Almost everywhere you turn in Atlanta, there is a new wine/tapas bar. The local chain of McGrape, is a good place for beginners and tourists. But for the more sophisticated palate, Eno is where it's at. Several years ago, when we first started going, it was just a small wine bar, with a great selection. And Midtown has grown, and Eno has evolved into the premiere Wine/Tapas destination. Expenisve, yes! Unique, yes! It's not for everyone, but for us Atlantan's who have matured also, it is still the place. Candlelit and cozy, artwork by Timothy Tew Galleries, and outside tables to watch the Midtown Mile. The Mediterranean Tapas menu, with suggested wine pairings, is upscale and unique. We usually just stick with the small plates. A good start is the Pan Seared Foie Gras w/Brioche French Toast. Another favorite is the Five Spice Braised Beef Short Ribs w/Orange Glazed Carrots. Also love the Housemade Lamb Sausage w/Granny Smith Risotto. Desert menu sounds great, but usually we stick with a cheeseplate selection, from the Barrelman next door. Service can be a bit snobbish at times, but after a few glasses of wine, who cares with Tapas and drink of this calibre.
Pros: Atlanta's Best Upscale Wine/Tapas Bar!
Cons: Expensive, But You Get What You Pay For! Parking Is Tight!
