With its dark wood paneling, brown leather seats, low lighting, and long wooden tables, 1KEPT feels a bit more like the setting for an après-ski cocktail in Vail than dinner in the middle of trendy Buckhead. But this neighborhood spot, opened in 2013 in the former Toulouse space, may be the area's best-kept secret (no pun intended). The menu trends toward upscale Southern-American cuisine that's every bit as tasteful as the décor. Start with the deviled quail eggs in bacon jam or the tomato basil soup with pimento cheese crouton. You should definitely order a flatbread; my personal favorite is poached pear with spiced honey crème, frisée, grilled radicchio, and feta, although the BLT isn't shabby either. Mains are a mix of game and pasta-like dishes (tagliatelle, risotto). Popular Bavarian dish chicken schnitzel and spaetzle is a standout. For dessert, the red velvet cheesecake might be on the menu—if you're lucky. Don't forget cocktails, as there are some interesting ones like the Georgia Heat, with watermelon purée, mint simple syrup, champagne, tequila, and serrano peppers. The team behind 1KEPT is philanthropic, as well: They make a six-course meal Tuesday through Thursday that they've dubbed Charity Counter. Patrons decide how much money to give, 100 percent of which goes to one of the restaurant's chosen charities. There's no valet parking, though there is a private lot where you can self-park. The crowd is of the trendy professional variety, so dress to impress.
