With a named derived from the Roman god of indulgence, Bacchanalia is indeed one of the best places to eat in Atlanta, and one of the city's most indulgent pleasures. Zagat's has repeatedly picked it as the city's best and we couldn’t agree with them more. Using only organic ingredients (many culled from the personal farm of chefs and co-owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison), Bacchanalia melds freshness, flavor and earth-friendliness in its seasonal New American cuisine. For us, tops on the dinner menu would be the Georgia rainbow trout served with local sweet corn and chanterelle mushrooms although the wood-grilled Tybee Island shrimp (from the coastal island off Savannah) is a close second. The four-course prix fixe menu consists of appetizer, entrée, cheese and dessert and runs $75 per person. A la carte items are available at the bar. If you're going that route, choose the blue crab fritter appetizer served with Thai pepper essence, a perennial favorite and considered by many to be among the world's best. Closed Sundays.
