This week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jon Watson revisits Buckhead's La Grotta. He does so in a piece that bears a resemblance to this Creative Loafing post from a year and a half ago— Eat It, Atlanta points out this sentence from the AJC: "From the moment that you enter and either Favalli or his son Christian ... greets you at the door, it is clear that service is a top priority" to compare it to this one from Creative Loafing: "From the minute Favalli or his son Christian greets you at the door, you're swathed in good will." Moving on, Watson says that in addition to the impeccable service, La Grotta has a wine list that's "impressive" and an "extensive" menu. He also mentions that the restaurant will make you anything they can with the ingredients on hand, even if its not typically offered, and ends by saying this: "La Grotta deftly walks the fine line between outdated and classic" but can still "stand up against some of the best of Atlanta's new generation of chefs."
