Echoing what many local foodies have believed for years, Buckhead’s acclaimed Bones restaurant was recently selected the best steakhouse in Georgia by the folks at Business Insider and Foursquare, who teamed up to name the best chophouse in every state. They praised how Bones “prepares all cuts of beef to perfection” and “stays true to its Southern heritage with side dishes that include hash browns and grit fritters.”

Where Violette once stood on Clairmont Road in Brookhaven now comes Petite Violette. The new eatery is a merging of the former Violette with the popular Petite Auberge that recently closed in Toco Hills after 42 years. In addition to a menu of French classics such as coq au vin and beef bourguignon, Petite Violette features an on-site tasting room and retail shop featuring more than 30 different olive oils and vinegars.
