Hidden away on a side street in Druid Hills, Anne Quatrano’s Floataway Café, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, pale green and blue décor, and framed cloud photographs, literally makes you feel like you are floating. Its location inside a renovated warehouse acts as a sort of hanger-like backdrop, furthering the mirage. And Chef Christopher Schmidt’s understated, refreshing cuisine—a combination of French, Mediterranean, and Italian influences—furthers the feeling of lightness. But don’t think light means unserious. Shmidt is among some of the top talent we found in Atlanta. His menu offers everything from perfectly executed seafood compositions to playful and heartier meat preparations, proving you can find whatever you desire at Floataway Café.
