The gosh-wow handsome brothers who own THOMPSON BROTHERS BARBECUE take your order, chop the saucy pork and ring you up with flawless, heartfelt smiles. Although their addictive smoked bologna surely has its legions of male fans, this place is pure eye candy for the ladies. Photos of the charming brothers adorn the walls, providing fodder for countless fantasies. One Thompson brother stands ready by an Air Force plane, zipped into a flight suit; another, muscles rippling, commands the field in a UGA football match. Denzel hasn’t got a chance.
2445 Cobb Parkway, Smyrna. 770-818-9098.

BACCHANALIA continues to bedazzle as the consummate Atlanta fine dining destination. This town digs a little industrial grit with its foie gras terrine, so we love that Bacchanalia’s regal setting has its roots in a meatpacking plant. A savvy window separates the subtly elegant room from the bustling kitchen, allowing us to satisfy our voyeuristic urges without shattering our eardrums. But it’s Clifford Harrison and Anne Quatrano’s accessibly seasonal food that really makes us yearn for a special occasion to celebrate. Sure, you can choose superlative signatures (blue crab fritter, poached chicken with summer truffles) from the oft-changing prix-fixe menu, but choose a dish like sweetbreads or celery-anchovy salad to sample the kitchen’s daring versatility. less...

Pura Vida
Candlelight, cozy tables and sultry Latin music make PURA VIDA an especially good choice for a first date.

Candlelight, cozy tables and sultry Latin music make PURA VIDA an especially good choice for a first date. Chicken-stuffed empanadas, cremini mushrooms in chipotle-garlic butter and tender hanger steak drizzled with chimichurri (bring mints if you’re planning to steal a kiss later) are all prime dishes for sharing. A mojito or two to take the edge off, and next thing you know, you’re feeding each other bites of ceviche. less...

There’s so much to love at Midtown’s FABIANO’S ITALIAN DELI, but you can’t do any better than the “#1.” A double-fister of a sandwich, the #1 is a daunting stack of prosciutto, capicola and pepperoni with provolone or fresh mozzarella and paper-thin slices of tomato. Don’t count calories, just go with it. Eating this sandwich is a mood-altering experience — try it on one of our frequent rainy days.
985 Monroe Drive. 404-875-0500. www.fabianosdeli.com.

Tacos — mini-tacos, no less — are king at EL REY DEL TACO. The hard-to-beat price of around $1 each allows you to munch on roasted goat, beef tongue and cheek for the same price as a pint of beer. In addition to these slightly exotic offerings, El Rey del Taco’s more familiar favorites, such as the intensely beefy barbacoa, savory carnitas and pulled barbecued chicken, are equally outstanding. Bonus: The corn tortillas these fantastic little tacos are served on are pressed fresh to order. less...

Appetizers are a transcendental experience at FRITTI. Anyone who has ever ordered the funghi fritti (fried mushrooms) knows what we're talking about. Just thinking about those crunchy morsels tinged with rosemary makes us close our eyes and smile. And then there's the gossamer fried calamari. Forget the heavy dipping sauces. A spritz of lemon is all they need. But wait! Don't fill up on apps and forgo the Neapolitan-style pizzas. A blistered, crackery crust supports well-paired toppings - pancetta with caramelized onions and taleggio cheese with apples and pairs are two standouts - though the staff has softened over the years and lets you concoct your own combos as well. less...
