Fried chicken is on the menu only during Atlanta native Linton Hopkins's three-course, prix fixe Sunday suppers, and it's so popular it's been known to run out by 7 p.m. The rest of the time, diners are plenty happy to tuck into his other, globally influenced dishes, many of which are still rooted firmly in the South. Standout appetizers have included white gazpacho topped with olive-oil ice cream and micro-greens, sweetbreads atop Anson Mills grits with wilted spring Vidalia onion, and seared foie gras with corn fritters and honey-glazed beets. If it's on the menu, don't miss the pork belly entrée, cooked sous vide with homemade bread-and-butter pickles, stone-ground grits, and veal jus. For dessert, it's hard to beat the deconstructed candy bar, concocted with homemade nougat and Valrhona chocolate—or after-dinner drinks at the bar, where the bitters, tonic water, and maraschino cherries are all made in house.

Tip: For maximum privacy, ask for one of the banquettes on the far side of the softly lit, minimalist dining room. You'll need to make your weekend reservations at least two weeks ahead.
