If you’re beach-starved and want somewhere that will make the city feel a little less landlocked, Watchman’s in Krog Street Market is the place. The entrees on their seafood-heavy menu can get pricey, so stick with the small plates like grouper tartare and a shrimp roll, and definitely get the hush puppies. Bring a group to test out their impressive oyster selection, and make sure to get a spritz or daiquiri, too.

Sotto Sotto is an Inman Park Italian spot that hasn’t changed since it opened almost 20 years ago, which is exactly why we like it.
With loud disco music, lots of wine and cocktails, and solid Italian food, Il Localino is definitely where you should go for your next birthday,
JavaVino Coffee & Wine House
Javavino in Inman Park is a small, quiet spot that serves coffee during the day and wine at night - so it's great for a day of work or a third date.

There’s always a wait at Ria’s Bluebird in Grant Park, but they have something for everyone and make the best pancakes in the city.
Mary Mac’s Tea Room
There are a lot of restaurants serving Southern food in Atlanta, but no place is more classic than Mary Mac’s Tea Room in Midtown.
When you want a low-key spot for drinks, surprisingly good bar food, and games, head to Midway Pub in East Atlanta Village.

Going to Gunshow is kind of like having dinner at your coolest coworker’s house: It’s loud, fun, and you never quite know what they’re going to serve.
Anis Cafe & Bistro
Anis is one of our favorite places in Buckhead to get wine drunk outdoors, especially while surrounded by plants and eating a croque monsieur.
Tuk Tuk Thai Food Loft
We like Tuk Tuk in Peachtree Hills for their Thai food, patio, and great views, but don’t leave without trying a few of their desserts.
