When you’re in Atlanta for work, or even if you just came to see the aquarium, it’s good to have somewhere to go for a nice client dinner or a date. For us, that’s Bacchanalia. This West Midtown restaurant really takes “farm-to-table” to the extreme, as you can watch the produce from your salad grow and get picked from the garden outside as you eat. As a result, the menu changes seasonally, but they always have a four-course, prix fixe menu available for $95. If you go a la carte instead, make sure to order the crab fritter with citrus and avocado to start. It’s the best dish on the menu, and might even surpass the whale sharks you saw earlier as the highlight of your day.
