Dinner at Floataway Cafe

Monday, March 4, 2013

It had been quite some time since our last visit to Floataway Cafe, so getting the opportunity to dine their last Thursday prompted a much needed reminder that we need to becoming more often! This hidden jewel of a restaurant has been crafting savory dishes with local and in season ingredients since opening in 1998. Its location is nestled between the Virginia Highland & Emory neighborhoods and occupies a space in a cluster of buildings that was formerly a commercial warehouse district. Floataway Cafe is part of a family of Atlanta eateries (including Bacchanalia and Star Provisions) founded by husband & wife couple and chefs Clifford Harrison and Anne Quatrano.

The design of the restaurant has expanded (by breaking through the wall to an adjoining space next door) from 1 room to 3 -- now offering a designated bar area and more room for additional tables and private dining. But, the change has not taken away from the cozy & soothing (putty & blue color palette) feel that surrounds you as you walk through the door and into a low lit room. Our dinner was fantastic from start to finish (pictures below)....  And to be noted, for the most part, tabletop items are from Heath Ceramics....
