Top Chef devotees know Kevin Gillespie as a fan favorite and Season 6 runner-up with a knack for turning Southern proteins haute. But before Gillespie gained his national reputation, many Atlantans weren't clamoring for a table at his Cheshire Bridge dining room. All that's changed now, and you'd be wise to book dinner plans a few weeks in advance. Check the continuously updated Web site to clue yourself in on the ever-changing seasonal menu. Dinner entrées might include pork loin with Southern-style creamed corn and grilled local quail with Vidalia onion purée; for dessert, tarragon-infused cantaloupe "sashimi" with candied ginger and pineapple-avocado flan with a white grapefruit confit may be among the choices. The staff and bartenders remain as inviting as ever.—Tiffany J. Davis
