A fine-dining staple for 20-plus years, Buckhead’s Aria isn’t bothered by industry trends or incessant construction on nearby streets. The dining room with nary a napkin out of place merely goes about its business every night with the same astute service and daily-changing menu of proteins and pastas. Though the place has loosened its starched collar, when you’re enjoying expertly-prepared filet mignon with a pinot, tailored trousers just feel right. The same goes for bourbon salmon paired with an herbaceous vegetable medley. By the time you complete the spongy lemon pound cake, you will have spent nearly three hours and $300, but you’ll already be wondering which milestone you can celebrate next.
