"Perfection! Excellent food, excellent service, excellent ambiance! Amazing food expertly conceived and presented. Everything classical French food should be and with care and attention to modernism. Bouley is always a MUST whenever we are in NY!"

With the rapidly growing popularity of Kpop around the world, the most successful entertainment mogul in Asia, JY Park has taken Korean barbecue/lounge upscale and hip, anticipating to make it the place where entertainment meets exquisite dining. <br /><br />At the heart of the concept is a custom-grill made of a crystal placed on the belly of the ancient-tale character with infrared heat that will produce higher temperatures than charcoal or gas grills. Downdraft machines are promised to eliminate smoke so you don't go home smelling like grilled meat; chef Kay promises finest ingredients ranging from rib eye and pork belly to scallops to market vegetables. A separate lounge menu serves small plates. <br /><br />The bi-level venue has private rooms specially intended for any type or size of private events.

"Our second dinner at Kristalbelli and once again everything was excellent -- excellent service, excellent food. The care and attention provided by the staff was top-notch. The tuna appetizer was perfectly offset by the smoked bacon. The Wagyu beef barbeque melts I your mouth and the vegetable and sides were all delicious (best kimchee we've ever had). The last time we followed the beef with Bibimbap (delicious) and this time with the Bulgogi Dupbap, which might have even been more delicious. Desserts (I'm not a dessert person) were also amazing. And, what a great wine list!"

The 56-seat neighborhood spot is a modern interpretation of a public house, offering casual food, well-crafted cocktails and an extensive selection of intriguing and affordable wines. In the spirit of every great pub, guests are welcomed to drop in for anything from a drink and a quick bite on the way home after work, to joining with friends or family in sharing a meal.<br /><br />Chef Wylie Dufresne, along with Chef de Cuisine Ryan Henderson, apply innovative techniques in the kitchen at Alder, taking familiar dishes and flavor combinations and presenting them in their own unique style, celebrating New York City’s diverse food culture in the process. Dufresne and Henderson find their inspiration in their metropolitan surroundings: New York is a city where we can source the best ingredients from around the world and turn them into something distinctly American.

"Great brunch menu, original and delicious. Incredibly small, expensive (for the size) portions. The Chinese sausage pigs in a blanket were excellent (but only 4 very small half-inch wedges. Ditto for the French onion soup rings (only 4 rings in an order for $10). The coconut waffles with jerk chicken was also excellent. I was disappointed with the pastrami has as the spices were too "holiday season-ish rather than savory. All in all it was a great dining experience."

Socarrat Nolita's ambience denotes feelings of warmth, comfort and hospitality. Building on its sister restaurant's identity as a small, intimate space comprised primarily of one large communal table, the restaurant also offers banquette, bar and table seating.<br /><br><br><br />Socarrat, the quintessence of the perfect paella and for which the restaurant is named, is the delectable, sensuous crust that forms on the bottom of the paella pan when the liquid is rendered and the rice reaches its peak of succulence. The menu, an authentic array of delicious dishes from the regions of Spain specializing in traditional tapas with an accent on paella and fideua (which substitutes fried noodles for rice) that can be characterized as a true exploration for the palette.<br /><br><br><br />Socarrat Nolita also offers several tapas, wines by the glass, Spanish desserts, and sangria.

"Always excellent paella (the black squid ink is our favorite) -- and of course, the socarrat makes the dish. Tapas are also always excellent -- we loved the green tomato. The only disappointment was the Sangria. We ordered a full carafe and it had only 4 small glasses (we were 5). It was served in a small pitcher filled to capacity with ice cubes and obviously very little wine! We've dined here several times and never experienced this before (could they have run out of pre-made Sangria for the night?)."

Osteria Morini - New York is a authentic rustic Italian restaurant by acclaimed and award winning Chef Michael White and the Altamarea Group. In Italian, “osteria” means a place where the owner “hosts” guests, and at Osteria Morini - New York Chef White continues this tradition of hospitality, transforming his first downtown restaurant into an authentic, old-world osteria with soulful food from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.

"We shared 3 crostini -- all of which were excellent -- and 3 from the meat/cheese selection -- all of those excellent as well. In particular, the parmagiano "gelato" was fabulous as was the Squacquerone cheese (complemented by wonderful bread. These six dishes were rich, filling and delicious, leaving room only to share a pasta dish -- also amazingly delicious. Can't wait to go back to taste some more amazing dishes. We've had Lambrusco several times before and hadn't particularly liked them, but since this is a specialty of Osteria Morini we tried again and order the special of the day thanks to the suggestion of our waiter -- it was great!"

