Top 5 Local Restaurants – #3

Let me just say, I get easily distracted.  It just dawned on me that it’s been at least 5 days since I posted my last favorite local restaurant.  I’m sorry.  I kinda suck sometimes.

To make it up to you, I might, just might be having a giveaway sometime soon. {hint hint}

(See, I can be nice.)

So today, I have to share with you my #3 most favorite Atlanta restaurant.  This time we’re not talking about diners or burger joints. Nope, not today kids. Today it’s all about Bacchanalia.

According to Zagat, Bacchanalia is considered the Top Food in Atlanta as well as the Most Popular restaurant. 

But don’t just take their word for it.  You can take mine too. (…or my huband’s word, or my in-laws’…)

Bacchanalia is hands down one of the most amazing dining experiences you’ll ever have in Atlanta.  As the restaurant offers a four course prix fixe menu comprised of an appetizer, a main entree, a cheese course, and a dessert, the restaurant always stands apart from the crowd.  The food is consistently delicious and the service is impeccable.  And it’s one of those places where you only get the rare opportunity to visit when it’s on someone else’s dime.

And if I were so lucky, this is exactly what I would select for my dining experience:

Appetizer:  Blue Crab Fritter, Citrus Thai Pepper Essence

Main: Local Berkshire Pork Loin, White Grits, Andouille Sausage, Pot Likker Jus

Cheese: Pecorino Romano, Fava Beans, Artichokes, Young Fennel, Marcona Almonds

Dessert: Lime Parfait, Gingersnap Crumble, Toasted Meringue

Now if you don’t mind, I need to conjure up an excuse for my husband to take me there.
