- •Saturday Dinner - BoccaLupoAtlanta's spot for pasta. It's not traditional Italian. It's a modern take on things. There's a good tasting menu, but if that's not your thing, white lasagna, squid ink spaghetti with shrimp and sausage, and 20 yolk tagliatelle with wild mushrooms. Bomb.com.
- •Sunday Brunch - Ladybird Grove & Mess HallGreat spot for brunch on a Sunday. Super patio facing the BeltLine. Strong beer selection and food menu. Try tacos, chicken wings, and guac. Dress casually.
- •Squeeze it in - PanaharLocated on Buford Highway, Atlanta's spot for the most authentic ethnic cuisine, this is the spot for Bangladeshi food, which is similar in style to Indian (think: curries).
