Southern Hospitality
Atlanta Dining Recommendations

By David Tulis, AJC Staff Photographer

Fuzzy's on North Druid Hills Road, excellent pub style atmosphere and great Cajun food from longtime Atlanta chef Joe Dale.($)

For a Buckhead treat without the parking problem, try Rock Bottom Brewery at the Piedmont Road and Peachtree Road intersection. Great hand crafted beers and excellent pub grub. ($$)

Virginia Highlands features a wide variety of restaurants and some of Atlanta's oldest bars. Moe's and Joe's is the place for a quick hamburger and pitcher of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer and where else can you visit with Horace, a waiter there for 50 years. ($)

Manuel's Tavern has been a favorite journalist's watering hole since way back when. Where else could a 16-year-old get a frosty mug of beer and a basket of peanuts for $2? Not saying that I did so myself if-you-know-what-I-mean. Check 'em out.($)

Ready to Thai one on? Great Thai food at Virginia Highland's Pad Thai Restaurant, the coconut chicken soup and basil rolls especially recommended ($). If too crowded go up Highland Ave to Pad Thai ($$) or head toward Morningside and Doc Chey's where everything is $6. (1/2$)

If you're on expense account, walk across Virginia Ave. to Highland Tap for a huge steak or a monster sized $6 martini ($$$)

And if you're not, then Taco Mac is your best bet, especially for Three Mile Island Wings- Atlanta's first restaurant to serve buffalo wings, also has an extensive beer list.(1/2$)

Good, but small, cigar store at Virginia and Highland has Lars Teton's for $10. Italian food? Camille's up the street has some of the best pasta in Atlanta. Extremely reasonable prices and good house Chianti. ($$)

Their sister restaurant San Gennaro, near Showcase Photo on Cheshire Bridge Road, isn't too far away by car if Camille's is too crowded. Sundown Cafe on Cheshire Bridge Road across from San Gennaro makes about a dozen fresh homemade sauces that go great with their Southwestern type food and signature blue corn chips. Margaritas highly recommended. ($$)

These are my picks for local hangouts. Cheers - DT :>
