Dining in Atlanta

While at the Gift Show in Atlanta, we stayed in the Buckhead district. We dined at a few wonderful restaurants for dinner and thought we would share our finds with you.

AJA is a new Asian Kitchen at 3500 Lenox Road in the Alliance Center. It recently opened -- in November 2008 -- in the spot previously occupied by Emeril's. Great modern Asian cuisine, including table-side dim sum and sushi. If you like it spicy, their hot and sour soup is great and they have some spicy hot fish in chili pepper sauce!

ARIA is an innovative restaurant that combines the freshness of nouvelle cuisine and the comfort of slow cooking. Located at 490 E Paces Ferry Rd NE, the dining room is like a large parlor in an old southern house.

ANIS Cafe & Bistro is country French at its finest. Unpretentious and a bit funky, Anis serves up delicious food and service. The specialties are Proven├žal versions of healthy Mediterranean cuisine. The old, country house at 2974 Grandview Ave NE has a shaded patio for outdoor summer dining -- it was a bit cold to try it the last couple of years for us, as we were there in January.

It's just a coincidence that the above all start with the letter "A". There were two others we also enjoyed: Pricci - upscale Italian - and Bluepointe - another Pan-Asian restaurant of note.

Bob Appetit!
