Part of the Star Provisions complex, Bacchanalia has long been one of Atlanta's premier fine-dining destinations. Executive chef Daviid Carson and chef de cuisine Matthew Adolfi propose an elegant five-course menu for $85 (a comparative bargain), with suggested wines in two serving sizes. Start, for instance, with Georgia red shrimp with local Berkshire pork bello and local house-cured trout roe, then go on to Gulf crab fritter with Thai pepper, avocado, and Asian pear, followed by breast of duck with black trumpet mushrooms and sour cherry, then a cheese course of Jasper Hill Bayley Hayzen Blue from Vermont with pineapple pears and Georgia pecans, and finish with an apple napoleon with cat's tongue cookies and caramel popcorn.





  • appetizer - blue crab fritter
  • Sometimes a fritter is just a fritter, but the gulf crab fritter at Bacchanalia is one crusty crustacean that tops CLs 100 dishes list.
  • An elegant seasonal menu where almost everything is grown or raised on the chef's own farm.
  • not widely can order off a limited menu (instead of the pricey prix fixe menu) when you sit at the bar. bon apetit!
  • Be sure to note that the seasonal menu is a four-act play: appetizers, entrees, cheese and contrast and dessert.
  • OMG! It's like bread from heaven...ALL IN MY MOUTH! LOL
  • A mature restaurant, but never a dowdy one. Bacchanalia has a southern aesthetic but by no means antiquarian, meaning country-fried sweetbreads with artichokes, and quail stuffed with mortadella.
  • Blue crab fritter is the OG of Atlanta fine-dining dishes.
  • I love gifts from the chef!
  • Everything. Anything.
  • Long heralded as Atlantas favorite five-star restaurant, Bacchanalia features contemporary American cuisine using the freshest possible ingredients.
  • The 'Capone' corner table is the best seat. It's super romantic and you can see everything. Everything on the menu is great and they have gluten free options.
  • One of the best restaurants in the country. A Top Chef at a Top restaurant. You don't just come here for dinner, you come here for an Event. Come prepared to be dined like you never have b4.
  • Ahh Bacchanalia. La crme de la crme, the tip top, the highest standard restaurant you'll find in Atlanta. Expect to spend no less than a couple hundred for dinner for two.
  • The wine pairings really complete the tasting menu. It's a lot, but you can opt for a half portion. The vegetarian dishes are the best, IMHO, as many ingredients are sourced from their own farm.
  • Try the Heirloom Tomatoes & Mozarella - Zebra tomato sandwich and mozzarella. Bread is crusty and soft.
  • Try the Prosciutto And Sweet Butter Sandwich - Only two slices of prosciutto and just butter. Very European. When you have the best ingredients, you don't need a ton of it.
  • Try the Fried Shrimp Po' Boy - Not greasy with spicy mustard and perfectly briny shrimp.
  • Try the Fritatta - Potato goat cheese fritatta. In a muffin size. Great to share and great way to control calories.
  • Try the Cucumber And Dill Salad - Creamy yogurt lightly acidic and Tangy dill finish the salad. Refreshing on a hot day like today.
