Even though Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse is located in a mall, the dress code is business casual. You won’t see shorts-clad, flip-flops-wearing Phipps Plaza shoppers wandering into the elegant eatery. Instead, you’ll find men in slacks and button-up shirts — no need to don a tie or jacket — and ladies in sundresses, dressed-up blouses with pants or smart business suits. Neat-looking denim can pass here as well. Take a hint from the Italian steakhouse’s servers, who wear pristine white jackets and black pants.
The well-heeled crowd is made up of wheelers and dealers conducting business over filet mignon and New York sirloin, local Buckhead office workers unwinding with a glass of vino or limoncello lemonade, dates noshing on lobster ravioli before heading upstairs to the mall’s cushy AMC movie theater and maybe even athletes from the Hawks and Falcons carbo loading on the signature gnocchi with mushrooms and basil-truffle oil. So be sure to dress accordingly when dining at the Atlanta restaurant.
