The overt country-club feel meshes with a distinct undercurrent of mellow booziness at this Southern-style restaurant that stands out from its surroundings on one of Midtown's seediest strips. Don't be daring. Go for the basic meat-and-two and choose the hot vegetables for sides. The fried chicken is the go-to order for generations of Atlantans. When you're looking for the dining equivalent of a comfortable old friend, visit the Colonnade.
