We wanted to pick someplace special for our 700th Atlanta-area restaurant. There are few more special than this.
Sometimes, I’m sorry to say, we make a return trip to a restaurant that we feel needed a little more focus and attention, and we leave a little underwhelmed. That’s what happened to us earlier this month at this venerable meat-and-three.
This “community gathering place” opened earlier in the year, and invited us in to sample their new Southern menu, with lots of pork belly, pickles, and surprises.
It’s almost closing time for this fabulous, unpretentious restaurant after twenty-five years. Do not miss your chance to enjoy one of our city’s best burgers before it goes away!
We finally visited this popular family restaurant after many years of it sitting on our to-do list, and found that salads and giant desserts are almost as popular as the chopped pork.
We wanted to see the pretty fall colors – awfully damp this year, but still pretty – and so we drove up to one of our favorite areas of the south and finally visited a couple of barbecue restaurants that had been on our to-do list for years.
We were invited to sample some of the menu at this six year-old midtown restaurant. I was pleased, but Marie was really taken and plans to have this pot roast again.
Our dining plans in the Classic City changed, and so we diverted to a restaurant that we had intended to visit many months back but didn’t, a place which might have the very best name of any place that serves food, anywhere.
We enjoyed snacks at a couple of new places in the Classic City: Mr. Mr. Café and Condor Chocolate.
About a month ago, Marie and the baby and I went to Athens. It was raining then and it’s still raining today, but at least we started that trip at one of my favorite barbecue restaurants in Georgia.
We finally went to Buckhead to try their “chef-crafted” barbecue and sample a couple of the new things on the menu.
This local outfit is going back to basics, ramping up its home deliveries while emphasizing its eclectic menu. Marie joined some other media friends for a look behind the scenes at their facilities in Gwinnett County.
We were invited to try this popular gastropub’s new line of pizzas, and even though it broke my heart to come here and not order one of their excellent burgers, it all turned out okay.
With the quality of Atlanta cheesesteaks taking a notable dip lately, I do appreciate somebody from Pennsylvania coming here to do them right.
