Anis, located in a house on a Buckhead side street, is the best place to get wine drunk outdoors while eavesdropping on old ladies discussing the new hairdresser at the pet spa. The patio, with a charming but somewhat haphazard collection of potted plants and tools, is what we imagine our garden would look like if we lost our jobs, moved to Provence, and drank champagne outside all day. Get the mussels or the croque monsieur for lunch and add a bottle of wine before canceling the rest of your meetings for the afternoon.
