Zagat Names Bacchanalia Atlanta’s Top Restaurant
Bacchanalia was named Atlanta’s top restaurant for the 17th consecutive year by the Zagat survey, the world's most trusted source for information about where to eat, drink, stay, and play.
Boasting a score of 29 out of 30 on Zagat’s distinguished rating system, Bacchanalia joins just 10 other restaurants nationwide that received this distinction. Bacchanalia also claimed honors for most popular and top service.
The acclaimed restaurant is the brainchild of chef-owners Anne Quatrano and Clifford Harrison. Executive chef Daniel Porubiansky and his culinary team of chef de cuisine David A. Carson and pastry chef Carla Tomasko prepare an exquisite five-course prix fixe menu that changes nightly and is abundant with fresh-grown produce and seasonal flavors, many of which come from Quatrano and Harrison’s Summerland Farm in Cartersville, Georgia.
“We are humbled to have been awarded this honor throughout the years and continue to strive toward the highest levels of excellence in cuisine and service at Bacchanalia,” Quatrano says. “We pride ourselves on providing an exquisite dining experience for our guests and are sincerely appreciative of our guests’ support.”
Bacchanalia has been featured in major culinary publications and is the recipient of four stars from Forbes Travel Guide. Quatrano and Harrison have been personally awarded many times over, including the distinction of The James Beard Foundation’s “Best Chef Southeast” in 2003.
In 2010 the duo launched Sunday Supper South, an annual event in Atlanta bringing together lauded chefs from across the South to prepare a family-style supper as a fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation’s scholarship fund.
