It’s time to eat, ladies! Here are some of our favorite restaurants in and around the perimeter for a girl’s night out!
For grown and sexy vibes and outstanding food, try out this hidden gem in Buckhead. It’s Caribbean food, but remixed by Chef Day with unique items like oxtail hummus and snapper ceviche. The cocktails are also fantastic and the vibes are immaculate.
Breakfast at Barney’s is THE new hot spot in town. And what’s fantastic about this place is not only the atmosphere and ambiance and top notch, but the food equally matches it. You’ll love the luxurious velvet touches and glamorous gold accents throughout the space and the artwork and murals as much as the perfectly fluffy 24k gold pancakes and savory soul rolls. They’re always poppin’ for brunch, but wait times are a little shorter in the evenings (they’re open until 8pm now) if you want to try breakfast for dinner!
Midtown is not always a go-to neighborhood when it comes to great food in Atlanta, but Bulla is helping change that game. You’ll love the vibes in here as well as their bustling patio, perfect for enjoying with your girlfriends. Dig into their bulla huevos for an amazing combo of flavors–homemade truffle potato chips with a fried egg and prosciutto–and feast on their paella. Their brunch is another excellent and overlooked spot in the city.
We’re obsessed with newly reopened Chido & Padres’ newly revamped menu. There’s been a dearth of great Mexican food and Tex Mex in ATL, but they’re filling the void with a mix of Mexican street eats, Tex Mex favorites, and other tasty dishes from Mexico’s heartland. Their Buckhead patio is one of the best in town, and we love the mussel toast, the fundido, and the seasonally changing ceviche with aguachile that makes a basic dish just so much more unique and special.
For OTP Atlantans, don’t forget about the Halcyon in Alpharetta/Cumming for your next girl’s night out destination. The interiors are breezy and elegant, evoking the atmosphere of a classy marina restaurant with fresh seafood for you to dig into. The patio is also just divine in the summertime!
Chef DeeDee Niyomkul has been serving up authentic Thai realness for over a decade now at TukTuk in South Buckhead. The loft-style interiors of this spot are just elegant, and the food and cocktails are superb and totally should be on anyone’s “best of ” list in ATL when it comes to Thai food. Dig into their meat skewers, their fried red snapper, and mieng kum for some tasty favorites.
It’s the vibe for me. The interiors and patio are stunning at this Old Fourth Ward spot. Guy Wong from popular spots Le Fat and the now-closed Miso Izakaya has opened up Ruby Chow’s right near Ponce City Market, with tons of shareable small plates like a softshell BLT and peking duck steamed bun.
