|Will be there on business for a couple of days, looking for a couple of good places to schmooze people (good wine list a must). Any thoughts would be appreciated.|
|Havent been there in 3 years but we had a wonderful meal at Kyma, one of the Pano e Paul kitchens. At the time, the chef at the restaurant was Pano's son I believe. Had been trained at CIA and back in the homeland as I recall.|
|Hello Theresa, |
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.
|I'm going to follow your advice. :)|
Hope you're doing well, we miss seeing you up here in Boston!
|check out the Buckhead diner|
Pricci's if you like Italian
Chops for great steaks
Pano & Paul's for 4 stars
Fish market for seafood

|you might search the WLDG forum using the name Mike Evans as author. then use the email blue tag.|
|would be to contact Mike Evans who lives and works in HotLanta. Also, Mike is a wino and foodie, so I am betting he knows all the right answers. Mike has a bio on the WLDG bio page with a blue email tag, which might still be current....don't know about that though. Good luck.|
