Restaurant Eugene located off Peachtree Road has been selected as one of the top 40 restaurants in the U.S. by Gayot.  It was the only restaurant in the state of Georgia to be selected.  Nationally, it sits among esteemed company such as Alinea in Chicago, Per Se and Masa in New York, and The French Laundry in California.

Per Gayot’s criteria:

“Culinary genius is not the only attribute a restaurant needs to make it to our Top 40 list. Destination dining needs to be exciting, intelligent and offer an exceptional experience that truly makes it heads and tails above the rest. Passion is essential because that is at the heart of a chef or restaurateur who can offer us a meal we will never forget.”

Chef/owner Linton Hopkins and his wife Gina also operate the highly lauded Holeman & Finch Public House. And coming soon to the family is the H & F Bottle Shop, a boutique spirits shop set to open this year.

Here is Gayot’s full review on Restaurant Eugene.
