Even for Buckhead, everything about Zakia is excessive. It reminds us of an old MTV Cribs episode–sure, we’d never decorate our house that way, but for Zakia, everything feels appropriately grand. There are four dramatic chandeliers and giant pillars lining the dining area that have us Googling the breadth of ancient Rome imperialism (yes to Tyre, but et tu, Buckhead?). Zakia’s classy interior mirrors Buckhead's many bougie spots, but their food stands out from the pack, thanks to excellent takes on Lebanese staples like fried kibbeh, impossibly fresh baba ganoush with pomegranate seeds, and crispy batata harra.
