Chama Gaucha

A while back (ahem, in June) a bunch of coworkers and I headed to the newly opened Chama Gaucha in Buckhead for a division celebration. I was still in awe of how close Chama Gaucha was to the venerable institution of Fogo de Chao – you could easily walk the four blocks between the two […]

Thirteen Pies

Sadly Thirteen Pies closed in May of 2016. This place will be sorely missed! The Friday lunch crew and I checked out Thirteen Pies recently, at Anish’s suggestion. Thirteen Pies is known for its ultra-thin crusts, twelve standard pizza pies, and changeable thirteenth pizza flavor. Upon reading the menu, the Spotted Trotter Guanciale Farm Egg […]


Lusca closed over the 2015-2016 New Year’s season. Caveat: This is a lunch review only Emily and I recently visited Lusca for lunch with another coworker, Juan. As soon as I heard about Lusca, it immediately piqued my interest. Lusca is owned by the same people who run Octopus Bar over on the east side […]

Kimball House

Caveat: This review is for Happy Hour only I recently hit up Kimball House for a happy hour (M-F 5-7PM). Oysters are easily one of my favorite foods period. I would put oysters and sushi up there as two of my favorites because of the simplicity of each. When served raw, the quality of ingredients […]

Cafe Agora

Cafe Agora has been a staple in Atlanta for its gyros, late night eats, hole-in-the-wall appeal, and its jubilant owner. Recently, they moved their Buckhead location (right near the intersection of Roswell, Peachtree, and West Paces Ferry) a block away which helped add a lot more seating when compared to their previous place. Having had […]

Chicken And The Egg

In May, I had the pleasure of taking my parents out to Chicken And The Egg in Marietta to celebrate what an awesome mother I have. Chicken And The Egg was named one of the Top 100 Brunch Places by OpenTable in 2013 and on of the Top 100 Restaurants 2012 by Jezebel. Founder and […]

Atlanta Food Truck Park

After years of hearing all about the Food Truck Park off of Howell Mill Road, Adam and I finally went! We went with our dear friends, the Ruby family (4/5th of it anyway) on a great late spring afternoon right before the horrible yellow-green dusting coating of pollen struck for the year. We tried to […]

Fox Bros Bar-B-Q

The Atlanta dining scene doesn’t have a shortage of places that feature one of the following three: burgers, fried chicken, and barbecue. It seems like every day there is a new spot opening up that involves one of those three. Although a little diversity in new openings wouldn’t hurt, I like all three so you […]

Antico Pizza

If you live in Atlanta and haven’t heard of Antico Pizza yet, you likely have been living under a rock. If you haven’t been yet and like pizza (which has to be everyone), it needs to be a high priority. As mentioned in my Gio post, we need more Giovanni Di Palma’s around town. Not […]

King + Duke

Caveat: This is a lunch review. King + Duke is a restaurant that recently opened in Buckhead and is part of a group of restaurants that seem to be elevating the overall quality of food in the area. In an area where steakhouses are in abundance, places like this, Seven Lamps, St. Cecilia, and other […]

1968 at Café 101

Even my getting this place on 11Alive couldn’t keep this place afloat, which i think is really sad because I really liked it. Closed some time in 2015. It’s somehow very fitting that the 80th Buford Highway post on this site would be a restaurant in such a recognizable, iconic structure. If you haven’t read […]

Papi’s Cuban & Caribbean Grill

Papi’s Cuban and Caribbean Grill is a small Atlanta-based chain of (unsurprisingly) cuban and caribbean restaurants. There are to my knowledge five Papi’s locations, and if I had to guess, I’d hazard that this midtown location was the first. I have driven by this corner countless times over the years, but had never stopped by […]


BoccaLupo had been near the top of my list of restaurants, I wanted to try due to its rave reviews since opening. What appealed me was what appeared to be great food at a reasonable price in a casual but trendy atmosphere. After visiting, it qualified as all of those. I personally don’t feel like […]


I am a bit obsessive when researching new restaurants I want to try. I usually rely on Eater and a handful of local blogs to keep abreast on the happenings of the Atlanta food scene. I find enjoyment in studying a menu, thinking about what I want to get, and even googling items I may […]

Chef Liu

In the Pinetree Shopping Center, on the opposite side from Bo Bo Garden is Chef Liu. Starting out in an old Baskin Robbins, that was often described as a shack about ten years ago,* Chef Liu has gotten a lot of attention over the years (and a lot of complaints) and grown enough to move […]

Sweet Auburn Bakery

I’ve been wanting to visit the Sweet Auburn Curb Market for years – since the lovely and knowledgable AsianCajuns clued me in to its awesomeness, and blogged about Sweet Auburn Bakery, among other gems. And last week, I finally went with my fellow work-foodies, Anish and Teck! Anish summed up our Sweet Auburn Curb Market […]
