Valentine’s Day is next Sunday but that doesn't mean you get a free pass for dinner on the Friday or Saturday before. Here are 22 Atlanta restaurants with something special planned for one of the busiest weekends of the year.
Chris Flores, once a baker at West Egg and Bakeshop and executive pastry chef at Nikolai’s Roof, has been busy seeding his pastries around the city. Proprietor and pastry chef at the four-month-old Ratio Bakeshop, Flores makes everything from scones and macaroons to brownies and cheesecakes.
Open for more than 35 years, Nikolai’s Roof atop the Hilton Atlanta tends to fly under the foodie radar—though it is the only existing local restaurant to be awarded the AAA Four Diamond rating 24 years in a row (and those views can still wow). But this classic French/Russian restaurant is trying something new: It recently promoted 27-year-old Stephanie Alderete to executive chef, replacing Olivier De Busschere. Alderete worked under Busschere for two years and says she learned a lot from him, but she’s changing things up, working to infuse new life into Nikolai’s and its menu.
