Atlanta Eats is constantly on a STEAK-out for new steakhouses in Atlanta – and finding a good one can be rare due to the high demand for well made food. But, Little Alley Steakhouse and The Palm in Buckhead, Arnette’s in Brookhaven and Kaisers in Sandy Springs have cooked their way into the hearts of Atlantans seeking good meat. In honor of National Filet Mignon Day, we are showing you some of our favorite filet mignon dishes from both classic Atlanta steakhouses and the new kids on the block.
Arnette’s Chop Shop:
Arnette’s Chop Shop can be found in the back streets of Brookhaven. This new restaurant radiates a unique vibe that separates it from traditional steakhouses. With tributes to some of the greatest musicians, Michael Arnette’s vision for this modern steakhouse hummed in. The ChopShop has a beautifully cooked filet mignon, which you can get as a 4 oz bone-in filet to a 6 oz, 14 oz, and even 32 oz.
Little Alley Steak Buckhead:
Although established in Roswell in 2005, Little Alley feels brand new with the opening of their doors in Buckhead. This new restaurant screams elegance – from their beautifully designed interior and amazing service all the way to their cuisine. This August 13th you should definitely be on the lookout for their Barrel Cut Filet. We challenge you to let the juiciness stimulate your taste buds and leave your stomach wanting more. Even Lady Gaga would wear this meat!
You remember that first steakhouse experience – biting into a steak and feeling a rush of flavor you’ve never had in a piece of meat like this before. There’s a good chance it happened at the Palm, and there’s a reason for it – The Palm is an institution that continues putting out great plates every dinner service. Ask for General Manager Andrei, who invented the “Pinky” cocktail that’s served at every Palm in the country.
Two of Atlanta’s great chefs, Kevin Rathbun and Peter Kaiser, have teamed up to create the Sandy Spring’s hit, Kaiser’s ChopHouse. Picture this: Einstein and Newton team up to discover a new element on the periodic table – this is basically the same thing. Their 6oz or 12 oz barrel cut beef filet is amazingly tender. It is sure to FIL(et) you up
We promise it won’t be a misSTEAK to try one of these delicious meats on National Filet Mignon Day!
