So Near and So Nearly Perfect
A Midtown Atlanta dining guide would have to be very big or very selective, or both, and it might easily become too large to lift. The choices are so numerous and the offerings are so excellent that it’s best to think of dining anywhere near the numerous condos for sale in Midtown Atlanta in terms of the whole atmosphere they breathe across the neighborhood.
Altogether, the ways to enjoy a meal, a snack, or a drink in the neighborhood make up an example of what the best designers call “the new luxury.” It’s not about flash or status so much as about an honest, authentic experience. In that sense, the dining options in Midtown harmonize with the considerate, thoughtful luxury of the apartments at 1065 Midtown, so let’s use that as our “ground zero” and explore a few of the restaurants nearby.
As Close as Can Be
Among the nearest of all, the Saltwood Charcuterie and Bar is located in the Loews Atlanta Hotel. Though the Loews is one of Atlanta’s grand hotels, and a kind of crossroads to the world, the relaxed atmosphere at the Saltwood is very much part of its appeal. The menu makes it versatile, with locally sourced small plates, meals, and specialty cocktails presented with equal aplomb.
Café Intermezzo is also at the Loews, and, as its name suggests, is a welcome break, because it makes modern coffee establishments look like newcomers by comparison. Styled from the 300-year-old tradition of European coffeehouses – and the place they occupy in the lives of their communities – Café Intermezzo is refreshing in more ways than one. It’s been more than 45 years since founder Brian Olsen brought the inspiration back from his research in Germany and Austria, so the experience has stood the test of time.
And Overseas Without a Passport
RA Sushi Bar is another nearby option, where Midtown residents enjoy Japanese fusion dishes as well as classic sushi. Happy hours live up to their name. Bulla Gastrobar too is a neighborhood adventure, this time with a Spanish flair. Tapas and outdoor seating are among the options, yet the kind of dinner that keeps Madrid residents talking ’til 10 is another way to enjoy a visit to Bulla.
The arriving jets at Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport are like returning fishing boats to The Oceanaire, the outstanding seafood restaurant of Midtown Atlanta. The finest catches of the day, from the most-reputable fisheries, are perused carefully for each day’s offerings. The Oceanaire is an award-winner from ZAGAT, Wine Spectator, Jezebel, and Atlanta Magazine. Executive Chef Glenn Mills is an Atlanta native, and his passion for freshness and variety in seafood meets up with a modern American sense of cuisine that has a dash of regional influence, too.
The impact of fine cuisine and imaginative hospitality on the value of Midtown Atlanta real estate is a professional factor, as well as a pleasure for us. If you’d like to discuss the opportunities this might present to you, whether for living or investment, please contact us.
