Zagat released its 20th annual survey of Atlanta restaurants yesterday, and the results are…..not very surprising.
Bacchanalia again headed the list of 737 restaurants in the “top food” and “most popular” categories. Quinones at Bacchanalia got the nod for “top service,” while Nan Thai Fine Dining earned “top decor.” Other high-scoring restaurants include Bone’s, Rathbun’s, Aria, Canoe and Nikolai’s Roof.
In other findings:
- 51% of Atlantans make their reservations online, second nationally to San Francisco with 52%.
- Atlantans eat out 3.3 times a week, slightly above the national average of 3.2 times.
- The average meal here costs $31.35, significantly below the national average of $35.25.
- Significant percentages of the 2,731 survey respondents reported cutting back on alcohol, appetizers and desserts in an effort to keep meal costs down.
