You must visit visit Joel, there is really no choice on your part...ask for Phillipe Buttin, the sommelier, when you arrive. He's a real treat, a youngish French sommelier who will do everything that he can to make sure you have a good time. I worked with Joel for two years when I was with the Ritz Carlton Buckhead, and he combines the Classic French/Asian styles as well as anyone. He's world class, you'll be right at home there.
Also, two urban licks is a relatively new place, very high on the hip-meter, lots of unique wines, with a reserve list that you'll enjoy exploring. Visually, nothing in town can touch this place.The food is not quite at the level of Joel, but overall ambience just can't be beat.
These two places were the highlights of my visit there last month. Enjoy.
