Best Sweets Spot: Georgetown Cupcake
Ever since moving to The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, Georgetown has been tempting taste buds with its famous fluffy cupcakes (try the seasonal white chocolate raspberry). Buckhead, @gtowncupcake

Best First Date: The Southern Gentleman
Get to know your potential mate by sidling up to the bar to sip on a Scarlet Belle or getting cozy in a booth while snacking on Vidalia onion crab dip at this eatery bursting with Southern charm. Buckhead, @atlsoutherngent 

Best Group Dining Spot: Gypsy Kitchen
With a sizeable bar and an unparalleled patio, Gypsy Kitchen is an ideal spot for mingling with pals over shareable charcuterie, tapas and cocktails, especially during happy hour. Buckhead, @gypsykitchenatl 

Best Italian: Dolce Italian
If the luxe design doesn’t grip you, the fare surely will. Order the Dolce meatballs, the margherita pizza with San Marzano tomatoes or the seared monkfish (and a Spicy Raspberry Collins of course). Buckhead, @dolce_italian 

Best Patio: Gypsy Kitchen
One of the city’s most popular spots for happy hour or birthday celebrations, Gypsy Kitchen’s Peachtree-facing patio is always full of head-turning patrons. Buckhead, @gypsykitchenatl

Best Singles’ Scene: Dolce Italian
When Usher, Gabrielle Union and Carrie Underwood roll into your restaurant, you’re guaranteed beautiful eye candy. Snag a seat at the bar to chat up the city’s reigning bachelors and bachelorettes. Buckhead, @dolce_italian.
