About Me

My photo
I've been part of the Atlanta scene since 1991 and have seen restaurants come and go. I've eaten some really amazing foods but have had some really awful experiences. I'm here to share with you my thoughts and views of the things that are going on in the city. Especially when it comes to eating. Now I'm reaching out to different parts of the country. Who know's; I may be in a city near you soon!

Lure is the New Crown Jewel of Fifth Group!

The location of what was once an Atlanta icon; “Vickery’s” is now home of a new midtown hotspot; Lure. This Fifth Group destination is one of the crown jewels of the FG Family. And at the thrown is Executive Chef  David Bradley who has masterfully defined the magic art of culinary chefdom. Once I stepped into the beautifully wood adorned dining area for the first time; I couldn’t’ help but anticipate the experience of what this virgin moment would possess.

Completamente Soddisfatti

The beautiful and  hot go to spot is located in the heart of Decatur.  No. 246 has the heartbeat of authentic Italian cuisine.  The stark white walls are a sharply contrasted canvas against the hardwoods. As patrons fill the dining room; is like a different stroke that brings this masterpiece of culinary dreams and cozy conversations to life.

STK is Sex in the City

Ladies be ready to try a stiletto that’ll surely be a nice addition to your dining ensemble. (Made with Grey Goose citron, cucumber, mint and fresh lime  juice).  Don’t be fooled in thinking that this is an all girls haven.  The guys will also be equally enticed  by a nice catch or two. The meet is always something to look forward to.  Whether it’s a pan seared John Dory or the Beef Short Rib with carrot butterscotch –cipollini onion , you’ll be sure to feel like you’ve arrived. The climactical evening would not be complete without a toe curling and eye rolling inducing moment.  The Birthday Cake is everything you ever wanted in a dessert (almond torte – cookies and cream – vanilla rum butter). Although you won’t be blowing out any candles with this dessert,   you’ll begin to think that  wishes do sometimes come true!

Food Gone Mobile!

The inaugural Atlanta Street Food Festival was like a church picnic… Food Folks and Fans! The crowds begin to swarm at half past noon and continued well past that! There were people walking around with fans to beat the heat in this gathering of food lovers. There was a caravan of tempting and tasty truck delights ranging from Dr. Sweets to Sweet Water!

Oyster & Crawfish Festival 2012

The temperature was perfect and the food, folks and fun were beautiful.  From the moment you arrived you felt like spring had sprung in Atlanta.  There was music playing, people dancing and plenty of food being devoured by many smiling festival goers. If you missed this year’s Oyster & Crawfish Festival; you deprived yourself of one of the most popular ushering in of spring events  that Atlanta has to offer.

The Rise of an Empire

As you enter the dining area you’re met with a certain southern charm that’s inviting and warm. The hospitality is accomodating and the display of culinary skill by Chef Ryan Smith is addictive. The Dushi Glazed octopus has a seemingly myriad of flavors that created an exciting dish. The sweetness of the GA quince and tangy taste of the shoyu mayo complimented the very tender octopus. Each fork full kept you engaged as if you were on a voyage of mystery and intrigue.

This is no Wisteria Lane...

Although there’s no ‘Lane’ in Wisteria, the drama of the kitchen was ablaze in this quaint neighborhood attraction of food lovers.  The ambiance caresses you in a comfort of knowing that you were about to embark on something special. The exposed beams , dim lighting and selected art pieces that adorned the marigold colored walls added a warmth to this cozy cove.
