JCT Kitchen

Recently, some present- and ex-coworkers and I got together and went to JCT Kitchen for a Friday lunch. I was very excited, since I hadn’t been to JCT in at least seven years, and I remembered that meal only dimly, but very fondly. We had to change the time of our reservation at the last-minute […]

Muss & Turner’s

A few weeks back after spending some time co-working, Mary and I scooted up to Muss & Turner’s for a lunch with some friends and former coworkers of hers. Founded and run by the same folks as Local Three Kitchen & Bar, Muss & Turner’s is a deli-style restaurant first opened as a gourmet grocery […]


I was recently invited to Alon’s, a bakery and market in Dunwoody, as part of an Atlanta Food Bloggers Society dinner. This location in Perimeter is one of two they have, the other being in the Virginia Highlands. I usually don’t hit up the Perimeter area for food much and don’t know of many destination […]

Folk Art

Folk Art is a relatively new restaurant in Atlanta that opened about a year ago in the Inman Park area. It’s in an area I would like to get to more often but checking traffic around that area usually makes me think otherwise. On this particular occasion, I visited for brunch on Sunday so I […]

Smoke Ring

This is one of the rare spots that both Emily and Anish have reviewed separately. To see Emily’s review, go here. Smoke Ring is one of many barbecue joints that have opened up recently in the Atlanta area. Although I don’t think we necessarily need anymore barbecue joints, the location of this one is an […]

First Impressions: True Food Kitchen

Shortly before opening day, Adam and I had the pleasure of dining at Lenox Square’s True Food Kitchen during their pre-opening event. True Food is an interesting concept opening right next door to the recently-opened Zinburger, and a few doors down from yet another Cheesecake Factory. Parking can be challenging if you are coming just […]

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 […]

Vine & Tap

I was recently invited to attend Vine & Tap as part of an Association of Food Bloggers dinner event. Vine & Tap opened in Buckhead early this year in the same strip as Roaster’s & Sushi Kiku off on Lenox road. Ian Mendelsohn and his wife Susan opened up this wine bar earlier this year […]

Baldino’s Giant Jersey Subs

Next on our journey up Buford Highway was Baldino’s Giant Jersey Subs. Founded in 1975, this small regional chain has 19 locations, including seven in North Carolina and one in Jacksonville, Florida. After such a consistently awesome onslaught of exceptional ethnic cuisine, Baldino’s seemed like it was going to be a bit boring, truth be […]

Horseradish Grill

Emily, Adam, and I recently visited Horseradish Grill as part of an Atlanta Food Bloggers Society event. The restaurant is located right near Chastain Park in Atlanta. This was the first time each of us had visited Horseradish Grill, and the word I would use to describe it is quaint. What I love about this […]

Seven Lamps

Seven Lamps is a restaurant that opened fairly recently in Buckhead that serves the ever popular and growing “craft food” category. Per the website, the name is derived from “the seven principles of architecture: sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life, memory and obedience… Co-owner and Executive Chef Drew Van Leuvan recognized that these important principles are […]

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 […]

Buford Highway Farmers Market

This week Adam and I finally got to dine at the Buford Highway Farmers Market food court. We’ve been to the Buford Highway Farmers Market many times, as we regularly shop there, but we’d never eaten anything other than samples before. On a Sunday afternoon, we dropped by to get acquainted with the food court/cafeteria […]

Mary Mac’s Tea Room

Outside of maybe burgers, fried chicken is probably the single most discussed food item in the Atlanta dining scene. Even when guests come to visit, the question is always “where can I find the best fried chicken?”. Similar to going to Memphis or North Carolina and asking “where you can find the best BBQ?”, it […]

The Greater Good Barbecue

Greater Good Barbecue joins what seems like an influx of BBQ joints ITP as of late. Located near Fellini’s and La Fonda on Roswell, it is in the building next door that has had its fair share of turnover. I remember its location as a battery store, fro-yo spot, and most recently a hot dog […]

J Buffalo Wings

Started by Chung Man Ji in 1996 at this very location on Buford Highway, along the street side of Northeast Plaza, J Buffalo Wings has been growing ever since and now 16 locations. I believe that this location became something else for a while, and has only recently returned to being a J Buffalo Wings. […]

Stillhouse Craft Burgers & Moonshine

Stillhouse closed over the 2015-2016 New Year’s holiday. A little while back I met a friend over drinks and burgers a Stillhouse. I tried to come to Stillhouse for lunch a few months back, but unfortunately they weren’t open for lunch quite yet. As of this writing, I don’t believe they are yet, but they […]