"Our second time dining at Viceroy and it was every bit as wonderful as we had remembered. We dined with another couple and they also felt the food was excellent. It is great to have an Indian restaurant that actually make is own pickles. All of the dishes, breads, rice, sides, etc., we had were truly excellent, including one we've never eaten before. We also had the butter chicken again, and again it was amazing - the best we've ever eaten, including in India. If you love Indian food you will love Viceroy."

We know the word "fusion" has been wielded about to justify everything from Hula Burgers to Mexican lasagna. But the East-meets-South brand of fusion happening at Poor Calvin's? It's creative; it's innovative; and it's probably unlike anything you've tasted in the ATL. After working in kitchens around the world, Calvin Phan wanted to shake things up a little. And so, into the mac 'n cheese, the Thai spices went. Now, Calvin's giving Southern staples, like sea bass and fried chicken, a decidedly creative Asian-inspired twist (and a nip of spice, too). We didn't think good old-fashioned mac 'n cheese could get much better. And then, we tried Calvin's ridiculously rich take on the cheesy classic, gussied up with chunks of lobster and given a zing with Thai spices. This, and more innovative dishes, approached in much the same way, leave the hands of Calvin Phan day in and day out. His dedication and attention to detail are evident in each dish and dessert. You won't be disappointed.

"Second time and loved it again. It is so nice having such a wonderful brunch selection. Everything we've eaten at Poor Calvin's has been wonderful. Great choices, great preparations, and presentations. The lobster fried rice is fabulous, served with a great lobster tail and all fresh vegetables. The walnut shrimp was equally as wonderful - great flavors. Great appetizers and Bloody Mary's as well. We will be back!"

"What a find. We haven't had Indian (northern) food as good as this since India. Very helpful and courteous staff, eager to make food suggestions. The butter chicken was perhaps the best we've had. The Seekh Kabab was also wonderful (combination lamb and chicken). The Mulligatawny soup was a little disappointing, water and not very spicy. The pickles were very good, in-house made; I love Indian pickles but they are almost always from a jar, these were home-made. The waiter asks what spice level you want; we picked Indian Spicy despite his warning -- it was spicy but wonderful, not too very hot, great blend of spices. Finally a good Indian restaurant in Atlanta. Can't wait to go back."

"Everything about Flyte was fantastic - great food, too many fabulous choices, fresh, fresh, fresh ingredients (I even ordered dessert, I generally don't like desserts, these were more savory than sweet). Great wine list, well organized, easy to follow. Amazing service, I usually don't care to know my server's name but in this case my wife and I were very impressed with Todd and so, remember his name. He was extremely knowledgeable, knew every aspect of the menu, right down to spices, flavors, tastes, etc., which was most helpful. He knew the wine list and, even though I know wines, his knowledge and recommendation was right-on. Rarely have my wife and I been so impressed with a restaurant. Despite not living in Nashville, we will be back."

Located in the century old Hermitage Hotel, the commitment to preservation continues in the Capitol Grille and Oak Bar. Relaxed, low key, and known as the place for Nashvillians “in the know”, the Capitol Grille is inspired by cultural sustainability. That is, preserving the past while using techniques of the present. Our commitment to using local food extends beyond just sourcing local. The ingredients are grown at the farm at Glen Leven, located just 5 miles from the Capitol Grille by Executive Chef and Farmer Tyler Brown. Brown creates a menu that shifts with the seasons, is inspired by what is the freshest and best available, and pays homage to historic Southern cuisine. The Capitol Grille actively supports and is involved with Share Our Strength, an organization whose mission is to end childhood hunger by 2015, the Chef’s Move to Schools program, as well as the Southern Foodways Alliance. <br />

"The food was delicious, well prepared and well presented - trout was fresh and excellent, I had sable fish that was also delicious, Caesar salad also very good (great anchovies). The cheese platter was wonderful, three cheeses, breads/crackers, and accompaniments, however one of the cheeses was too ammoniated for me - they reduced the cost of the plate accordingly. Service on the other had was not very good. Our waiter, obviously new was reading the specials from a note pad, he forgot about our wine (a white, kept on ice, but not at our table so we couldn't pour, not that we should have to) and we had to remind him to refill our glasses; after opening the wine he put the cork on my bread-butter plate. We will definitely eat here again."
