4th & Swift

If visitors want to experience a restaurant that epitomizes the Atlanta aesthetic, take them to 4th & Swift. Situated in the restored Southern Dairies building at the edge of the Old Fourth Ward, the space speaks to our enduring love for industrial-chic: Towering rafters, wooden beams, and craggy exposed brick blend with a slick bar and a theatrically backlit dining room. Chef-owner Jay Swift’s food embodies Atlanta ambition with his dual menus—one that rotates four times a year with the seasons, and a nightly changing lineup that uses the freshest ingredients in light-handed ways. Pastry chef Chrysta Umberger punctuates the meal with wit. I love her Duck ’N’ Donuts—doughnut holes with unctuous foie gras ice cream (don’t wince; it completely works).
621 North Avenue NE, 678-904-0160, 4thandswift.com

    We loved hanging out there but the food was a slight disappointment with it being a little too salty. Steak was salty, so were the scallops, but scallops could be enjoyed as they were moist and fresh. Did like the butter and the octopus lasagna in the appetizers. Service is gracious and warm.
