    This subterranean restaurant billing itself as Virginia-Highland's oldest steakhouse has churned out some of Atlanta's best martinis (they come with a "sidecar" — a little extra shot of booze).

    Beware-it's a total cave. ZERO cell phone reception so lay out rocks or bread crumbs before you go in so that people can find you if necessary.

    Stick around post-dinner. The further the night progresses, the blurrier the line between Highland Tap the steakhouse and Highland Tap the alcohol-cured hunting tavern becomes. Read more
