Rooftop dining at French American Brasserie

Posted in Around Atlanta, Cheap Eats, Where's Corinna? with tags on September 2, 2010 by Corinna Allen Cook


I entertained some out of town friends last night at the French American Brasserie in downtown Atlanta.

I’d originally invited them there because I know the dress code is so flexible, with business suits and cocktail dresses in the dining room, and jeans and boho chic at their iconic zinc bar.

But at the suggestion of manager Cindy Brown, we decided to sit upstairs on their rooftop patio.

So glad we did!

The view is breathtaking during the day, but at night, with the lights of the city reflected on the surrounding buildings the sight is nothing short of stunning.

And with September here, the time is right to venture back outdoors and enjoy some of the best weather Atlanta has to offer.

Check out this article I found in West Cobb Magazine rounding out some of the best spots in town to enjoy “Dining Afreshco Style”.

Caviar at Bistro Niko

Think Caviar is out of your reach? Think again — just had a heavenly lunch at the new Bistro Niko on Peachtree in Buckhead.

A two ounce tin of fresh Irish caviars is served with brioche croutons for just 14 bucks.

Ad a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and you have yourself what I lik to call “heaven on a plate!”
