Taking its moniker quite seriously, Canoe offers all the charm of cabin-chic—an actual (grounded) canoe greets you at the front door, the impressive vaulted ceiling is curved in the style of a boat. The entire space captures that old-world cabin feel, complete with a picturesque river-setting. But don't expect kitsch from this Atlanta institution, whose hallowed walls have raised some of Atlanta's brightest young culinary talent. Culling from her blossoming garden, Chef Carvel Gould has offered the surrounding Vinnings community her organic, contemporary fare for over a decade. And Sommelier Matt Bradford provides wine pairings on point with Gould's cuisine, pulling from a list of more than 500 labels.
