Bistro Niko in Buckhead is one of our favorite French spots, and it’s a great option for when you want to sit on a patio, drink some good wine, and tell the waiter about how you studied abroad in Paris. Start with some oysters and then get the coq au vin or duck confit cassoulet. And if you’re someone who likes to end meals with something sweet, make sure to get the apple tart, too.
