Table 1280


1280 Peachtree St. N.E., Woodruff Arts Center,
United States,

Occupying a soaring glass, Renzo Piano-designed space inside the Woodruff Arts Center, this hip, minimalist brasserie has what may be Atlanta’s most dramatic dining room. High Museum visitors and tourists gather here at lunchtime, and Chef Todd Immel pleases them with a relatively tame lunch menu (chicken Ceasar salads, crab cakes, and Flatiron steaks). At night, though, the restaurant is a hub for hip foodie locals—and Immel kicks things up a notch with more creative a la carte choices (foie gras trochon with brioche and quince-orange jam; mint tagliatelle with a savory lamb ragu). There’s also a frequently changing lineup of tapas dishes—great for nibbling alongside selections from the excellent, globe-spanning wine list.
