How do you like your wings? This popular Buckhead hangout offers at least 20 varieties, and always draws a crowd, so don't be surprised if you have to wait in line for a bucket of winged wonders. If you're with friends who don't share your winged infatuation, direct them to the healthy sandwich and sub menu on hand. Beer and wine is available for making a party out of your outing.
This small but airy place serves up cheap, authentic Mexican grub, although the low prices are not a good indicator of the quality of the food. In addition to traditional Mexican favorites, the menu integrates some Caribbean elements such as real black beans instead of their mushy fried relatives. Area students find the prices appealing and keep the place hopping. Willy's is also a favorite with kids, as they can pick from their own separate menu. Lunch and dinner shouldn't run more than USD10 per person, and Mexican beer is available.

3500 Peachtree Road Phipps Plaza Atlanta, GA 30326
The happy hour crowd here is well dressed and well heeled, and although the name and decor suggest that this is a tavern, the style here is a little more upscale. A nice menu of salads, sandwiches and appetizers draws a steady flow of shoppers from ritzy Phipps Plaza, while the drinkers generally flock to the patio that overlooks Peachtree Street. Try the Tavern's venerated chips and dip, or bite into a New Orleans Po Boy Sandwich, another specialty. Full bar service is available, and smoking is permitted on the patio. See website for menu and links to the Tavern's regional sister establishments (such as Joey D's Oak Room).
This high-profile contemporary Italian spot was named among America's top new restaurants by Esquire magazine when it opened its doors in the late 1990s.

While the setting is quite formal, the food is no-nonsense old country, from homemade pastas, salads and pizzas to a wide array of regional seafood, fowl and meat dishes. A fantastic dessert menu is matched only by the well-respected wine list. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
