When I visit friends or family in other cities, there's nothing I hate more than eating at a chain restaurant. What makes your city unique? What restaurants are your local favorites?
The Swan Coach House is a unique, Atlanta treasure that I frequently take out-of-towners when they visit. The floral, plush surroundings, fresh flowers on each table, dishes with the distinctive swan logo, and white table clothes are always a wonderful treat. The Swan Coach House is adjacent to the Atlanta History Center and the Swan House mansion.
The Swan Coach House is open for lunch Monday through Saturday. Mostly frequented by the ladies who lunch; but also seen there are tourists visiting the Atlanta History Center, bridal showers, and Buckhead matrons.
For a first timer, don't skip the free, delicious muffins your server brings to your table. Today my friend and I each had the grilled chicken salad. I would advise a first time patron to try the Swan's favorite which consists of two timbales with chicken salad, cheese straws on the side, homemade mayo, and their famous frozen jello salad. Don't miss the unique, round, delicious frozen jello filled with fruit!
