Located in the Vinings neighborhood a bit north/northwest of most of Atlanta's action, Canoe's tagline is "Tucked Away, Not Far Away." It’s positively gorgeous setting on the banks of the Chattahoochee River—not to mention its exquisite food and service—make it well worth the hike. If you're looking for delicious food with an unbeatable view Canoe is one of the best Atlanta restaurants to visit. The fare is New American with a leaning toward Southern fare and a focus on seafood, but it packs enough variety to please most any palate. For starters, the smoked salmon with crispy potato cake and Vermont goat cheese is a house specialty, while for mains it's got to be the slow-roasted Carolina rabbit with Swiss chard, bacon ravioli and candied garlic sauce. The salmon is awesome, but the rabbit is our favorite. While not cheap, Canoe pleasantly weighs in toward the more affordable end of expensive. You can have a nice appetizer, main entrée and a glass of wine and still drop less than $50 per person—and there are some very nice (and nicely priced) bottles on the “value selections” section of the wine menu.
