in order for the most part...
if you went to restaurants based on atmosphere alone, this would be a winner 8 months of the year! when it is warm enough in atlanta to sit outside, park tavern is the place to go! take a walk with your besties [now including wilson] and everyone can enjoy their outside patio, including the pups! the best thing here is their hummus which is massive and comes with a salad accompanied with a great vinaigrette dressing. making me wish it wasn't a rainy cold day in atlanta! oh and wednesday nights they boast their 1/2 off bottles of wine!
#4...Coast Seafood & Raw Bar 111 West Paces Ferry Rd phone
part of here to serve restaurant group, coast is not only in the average person's dinner out budget, but also amazing! the blackened tuna is great as are their garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach! lots of patio seating but also has some nice inside seating too!
if there is no budget then canoe is for you. if it were more reasonably priced this would be my favorite restaurnt in the world! though i haven't been since it flooded, this is my favorite place! my 2 favorite entrees are the rabbit [yes i know but you will love the ravilli that comes with it] and the salmon although everyone else always seems to love whatever they get there as well! open table a reservation for sure! it gets booked fast! avoid friday nights when there is a home football game at lovett unless you're into hearing the fans cheering as its right on the other side of the river!
