1 St. Cecilia
Located inside the Buckhead Pinnacle building, St. Cecilia features a menu influenced by the coastline of Spain, France and Italy. The focus is seafood and handmade pasta as well as small plates like fresh crudo, cured meats, hearth roasted octopus, and burrata. Then move on to seasonal entrées, like Maine sea scallops and wood roasted branzino. Or choose from a rotating selection of handmade pasta dishes, from squid ink spaghetti with tomato-uni ragu, to rich gnudi with house ricotta and brown butter. However you order, the food is the worth the hefty price.

This gem in Buckhead is one of the most well-known among foodies and Atlanta's elite. Owner and chef Gerry Klaskala changes the menu seasonally and while it can be viewed online, prices are not listed. Simply because they aren't important. Entrees usually run between $28 to $42 but for the ultimate spender, opt for the additional six-course taster menu for the table.

3 Restaurant Eugene
With superb wine pairings and a new American menu that is as upscale as you can get, the restaurant has often been described as sophisticated and the prices reflect that. Chef Linton Hopkins is a culinary genius and his elegant, delicious and sophisticated menu reflects that.
