Simultaneously a lounge, restaurant, and tavern, Ink & Elm is a culinary enterprise that celebrates the deep history of Atlanta's Druid Hills neighborhood and the cultural legacy of its original designer: Frederick Law Olmsted. Drawing inspiration from Southern traditions and food culture, and showcasing the contemporaneous dimension and eclecticism of Executive Chef Stephen Sharp, Ink & Elm's food program revolves around local, organic, sustainable and responsible procurement. The menu cycles are seasonal and offer a modern take on Southern, American cuisine. The restaurant offers two unique dining options: the convivial Tavern, which is perfect for a casual bite and drink and features a menu ranging from snacks to more substantial entrees; and the dining room, with a more structured menu, and ideal for a relaxed, refined meal.<br /><br />Ink & Elm is pleased to offer reservations in the Main Dining Room through OpenTable. Reservations are not available for the Tavern or the Lounge.

"we've been there several times and this one was really disappointing. one entree was inedible (meat was too tough to be cut or chewed) and the other was ok, but not that fresh flavorful sense we expect. Everything we ate seemed overly fussy in preparation. Prices are high. I don't think we'll go back."

Since being named a "Best New Restaurant in America" by Esquire in 2006, Ecco has quickly become one of Atlanta's, and the Southeast's, most recognized and renowned restaurants. The seasonal European menu tempts with delicious meat and cheese boards featuring a myriad of different selections, housemade pastas, authentic wood-fired pizzas and mouthwatering desserts. The restaurant also features an adventurous, nationally-recognized wine list representing both boutique and well-known European vinyards with many selections exclusive to Ecco. <br /><br />Featuring award-winning design including an over-sized bar, a large, open-air patio and a breathtakingly beautiful main dining room, Ecco is completely unique, yet comfortable. Whether with a large party, enjoying a romantic dinner or simply having a bite at the bar, Ecco is sure to become one of your favorite Midtown neighborhood dining spots. <br /><br />

"Best Italian" - The Sunday Paper's 2007 Reader's Choice Awards. "Top 50 Restaurant" & "3-Stars" - Atlanta Journal-Constitution Exposed brick, dark wood floors & rustic colors give La Tavola its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. The food is simple yet creative, elegant & certainly delicious - the kind of food you could eat every day or turn into a celebration.

Inspired by classic coastal traditions both American and global, Lure presents Atlanta"s freshest fish and the drinks to match in a converted 1920's bungalow. Anchored in the heart of Midtown on Crescent Avenue, Lure has a sophisticated but casual vibe, fluidly bridging the gap between a weathered seaside fish house and a fine-dining seafood restaurant. Join us dressed up or down for a four-course meal or a beer and platter of raw, chilled and really fresh oysters. It's Atlanta's fish house for the adventurer, the traditionalist, the hedonist, the fish-obsessed.

"we continue to love the food and the ambiance of the patio (other than the roar of motor cycles driving by). Our server, although well informed and efficient, as always, was quite on the serious side. i don't think he smiled once. plus he failed to deliver on the birthday dessert I requested, although the host remembered and was great in wishing my husband happpy birthday."

Celebrating 30 years of service, Murphy’s is one of Atlanta’s best-loved restaurants. Located in the trendy Virginia Highlands, it is the long-standing hub of neighborhood camaraderie and the choice destination for visitors seeking the epicenter of the district’s shopping and nightlife. Tom Murphy’s acclaimed restaurant brings in the crowds with the perfect combination of upscale comfort food, unpretentious service, a cozy, high-energy setting and excellent value. The interior combines rustic, exposed-brick and French café doors with modern design elements for a light, airy effect by day and a warm, sparkling atmosphere by night. A new renovation adds a sophisticated martini and wine bar and a sleek retail wine shop that showcases an extensive and user-friendly wine collection and hosts weekly wine tasting and seminars.

"Murphy's just gets better and better. The only even slight negative was that our server was a bit on the serious side, although still very professional."
