Guests can almost hear the roar of the surf from Peachtree Road when they step into the Oceanaire Seafood Room a sleek seafood and raw bar restaurant. The art deco dining room in shades of ice and watery blues will get you in the mood for an extensive selection of daily fresh fish.

This popular Midtown spot is almost as famous for its down home soul cooking as it is for the celebrity owner. The singer who made “Midnight Train to Georgia” a national hit has another hit on her hands, along with her son and partners Ron Winans and Reginald Washington.
Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles The entree menu changes daily in the casual dining room, but features such favorites as Southern fried chicken, collard greens, and of course, grits. The fresh-baked biscuits and indulgent desserts also draw loud praise. No alcohol.
