Bold white columns and a deep blue ceiling dotted with a constellation of tiny glowing lights draw your eyes around the magnificent dining room of Kyma. Once the food is served, your eyes never leave your plate. Share tapas like dolmades (tomato and bulgur wheat wrapped in grape leaves), the classic spanakopita (a thin pastry over spinach and feta), or Watermelon Salad with feta, onions, and watermelon sorbet. Try a slightly bigger dish like eggplant stew with onions and tomatoes or baby beets with potato garlic spread. You could also dive straight into a hearty meal of simply seasoned authentic Greek whole fish like royal dorade or lavraki. Chef Pano's specialty is the Red Snapper Briam with eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, and potatoes.

Holeman and Finch Public House in Buckhead astonishes even at the front door, where a large glass enclosure holds hanging shanks and legs of meat.

At ten on the dot, 24 (and ONLY 24) double cheeseburgers are served, and are said to sell out sometimes in less than a minute.
