, belly dancers, and Moroccan and Middle Eastern specialties. A special treat is having your hands washed in rosewater before the

meal — a Moroccan tradition — as is dining on comfortable pillows and eating some of the food by hand. To ensure a long and romantic evening, order the five-course dinner that takes a minimum of two hours — perfect for getting to know your date.

KYMA Kyma is a contemporary seafood tavern that is true to its Mediterranean (especially Greek) origins. Romance is always in the air as the white marble columns, white-washed walls and dazzling constellation display on the deep blue ceiling take you away to the Greek islands. Kyma is part of the esteemed Buckhead Life Group, so you know the food and service will be outstanding, and it is. Kyma offers a variety of fish and seafood and specializes in the Greek technique of wood grilling with olive oil, lemon and oregano.

LE BILBOQUET Le Bilboquet is located at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta and offers a vibrant atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Parisian cafe. With lots of natural light, blue velvet banquettes, a two-color terrazzo floor and pewter bar, the restaurant offers classics such as les crêpes Suzette, crab and avocado salad, and steamed mussels.


DINING NIKOLAI’S ROOF Since 1976, Nikolai’s Roof at the Hilton Atlanta has been the go-to place for romance. Nikolai’s delights guests with stunning views of the skyline, masterfully prepared Russian and French cuisine, impeccable service and oneof-a-kind vodka flights and options.

POLARIS Who doesn’t find a rotating lounge romantic? Hyatt Regency Atlanta’s Polaris certainly fits the bill. With the city skyline in the background, the Polaris offers specialty cocktails, chef’s plates, a modern, yet retro, decor and romance.

SOTTO SOTTO Sotto Sotto is located in the Old Fourth Ward and has been a dining tradition for the past 15 years. Chef-owner Riccardo Ullio serves simple, regional food in an intimate dining room and on an outdoor patio. It’s so romantic that you’ll definitely re-enact the “Lady and the Tramp” classic pasta scene.

ST. CECILIA St. Cecilia is well named because a dining experience in this Buckhead restaurant is, indeed, heavenly. Renowned chef-owner Ford Fry serves coastal European food in a dramatic three-story room with multi-colored woods,

Polaris atop the Hyatt Regency offers 360 degree views of the Atlanta skyline

white-tiled columns and a 20-seat marble bar that is perfect for a pre-dinner tête-à-tête. St. Cecilia is the complete package: Outstanding food, beautiful decor and the aromatic smells from the kitchen make it a favorite for lovers.
