1123 Zonolite Rd., Morningside-Lenox Park
Another of Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison’s long-standing restaurants (they opened this shortly after Bacchanalia, in 1998), the Floataway occupies an airy, industrial warehouse space. The menu is roughly European, with a focus on fresh ingredients, including a hearty vegetable section and a few great pizzas. We like to come in the summer, when you can eat in the outdoor courtyard space.
1879 Cheshire Bridge Rd., Morningside-Lenox Park
The Colonnade is a total Atlanta fixture at this point—it made national news when the restaurant started taking credit cards for the first time in its nearly 100-year history back in 2014. An old building off a busy-ish thoroughfare, the décor’s nothing to write home about, but this is hands-down the place to come for great, old-school fried chicken.
