Talented Chefs Shine at the Top 5 Atlanta Restaurants

October 15, 2009 Le Cordon Bleu Atlanta 0 Comments

Atlanta, Georgia has always been known for its delicious southern cooking. But, in recent years this exciting metropolitan city has become recognized for its modern gourmet restaurants, in addition to the classic Atlanta cuisine. If you are planning on spending time in Atlanta, be sure and pay a visit to some of these top-notch eateries that have been made famous by their excellent menus and world-class chefs.


This elegant restaurant is owned and run by husband and wife team Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison. In addition to running the business, these two are also the head chefs for Bacchanalia. Rated by Zagat’s Guide as the number one restaurant in the city for 7 years in a row, this is a must-visit for food aficionados of any level. Much of the menu is organic and comes from Quatrano and Harrison’s farm, and the four course meal is a steal at $75 per person.


Located on the scenic banks of the Chattahoochee River, but still close to the city, the beautiful setting of Canoe only helps to add to the superb menu created by its head chef. The restaurant has had a number of excellent reviews in The New York Times, Bon Appetit, The Wine Spectator and more. Executive Chef Carve Grant Gould has created many outstanding dishes, and the fresh fish is some of the best to be found in Atlanta.


Here you can find some of the finest Atlanta cooking, and all in a place that has the comfortable feel of a neighborhood restaurant. Lead Chef Joe Truex had his culinary training in New Orleans, and has brought much of this southern flair to create an incredible mix of American and Asian cuisines. If you plan on treating yourself to dinner at RePast be sure and try either the steamed black mussels or the Japanese Octopus Carpaccio.

4th & Swift

This award winning restaurant can be found in The Old Fourth Ward, which was originally created in the 1870s. The restaurant itself retains a rustic charm combined with a welcoming and warm atmosphere. Exposed brick and concrete are augmented by wood and rich fabric, creating the perfect ambiance for your meal. The menu follows a home-cooked approach, with classic favorites like Duck Pot Pie and other dishes all made with the freshest ingredients.

Bone’s Restaurant
