The Buckhead Life Restaurants are amongst the best in Atlanta. One of the more hip, cool, “d.i.n.k.” and “swingle” places to go is Blue Pointe — a fusion of East meets West. Located in first floor of the Pinnacle Building in Buckhead, Blue Pointe is a happening place for lunch or dinner. It is also a fun place to go out for those special occasions with someone you love.
If you’re a people watcher you’ll enjoy the dinner scene. The decor of the restaurant is very modern with hints of the Orient. People come to see and be seen but that ambiance does not take away from the meal. Chef Doug Turbush has done an exquisite job of preparing a “feast for the eyes” before it hits the mouth — very Asian in presentation. And why shouldn’t it be? Chef Doug spent time in Thailand pruning his culinary skills.
For dinner I had the Garlic Crab Spring rolls as an appetizer. The entree was the Wok Charred Rare Tuna Steak on a crispy Somen Noodle Cake and it was out of this world!
Downside: The restaurant is not exactly family-friendly and things can quickly get pricey depending on what you order. All that said, I still highly recommend eating here if you are new to the Atlanta area, on business, or just passing through.
