A friend from Atlanta is coming up to visit us this weekend and wants to find a restaurant that plays with American Cuisine in new and interesting ways. His fav's in Atlanta are Empire South, Leon's, Flip Burger, etc.
We suggested WD-50, but their tasting menu is out of his price range. My wife and I usually eat non-western cuisine, so we're unsure what will be a fantastic New American restaurant. We're taking him to Momofuku Ssam, but that is it so far.
I really appreciate your thoughts!
