The Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View Restaurant Review: When visual drama is a key element in a dining experience, there’s often disappointment when the food arrives. But at the top of the Westin in downtown Atlanta, one may enjoy not only the cuisine and wine, but also a view of the city's skyline as Sun Dial slowly moves 360 degrees. The menu is not cast in concrete, but instead rotates through the seasons. Salmon, steak and vegetables --- the latter relying heavily on local produce --- lie at the core of the menu. We like the grilled chicken salad with dried cranberries and blue cheese. Grilled salmon with a vegetable salad may be enjoyed as a panino or as a light main dish at lunch. The wine list continues to improve, and if some of the offerings seem a bit ordinary, at least a large number of them pair well with the dishes. A reserve list of pricey selections is a feature, so one may impress a client.
