Date Night

Ziba’s Restaurant and Wine Bar

If you’re looking for cool neighborhood vibes and homemade cooking, look no further than one of Grant Park’s best kept secrets. Just steps away from Burnett Grant Park, Ziba’s “home away from home” atmosphere and excellent service has kept patrons flocking since 2010.


This award-winning, eclectic eatery is run by Atlanta’s culinary sweetheart, Kevin Gillespie, recently named a James Beard Award semifinalist. With no set menu, Gunshow’s dishes are presented on rolling carts and trays, allowing diners to decide whether or not they’d like to partake. It was also recently named one of the top 50 restaurants in Atlanta by Atlanta Magazine.

Mediterranea Restaurant and Bakery

For a healthy take on date night, head to this gluten-free safe haven, serving up fresh Mediterranean fare that never disappoints. Built on an old trolley station, Mediterranea offers diners a cozy and romantic ambiance. Complete with a rooftop space and plenty of string lights, this is an incredible addition to the neighborhood.

Quick Bite

Bennett’s Market and Deli

This neighborhood staple offers weekly dinners to go, groceries, organic meats, charcuterie, and wine while also serving up sandwiches, salads, and soups. Word on the street is that their turkey club and roast beef sandwich will change your world.

Grant Central Pizza and Pasta

This neighborhood pizza joint is perfect place to grab a slice on the go. Offering daily and seasonal specials, there is more than just pizza to drool over. Take a seat at the bar with a beer or get your food to go so you can Netflix and chill with a fresh za by your side.
