No. 9: Aria - 50 Best Restaurants - Features - Atlanta Magazine

No. 9: Aria

For birthdays and anniversaries, our dining critic celebrates at Aria. Gerry Klaskala may not change his New American menu as frequently or radically as other chefs, but be comforted to know that dishes like butter-braised lobster “cocktail” with broccoli mousseline and black truffle potatoes will be prepared with the same finesse year after year. Ditto pastry chef Kathryn King’s warm cheesecake, made lately with mild goat cheese. Charming general manager Andrés Loaiza leads one of the city’s most polished service staffs.
