In Translation

May 23, 2010

Every time I think I've found Atlanta's finest, another occasion arises and I'm falling in love all over again. Last night, I spent the evening with my friend Allison and a group of birthday party-ers in her honor at Hotel Palomar's Pacci Ristorante in downtown Atlanta. Its rep revolves around a very specific posturing -- that "The universal language spoken at Pacci is 'food.'” They're being modest. Fashioned as a modern translation of the classic Italian steakhouse, Pacci's savory menu is traditional, but sensible enough for even the pickiest of palates. The real treat, however, sits atop a winding staircase just off its main dining area. 

The AltoRex Rooftop Lounge is a coolly styled open-air rooftop destination true to its urban Midtown roots. If you like to kick back and unwind in the warm night air, head straight to AltoRex for lush landscaping with al fresco seating around fire pits, the bar and private cabanas - and a scenic view of the Atlanta skyline.
