Buckhead's 

The 'It List'

Buckhead's
8510 Patterson Ave. 750-2000

This is one restaurant that understands ambience — wood paneling, low lights, smoky jazz and a subdued atmosphere combine to make this a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Buckhead's is a classic New York-style chop house, from the aged prime beef to the extensive wine list. The food menu is only one page, the wine and spirits menus go on for another nine. Forget about moderation and indulge.

Although the menu offers other options, it would be foolish not to order one of Buckhead's signature steaks, vegetarians excepted. The steaks are flawless, from the incomparably rich steak fromage (steak smothered in melted bleu cheese and roasted walnuts) to a simple filet accented with a dense bearnaise sauce.

Classic starters such as garlicky escargot, and more recent innovations such as grilled portobellos, do more than whet the appetite. Desserts are rich — both in taste and in price — but are worth it.

The extensive wine list can be overwhelming, but the capable staff is always willing to make recommendations. Waiters are professional, but never obsequious.

You won't get out of here for less than $100 for two, but your money will be well-spent and the experience long
