Sauteed Sea Scallops at Bistro Niko
White wine nage. That's the delectable sauce that surrounds the sea scallops at Bistro Niko. Start with an endive salad and glass of champagne. Then move ever so slowly to your scallops in sauce. Pair with a chardonnay. It's a great way to spend the lunch hour on Peachtree.
Time for an afternoon sleep...
Slow Roasted Carolina Rabbit at Canoe
HWYD's best rabbit in town. It's also one of our top recommended dishes overall. Chef Carvel over at canoe takes slow cooking to new levels with this ultra-refined dish. Slow roasted Carolina Rabbit with Swiss Chard, bacon ravioli, sweet potato hash and candied garlic sauce. Start with the marinated golden and red beet salad with whipped Vermont goat cheese, candied walnuts and basil oil. Then move on to the rabbit. Finish up with their seasonal sorbet. Pair the rabbit with a bordeaux. Add Canoe's backdrop of the lazy Chattahoochee drifting by, and it's a great way to celebrate that you're in Atlanta.
