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 […]

Don Antonio by Starita

I am SO SAD that thing joint closed, in the middle of 2015. :'( Don Antonio is a new pizza spot that recently opened in Buckhead. This is the second location they have opened with the first being in New York. The New York location has received a ton of critical acclaim and positive press […]

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 […]

Local Three Kitchen & Bar

Caveat: This review is only for the brunch at Local Three. Local Three’s philosophy per their website is “People Matter Most, Local Is Priority, Seasonal Makes Sense, Authenticity Rules, Quality Governs, Delicious Trumps, Pretense Stinks, Comfort Feels Good, Appreciation Tastes Better, Prudence Sustains It All.” These are all great points to live by and I […]

Cakes & Ale

Decatur is one of my favorite areas in Atlanta and one I don’t visit as much as I should. Decatur always seems to put forth not only well-thought-out food but drinks as well in a laid-back environment which is something I think everyone appreciates. On this particular evening, I was able to visit Taco Mac […]

Lure

Lure is part of the Fifth Group restaurant group. Ecco is the only other restaurant of theirs I have been able to try but it definitely stands as one of my favorite restaurants in town. My brother-in-law was in town via work and was staying at the Loews in Midtown. In researching places that were […]

BoccaLupo

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 […]

Chops

There are a lot of high-end steakhouses in the Buckhead area, it is called Steak Alley for a reason. Steakhouses to me are good for the purpose they serve, catering to client type dinners and providing a menu where the customer knows what to expect and there aren’t any surprises. Most people can walk into […]

Aria

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 […]

Woodfire Grill

Woodfire Grill has been at the top of my Atlanta fine dining hit-list for a long time, so I was very pleased to finally visit. Woodfire’s claim to fame came largely from its former chef, Kevin Gillespie and the seasonal, local, organic, farm-to-table, slow food style. Kevin Gillespie has since left, but word on the […]

KR SteakBar

I ate at the KR SteakBar with a colleague recently. The SteakBar has only been open since February, and it was appealing to try another Kevin Rathbun restaurant. We tried a variety of dishes (this being a small plate place), steered clear of alcohol, and still managed a $160 bill. Here’s what we had: The […]
