The Buckhead glitz factor is down at this Old World Italian eatery serving Tuscan specialties such as crostini with duck ragu and superior pastas. Service and comforts are first-rate, making this a special-occasion destination as well as a place to enjoy the kind of Italian food served in Italy, not New York.
Being landlocked, Atlanta’s options for fresh fish are limited. The Fish Market has a reputation for quality and its retail outlet located in the back of the restaurant. Everything they sell is flown in daily, already cleaned, deboned, and ready to go. You can watch the fish prep cooks breaking down the fish in the large mirror at the market. There aren’t many whole fish, but you can call ahead and have something aside before it’s broken down for sale or the restaurant.
Watering hole with full menu in Brookwood neighborhood of Buckhead. Located across from Piedmont Hospital.
Buckhead Life's lunchtime cafe and bakery, serving soups, salads and sandwiches.
Former Zesto restaurant is still part of the chain, but now it serves burritos, tacos and quesadillas for a bargain. But you can still get a big ol' cone of soft-serve vanilla ice cream.
Despite its association with the McDonald's fast food chain, Chipotle actually offers an excellent product. The menu couldn't be simpler, containing options for meat-lovers and vegetarians alike. Carnitas (shredded pork from eco-friendly Niman Ranch farms) and fresh, piquant guacamole are standouts.
Located on a public golf course in northwest Atlanta, Cross Creek Cafe offers casual dining fare at lunch and dinner with views overlooking the lake and 18th hole.

Optional deck seating, weather permitting, as well as banquet rooms for private meetings and parties.
A vegetarian Chinese restaurant serving beef, chicken, pork and shrimp dishes all made from flour, potatoes and other meat replacements, along with typical vegetable dishes.
Count on La Fonda for inexpensive fare inspired by a melting pot of Latin influences. The pork chops, Cuban Reuben sandwich and big, generous quesadillas also satisfy.
What could be better than inexpensive, freshly made food delivered quickly, served in normal portions that aren't drowning in sauce? Regulars -- and one gets the feeling that nearly everyone here is -- get giddy over the specialty of the house, garlic knots. There's nothing cutting edge about the pastas and entrees, but that isn't what Pasta Vino is about. Cash only.
A Buckhead port-of-call worth the modestly priced ticket, this younger sister to popular Toulouse is notable for seafood, unusually astute wine-advice and a soft-focus attitude that belies the care lavished on favored customers. The Mediterranean and American cooking has its ups (steamed mussels with lemon grass, steak with mac-and-Asiago) and downs (entree pastas, veal). Reservations honored.
