In the beating heart of Buckhead is a French restaurant like no other in the city. With decor that’s reminiscent of the classic dining rooms of the 1920s, all that’s missing to make the place feel like burlesque Paris is a stage and Josephine Baker. Of course, if that’s what you’re missing, Atlanta has other places for you, you just won’t find Atlanta Eats cameras there (or, indeed, any cameras).
But back to the bar, because that’s usually where you’ll find the Atlanta Eats team. Along with an extensive wine list with a giant range of French reds, whites, and champagne, Bistro Niko stocks beers from France, Germany, Italy, England, and right here in Georgia.
And how about the food? Whether the charcuterie Grand Platter is your thing, or Herb Goat Cheese Ravioli, Shrimp En Brique or Steak Au Poivre, there is a classic French dish to match your palate, and the best thing is this: it’s all really good.
Coq Au Vin
There probably isn’t a dish that is more quintessentially French than coq au vin. Chicken braised in red wine with mushrooms, garlic, and lardons (which are cubes or strips of pork fat). It’s not the healthiest thing you can order, but you don’t order it to fit your diet.
This is one of our favorite French snacks: ham and gruyère grilled cheese sandwich, served with mornay sauce.
