Celebrate your grad with a good meal.
You could go to any restaurant for your graduate’s recent accomplishment, but the following four restaurants offer an array of lunch, dinner and brunch options plus outdoor seating, making each great for groups.
Scales 925: For city views and southern, soul food, make a rooftop reservation for this restaurant, owned by Clifford “T.I.” Harris. Items such as salmon croquettes, signature wings and a bevy of beverages are offered on the outdoor menu. The regular dining menu is also available.
30 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. N.W., Atlanta. 404-584-0359. www.scales925.com.
Einstein’s: This is a place to party. During warm weather evenings and weekends, this Midtown restaurant is a hot spot, but to avoid the hubbub—unless you like that sort of thing—reserve a private room. For your fete, a custom menu can be created or you can opt for buffet style servings.
1077 Juniper St. N.E., Atlanta. 404-876-7925. www.einsteinsatlanta.com.
Canoe: The most romantic restaurant in Georgia is also great for groups. Settle into a big booth or dine outside with a warm breeze from the Chattahoochee River then dive into dishes such as smoked salmon eggs Benedict and brioche French toast during brunch. Reservations strongly suggested.
4199 Paces Ferry Road S.E., Atlanta. 770-432-2663. www.canoeatl.com.
Venkman’s: Get out. With a new outdoor patio, live music and large tables, this restaurant is ideal for grads and groups who just want to have fun—and eat.
740 Ralph McGill Blvd. N.E., Atlanta. 470-225-6162. www.venkmans.com.
