For my birthday, my husband and I dined at Restaurant Eugene and it was outstanding. We started at the bar; I had a specialty cocktail and he had champagne. My drink was a layered sensory experience which brought appreciation to a cocktail that one might normally associate with wine. We both chose the chef's tasting menu. At times the portion size reminded us of Gunther Seeger (famed Atlanta chef from the Ritz-Carlton Buckead which we loved, and his own subsequent restaurant which never caught on with us...), but that was nit-picking. It was delicious. We just wanted more of it. The genius of serving enough within a course to satisfy, yet leave the diner refreshed for the next course must be carefully balanced. We never felt hurried OR forgotten. Our questions about the wine list were answered with expertise to the nuances of each vintage and the wine we chose we enjoyed immensely. The dining room is classic contemporary with a monochromatic grey tone, which when the evening progresses, doesn't distract from the experience of the food. I highly recommend Restaurant Eugene as a quintessential Atlanta top tier dining experience.
