1. Polaris 265 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30303

Polaris is a rotating restaurant on top of a Downtown hotel. Expect apps like brandy rabbit boudin with fried pork belly cracklings and caramelized Benton’s bacon popcorn, or entrees like cold-smoked Kurobuta pork tenderloin, or slow-stewed red chile chicken? It's THE place for proposals and graduations -- especially after the one-million-dollar renovation -- and rotates every 45 minutes.

2. Bar Amalfi 1077 Hemphill Ave NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

If the limoncello selection isn't enough to get you to Bar Amalfi, try the small plates like a caprese salad or wood-grilled prawns. It's an open-air restaurant and the patio makes it a totally casual drinking spot.

4. The Painted Pin 737 Miami Cir NE, Atlanta, GA 30324

Plus they've got signature cocktails like a Moscow Mule Slushie that probably won't help your score but are totally worth it.

6. Smokebelly BBQ 128 E Andrews Dr NW, Atlanta, GA 30305

Buckhead's Smokebelly BBQ is a celebration of the South through soulful, belly-warming barbecue with a contemporary twist. And you’ll find iterations of Texas, Tennessee, and Carolinas barbecue traditions alongside the hometown style. Barbecue comes in tapas (brisket disco fries and cherry cola ribs), plates, and on sandwiches. Dieters, rejoice! Quinoa bowls and salads are also on offer, but if it were me, I’d go for the Pit Masters Platter: smoked turkey, pulled pork, or brisket with four sides, because three is just never enough.
