Wine & Dine Me: TopFlr

Last night, my girlfriends and I ventured over to TopFlr in Atlanta. The wine bar/restaurant has been making quite a splash since its opening in 2007, and it's fantastic selection of wines, great food and uber chic atmosphere keeps Atlantians coming back for more. Click here to check out the interior of TopFlr (it's a work of art!)
Among the local praise, TopFlr has received big name recognition from professional foodies. Bon Appetit released a "Hot 10" list of national wine bars. TopFlr made the cut, as well as one of my favorite DC spots, Cork.

Bon Appetit's The Hot 10: Raising the Wine Bar
1. Terroir, New York
2. Bar Bambino, San Francisco

3. Top Flr, Atlanta
"At this two-story gem in Midtown Atlanta, the small but smartly chosen list changes weekly and always includes interesting varietals from small-production wineries. The full-flavored, rustic food—duck confit and applewood-smoked-bacon pizza, grilled hanger steak—completes the experience."

4. Tria Cafe, Philadelphia
5. The Local Vine, Seattle
6. Cork Wine Bar, Washington, D.C.
7. Brasserie du Vin, Honolulu
8. Tasca, Los Angeles
9. Max’s Wine Dive, Houston
10. Lavomatic Café, Cincinnati

Places such as TopFlr and Cork make me want to eventually open my own wine bar/restaurant! One day...maybe I'll open it in DC and call it "Reds, Whites & Bubbly" hmm...
