Have you ever heard the phrase "phone eats first"? Well, in this day and age, this is extremely true. Many times, going out to eat is never just about the food - it's all about the experience of taking great photos to post all over your social media. In this article, I'll break down my top five spots to take the most Instagram-worthy photos in Atlanta, while also getting a great bite to eat.

1. The Garden Room

One of the most well-known aesthetic restaurants is The Garden Room, located at the St. Regis in Atlanta. Although it can be difficult to get a reservation here, if you can get one, it is certainly worth it. The gorgeous floral decorations make this restaurant one of the most popular spots in town, perfect for a craft cocktail and a photoshoot. 

2. Buena Vida Tapas & Sol

A personal favorite of mine is Buena Vida Tapas & Sol, located near the Beltline. Not only are the tapas amazing, but the environment is super fun and lively. There's even a colorful flower wall that's amazing for photo opportunities. This is a great place to go with a group of friends and share a bunch of tapas - the charcuterie board and vegan meatballs are my plates of choice.

3. Gypsy Kitchen

Another amazing Tapas restaurant is Gypsy Kitchen. Located in the gorgeous Buckhead Village area, both the rooftop and interior of this restaurant provide many picturesque photo spots - not to mention the tapas are amazing. I personally recommend the steak and brussel sprouts! Spend a nice spring night out on the rooftop with friends.

4. 9 Mile Station

If you are looking for another fun rooftop option, this is the place to be! Located right on top of Ponce City Market, 9 Mile Station is a special place to enjoy a special dinner. They offer a wide variety of food options, as well as gorgeous views of the Atlanta skyline. Added bonus: you can take a nice around Ponce City Market when you're done eating. 

5. Bread and Butterfly

Unlike the other restaurants on this list, Bread and Butterfly is not a dinner place, but a brunch restaurant. Located in Inman Park, it's an ideal spot to grab a weekend brunch with friends. I love their French omelette and crispy potatoes, perfectly paired with the eatery's aesthetic green tiles and gorgeous decorations. This makes Bread and Butterfly a great place to take photos with your friends - and of your food.
