A Buckhead staple since 1996, Prime is one of few Atlanta eateries specializing in both steak and sushi. The restaurant is located in Lenox Square Mall, but the dining room is surprisingly quiet and adorned with white tablecloths, high-back chairs, large windows and a bright, Picasso-style mural over the open kitchen. Fresh yellowtail sashimi and fried lobster tail minis are popular choices for busy shoppers, while diners seeking a heartier meal opt for the double filet. Every evening from 5 to 6:30, the restaurant also offers specials on select cuts of aged beef.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Melbourne claims to be the city with the third largest Greek-speaking population in the world (after Thessalonica and Athens), but it wasn’t until almost two years ago that the first creative modern-Greek restaurant opened here. Chef George Calombaris’s Press Club serves playful takes on Greek staples—for instance, reinventing the doughnut-like <em>loukoumades</em> as a savory snack made with scallops and salmon roe. The restaurant, near Federation Square, is in the former printing room of a majestic landmark building that used to house the <em>Herald Sun</em> and <em>Weekly Times </em> newspapers.
We loved: The deconstructed Greek salad appetizer, which includes a small feta soufflé and a sorbet of kalamata olives.
