The Hot List
The Most Romantic Tables in Town

UD - Table 60, 4th & Swift

Table 60, 4th & Swift

Here’s What: A private table for two nestled behind dramatic floor-to-ceiling curtains. Actually, more like semiprivate—because right next to you will be an enormous glass wall. On the other side of that wall: a bunch of chefs cooking your dinner.
Here’s Why: It’s basically dinner and a show. Only you can eat the show.
4th & Swift, 621 North Ave NE, 678-904-0160
UD - Table A5, Tomo

Table A5, Tomo

Here’s What: It’s the only two-top table in the entire restaurant that’s not inches away from the next one. And with the imminent threat of eavesdroppery out of the way, you can feel free to discuss whatever cupid-related... scenarios may be in store for the rest of the evening.
Here’s Why: Sake + privacy = cupid-related scenarios.
Tomo, 3630 Peachtree Rd NE, Buckhead (at the Ritz-Carlton Residences), 404-835-2708
UD - Table 21, Portofino

Table 21, Portofino

Here’s What: A cozy spot tucked away in a recessed corner of the main dining room. It’s also surrounded by wine racks.
Here’s Why: This is one of those “best-kept secret” places to begin with, but throw in a little seafood risotto, a bottle of chianti and a table surrounded by more chianti, and you’re gold.
Portofino, 3199 Paces Ferry Pl, 404-231-1136
UD - The Chef’s Counter, No. 246

The Chef’s Counter, No. 246

Here’s What: Picture sitting at a bar. Now picture sitting at a bar with chefs on the other side instead of bartenders. That’s this.
Here’s Why: Maybe it’s only a second date. Maybe your second date is boring (live and learn). Either way, eating dinner two feet away from back-of-house shenanigans should at least provide a talking point or two. That, and vodka.
No. 246, 129 E Ponce De Leon Ave, Decatur, 678-399-8246
UD - Table 41, Blue Ridge Grill

Table 41, Blue Ridge Grill

Here’s What: You’ll find a lot of booths in this place. But this one happens to be right next to the giant stone fireplace in the center of the dining room.
Here’s Why: There’s already a strong cabin-y, lodge-y vibe going on here—this just makes it official. No word on a hot tub banquette yet.
Blue Ridge Grill, 1261 W Paces Ferry Rd NW, 404-233-5030
