I love seafood, and considering the amount of high profile seafood destinations that opened in the last year, chances are you do as well. Yes, I know there really isn't an Atlanta Ocean, but we're close aren't we? I've chosen a few picks for your pleasure
The farm to table concept is so passé at this point that Ecco kicks it up a notch with their own rooftop garden for fresh apps & cocktails.
Leave the forks & knives of fine dining behind & dig into your food w/ fresh injera bread at Desta. The fish tibs alone are worth the trek.
Get the burger & one of mixologist David Durnell's excellent cocktails
The freshest and most sustainable seafood around with frequent lobster & oyster specials that are kind to your wallet.
James Beard winner Hugh Acheson's Atlanta outpost is a Midtown favorite & its menu changes daily. I'm a fan of the superfood plate at lunch and you never know what will be on the dinner menu. The wine & cocktail program are killer & don't forget to leave room for dessert
Fun, modern seafood restaurant just steps away from Peachtree Street. Inspired by Buford Highway & Vietnam, the octopus and pork lettuce wraps are a must try
Few Buford Highway restaurants attract the attention of the New York Times, but the Crawfish Shack isn't your average place. An Asian Cajun mash up with po-boys to die for on Amoroso bread. Accept no substitutions
There's a new chef in town! Check out Chef Todd Richard's housemade lamb sausage & hot smoked salmon & grits
I have a lot of favorites here and they all involve deep fried fish. In contrast to other fish houses, especially in the burbs, they have a great craft beer list.
Try the local beers from Hampton, GA brewery - Jailhouse
