Gunter Seeger polarized Atlanta diners from the mid-1980s until he left town in 2009, first at the Dining Room at the Ritz Carlton and then at his eponymous Seeger’s in Buckhead. Some said they had the best meal of their lives at Seeger's; some couldn’t understand the steakhouse prices for chilly service and stripped down platings. Get him or not, Seeger will return to Atlanta on October 26 to cook with Linton Hopkins at an already sold-out dinner at Restaurant Eugene.
