Authentic Southern hospitality is an absolute pleasure to experience, but if you can’t make it across the Mason-Dixon line by dinnertime, a meal at Table Fifty-Two is the next best thing. Located in the carriage house of the city’s historic Biggs Mansion, this award-winning restaurant from Oprah’s former personal chef draws raves for its deliciously decadent Georgia cuisine, making it a can’t-miss choice for date night. The southern comfort begins the moment you’re seated in the warmly lit and elegant dining room, as freshly-baked parmesan biscuits appear at your table as if by magic. As you await your fried green tomatoes, crispy chicken and waffles, and low-country shrimp and grits, make sure you take a mental image of how perfect your love looks basking in the romantic glow, then take a good look around the room. Owner Art Smith is famous for all his celebrity clients, and there’s a good chance you’ll catch a glimpse of a few movers and shakers. A spot at Table Fifty-Two is a hot ticket in this town, so make sure to reserve well in advance to ensure that you and your sweetheart can enjoy the very best of southern cuisine.
