There aren’t as many upscale places in East Atlanta as other parts of the city, but Banshee is helping to change that. This place is almost more mad scientist-inspired than classic fine dining, though, with an experimental, seasonal menu that covers a lot of ground. Come with a small group or a date and share a few of the larger dishes like the Szechuan pork osso buco and the charred broccolini with fonduta (kind of like broccoli and cheddar’s mature older cousin). And make sure to start with the hot and crispy fry bread that comes with pepperoni butter that you’ll want to smuggle home and spread on everything in your fridge.
