Here’s a very unexpected eulogy for a really good sandwich shop, an original and unusual place that will close after dinner service tomorrow.
While I was away, Marie and the children brought home supper from a very popular carry-out place up the road. A long way up the road, as it turned out!
The last stop of the trip was another good one. This was the newest business that I visited on this trip, and I had a fine meal here before coming home.
David and I met for lunch at this new place across the street from Piedmont Hospital. They cook with wood, their menu is simple, and their secret weapons are… carrots?
A co-worker recommended this very good restaurant that’s on Powers Ferry not too far from where we live, and it has a great buffet with a couple of vegetable dishes that we’ve never tried before.
It’s the second location for this local shop that specializes in “international chicken schnitzel cutlets.” We were invited to join the fun at the grand opening and sampled several of these fun and tasty sandwiches.
Marie was kind of ambivalent, and our son was downright cranky, but I really enjoyed this restaurant and hope we can give it another try sometime soon.
I heard that the Cuban sandwich here is the best in the Atlanta area. Well, claims like that you just have to check out, you know?
It’s been nearly six years since my favorite restaurant in the world went away. Here’s a eulogy for this wonderful Athens landmark that was written when this very special place closed its doors in early 2009.
One of the new restaurants in the Buckhead Atlanta development wears its influences on its sleeve, and offers a few dishes that really impressed us.
Many people have mentioned that this quiet place in Cabbagetown makes a great hamburger, but nobody talks about the onion rings. They should, because they are amazing.
Once upon a time, I swear, Windward Parkway was home to many interesting restaurants and unique-to-Georgia chains. Within eight years, it’s turned into an every-road-looks-like-this stretch of blah. At least the guacamole that I enjoyed when I worked up here is still good.
After spending the morning blowing our boy’s mind with trains and steam engines, Marie and her father had lunch at a Greek-American diner…
Checking in on a former Shrimp Boats on Lawrenceville Highway, I found that it’s been home to several businesses over the years, including an electronics store and a pizza place.
