Picture this. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Neither of you can decide where to go. One wants romance, one wants fun, one wants new, one wants different. What if you could have it all? This Valentine’s Day, four of our Atlanta restaurants will be offering exquisite prix fixe menus, and you are sure to find a favorite among the mix. Take (and taste) an experience that ranges from the cuisines and styles of Greece to authentic French and Italian favorites! You may fall more in love with the food than your date (fair warning).
Here’s the rundown:
Buckhead Diner | 40pp
Alexa, play I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston. Buckhead Diner will be playing 80s & 90s love hits all night long!

Bistro Niko | 79pp
Fans of French? Look no further. Bistro Niko is known for its French fare, and it also has the environment to match–a grand ceiling and art from Paris, as if it could get any more romantic. You can choose wines to pair with your four-course meal, but if you want to be bold, branch out and try one of Bistro’s many unique cocktails! There’s also an extensive craft beer list. The perfect option that has something for everyone!

The Tiki Thai will put you in a warmer state of mind.
In the midst of heavy bourbon drinks and full bodied wines hitting menus for the cooler months, Buckhead Diner adds a surprisingly Summery cocktail to their list. The “Tiki Thai” combines the fresh sweet-tart flavors of fresh pineapple and grapefruit juice with the complex sweetness of dark rum and coconut rum. The result is a cocktail that’s bright and citrusy but complex enough to be interesting.
Buckhead Diner’s Beverage Manager Jessica Purdy says “ We wanted to create a cocktail that would serve as a reprieve from heavy winter cocktails.” It’s even garnished with a luxardo cherry and tiny umbrella. Sip, Relax, Repeat.
1oz Meyers Dark Rum
¾oz Coconut Rum
1oz Tiki Thai syrup
½oz Pineapple juice
¾oz Grapefruit juice
Squeeze 1 lime wedge
Garnish with spiced sugar rim and luxcardo cherry
The Crimson Heat, Buckhead Diner’s newest cocktail, serves as a reminder that tequila should have a place on your bar cart long after Summer is over. The drink starts with a base of muddled jalapenos and fresh blood orange puree and is topped with tequila, triple sec, and served in a glass rimmed with house-made citrus salt. The result is a drink that strikes the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, and salty. “The goal was to create something seasonal that uses tequila in a non-traditional way. Most people automatically think margaritas when they hear tequila, but with this cocktail we wanted to challenge the idea that to have a great tequila drink you’ve got to also have a lime base. The unexpected flavors of blood orange are really what make the cocktail, and they also let you know that you’ve grown up from a margarita so to speak”, says the drink’s creator Jessica Purdy.
