WEST MID­TOWN/ WEST­SIDE

GA Voice - - Food & Mixology -

Nes­tled among the but­toned-up steak­houses and fine-din­ing con­cepts that flood the Buck­head restau­rant scene is the charm­ing Joy Cafe, where you can taste the love and at­ten­tion given to each made­from-scratch dish.

But the Southern fla­vor seeps into the af­ter­noon menu as well, in items such as the spot’s sig­na­ture peanut but­ter and jelly sand­wich and a dou­ble burger topped with pi­mento cheese, ba­con and tomato jam.

Restau­rants come and go quicker than the sea­sons in At­lanta, but for more than two decades Bac­cha­na­lia has stood out as a mod­ern At­lanta institution. It is one of the most el­e­vated din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences the South has to of­fer (from caviar and foie gras to its five-course ser­vice), and is
