Guests flock to this Atlanta seafood hub for high-quality, sustainable seafood from the country’s best suppliers. Tucked in an old ham-aging house, The Optimist serves up beer, wine and handcrafted cocktails with hickory-roasted fish and raw oysters, while beach-food classics like hushpuppies and lobster rolls transport you to your favorite coastal haunts. But seafood isn't their only area of expertise. If you stop by for lunch, be sure to order The Opti Burger, a house-ground beef patty that's cooked on the plancha and topped with American cheese, caramelized onions, dill pickles and a Creole remoulade.
