This is Buckhead's Sexiest Restaurant

The Bar at The BettyMalika Bowling (

Tucked away inside the Kimpton Sylvan hotel in the heart of Buckhead is The Betty. It’s sleek decor is the perfect ambiance for a romantic date night. And if you’re staying at the hotel for a staycation or just to treat yourself, you’re just steps away from a great evening. No Uber necessary.

What a gorgeous space inside the Kimpton hotel in Buckhead. Note: the entrance and valet for The Betty is at the front while the valet for the hotel is around the back. So dinner guests don’t have to wait in the same car line as hotel guests. As you enter The Betty, the sleek, illuminated bar dominates the scene. Like a Choose Your Own Adventure book, you can steer right where the bar continues and opens up to an elevated seating area above the restaurant.

Honey Don't cocktailMalika Bowling (

It’s the perfect spot to meet up for drinks. The cocktails list is divided into two sides: “Classic Sips” and Betty’s Own. I got the Honey Don’t cocktail from the Betty’s Own. With tequila, honey and honeydew I thought it may be a bit sweet but the manager assured me it would be perfectly balanced and it was all that and light and refreshing.
Crudo appetizer at The BettyMalika Bowling (

If you are dining at The Betty, do yourself a favor and allow some time to have a cocktail at the bar before sitting down. For an appetizer, the Crudo is a can’t miss. There’s a spectacular Yuzu-like sauce it is served atop which adds the perfect amount of citrus with a hint of tart.

Steelhead Trout at The BettyMalika Bowling (

If you’re a fan of duck, this one knocks it out of the park. There’s a persimmon sauce that is served over for a hint of sweetness. Plus it’s a huge portion - I only ate half and brought the rest home. Also on the menu is a Steelhead Trout (it’s similar to salmon). That was divine too.
Brulee CheesecakeMalika Bowling (

Save room for the dessert. There are no shortage of dessert drinks either. A lemon brulee cheesecake was a small treat to end our meal.

Protip: there’s some fun photo ops if you walk around the the back (check-in) side of the hotel near the fireplace!
