Get 5 star treatment at these Atlanta restaurants

The hallmarks of good service are timeless. A friendly mien, attention to detail and an ability to read a guest’s mood and preferred level of interaction will always earn repeat business. A few new restaurants go a step further and curate the experience.

At the minimalist 16-seat Dish Dive, owner Jeff Myers pops out of the kitchen to take your order on the iPhone he uses for his POS, chats a little and opens the bottle of wine you’ve brought to this strictly BYO establishment. You choose from the six or seven dishes on the menu (heck, get them all and don’t miss the lamb-neck gravy fries), and pay by swiping your finger on the phone. It’s like a handshake that says “until next time.”
