Boston hound here, with a sister (and harried mother of two) who lives near Atlanta who enjoys going to the city for fine dining, but only makes it there, it seems, when I'm down visiting and force the issue.
Last year for her birthday, I treated her and a few others to a dinner at Bacchanalia, which I'd been hearing about for years. Lovely place, though I will admit that I found the food a little "old-fashioned." Not THAT old—it felt like late-’90s NYC, or something.
Anyway, this year I want to send her somewhere nice (can't get down there myself...) and wanted some recommendations. Price point isn't important, but I wouldn't mind something that seems a little more current than Bacchanalia (is Quinones worth considering??). Her partner has some seafood allergies, but otherwise they're good eaters.
Any thoughts? I realize this sounds very general. Nice atmosphere, great food...
Thank you in advance.
