One of our favorite things about Midtown is the large selection of restaurants, from the casual Bakeshop featuring an array of homemade breads, soups, salads and deserts to the sophisticated Ecco Restaurant. There are over 50 restaurants you can walk to from our Atlanta bed and breakfast.
Ecco Restaurant has an Old World Style from the minute you walk through the Hugh glass doors to the rich walnut furnishings and glistening Italian marble floors. The focal point of the restaurant is the open kitchen featuring a tile wrapped wood burning stove, perfect for those wood-fired pizzas. The contemporary lighting sets the tone for a unique dining experience. If you prefer to just sit back and relax with one of their Signature drinks, and take in the Midtown skyline, there is a large patio widely enjoyed by many of their customers.
Executive Chief Micah Willix brings over twelve years of culinary experience to Ecco. His bold approach in developing the Ecco Restaurant Menus is European inspired and ever changing. His classic culinary roots focus on using the freshest ingredients available.
The menu begins with a large selection of Meats and Cheese to entice your palate. One of my favorites is the Thomasville Tomme, a semi-firm cow’s milk cheese produced by Sweet Grass Dairy in Georgia. You can read more about Sweet Grass Dairy in one of our previous blogs.
A few of the outstanding appetizers under the Taste and Share small plates is the Fried Goat Cheese with Honey and Fresh Ground Pepper or Piquillo Peppers stuffed with Braised Short Rib. The main courses will delight your taste buds with unique flavors such as Homemade Pasta with Chili Braised Pork and Garlic and Homemade Pappardelle or Grilled Georgia Quail on Polenta with aged Balsamic Vinegar.
If you just want something a little sweet to top off that perfect dinner, don’t forget to order desert. All deserts are made on the premises, from the truffles and ricotta cheesecake to the sorbet.
On your next visit to Atlanta, please try one of our Midtown Restaurants. I know where Ed and I will be making our dinner reservations for tonight!
