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.
Charcuterie on the Butcher's Board
All the classic cuts while you start your pre-dinner conversation – traditional country pâté, artisanal salami, prosciutto di parma + condiments to compliment.
Maine Sea Scallops
Perfectly sautéed sea scallops (look at that caramelization on the top!), asparagus, sorrel white wine sauce, and potato purée.
Mussels "Gilbert" et Frites
A must have for every French bistro – no one does it better than Bistro Niko. Blue hill mussels in white wine, shallots, cream, parsley, and served with a side of pommes frites.
Mustard Crusted Pork Belly
