2017 BEST OF AT­LANTA AWARDS

GA Voice - - Georgianews -

LGBT-owned Cowtip­pers (cowtip­per­sat­lanta.com) is known for a few things ‘round th­ese parts: its cow­boy-themed dé­cor and menu, its se­lec­tion of 100 tequi­las and, ob­vi­ously, its pa­tio down Pied­mont Road. En­joy the sum­mer sun, some ar­madillo eggs (fried stuffed jalapeños) and a sig­na­ture Texas mar­garita all at once.

Tav­ern Ro­man­tic

Owned by this year’s sec­ond-place best At­lanta chef Twisted Soul (www.twist­ed­soul­cook­house­and­pours.com) opened its doors late last year with a mis­sion to el­e­vate the din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Its in­ti­mate set­ting in West Mid­town is per­fect for date nights, where you two can en­joy duck breast with red beans and rice, or moon­shine pound cake with laven­der whipped cream. Spice things up with an aphro­disiac wa­ter­melon moon­shine cock­tail made by VanTrece’s wife.

(il­lo­calino.com) is At­lanta’s sec­ond-fa­vorite ro­man­tic spot, fol­lowed by
