4-course at Bacchanalia or 7-course tasting at Eugene?

Greeting from the Manhattan board!

my buddy and i are going to ATL for Labor day weekend for some vacation time, and obviously trying to eat the best ATL has to offer. Already have both reservation for that saturday night for Bacchanalia and Restaurant Eugene. Now we need to make a decision and cancel one of them!

If we go to Eugene, will definitely go for the 7-course tasting. Bacchanalia has only the 4-course option so we will have to go with that as Quinones room is booked out that night :(

Both of us have had a lot of modern french/american fine dining experience in new york, so we are looking for something more local/southern, something we can't find here in nyc. So which one should we go for? don't care about wine list or decor/service as much. we are all about the substance (food)

Since its labor day weekend, would you feel either of these two places may not be up to the normal standard? if so, we'd like to know and avoid that.

note: going to Southern City kitchen for sunday dinner, and probably Daddy Z for saturday lunch. Any recommendation for Sunday lunch? prefer something that is not upscale, more on a local diner/daddy Z level (less than 25bucks per person)

Any other recommendation would be appreciated too, will have a car, willing to drive up to 1hr each way for good food.
