Goldberg’s Deli: Bagels, Brisket, Burgers and More!

Goldberg’s Bagel and Deli has been in Atlanta since 1972. Since that time, they’ve expanded to several locations, including one in the Atlanta Airport. On a recent menu tasting, I was surprised to learn about the many other menu items they offer other than bagels. Have you ever heard of celery soda? I hadn’t either. […]

Emory Point: A Vegetarian’s Delight

The newly opened Emory Point offers a terrific shopping and dining destination for the Emory / Druid Hills folks. Earlier this month, I was able to go on a food tour, sampling many of the diverse restaurants in the complex, and what I found is that it turned out to be a lovely selection of […]

Chequers Relocates to East Cobb

After many years in the Perimeter area, Chequers Steaks and Seafood relocated to East Cobb. Taking over the old Houlihans space, they seem to be a welcome addition for East Cobbers. We were invited to sample the menu at Chequers in its new home. The wines by the glass list didn’t pique my interest very […]

True Food Kitchen Lenox Mall, Atlanta, GA Preview

With eight locations in other parts of the country, True Food Kitchen opened in the super chaotic Lenox Mall last month. The first True Food Kitchen restaurant in Phoenix opened in 2008, with a menu based on the principals of Dr. Andrew Weil’s anti-inflammatory diet. They serve local, sustainable and seasonal foods in a green […]

Buckhead’ s Blue Ridge Grill

Blue Ridge Grill has been a staple in the Atlanta community for years. The restaurant is designed to resemble a luxury cabin with its stacked-stone fireplace, and timbers rescued from an 1890s cotton mill. While you won’t find the trendiest decor or haute new cuisine here, what you will find is consistently well-executed dishes, excellent service […]

You know shows at Dad’s Garage are a riot. But they’re doing something they’ve never done before. They are having a kick-ass comedy show at one of the coolest venues in town, the Goat Farm. And I’m giving away a pair of tickets to this night of mayhem (Friday, July 11)! Dad’s Garage Theatre Company […]

Saltyard Does Brunch

The Buckhead popular spot for Americanized tapas has entered into the Brunch game. Since I’ve really enjoyed dining at Saltyard since it’s opening last year, I was interested to see what their take on Brunch would be. At 12:30 on a Sunday, there was no wait for table, though the restaurant did start to get […]

Chow Bing Opens Buckhead Location

I was first introduced to Gary Lin’s fast casual concept, Chow Bing, last year. His first Chow Bing is located downtown in the Pencil Factory lofts. I instantly loved the light and healthy ingredients used in his foods. More than that, the decor was a minimalist and modern look, as is his newest location, in […]

Meehan’s New Spring / Summer Menu

Meehan’s may be a pub, but their food is anything but pub-like. For starters, the Ahi tuna bites were chopped tuna atop an English cucumber with pickled ginger and feta. And how do you put an interesting twist on hummus? Use a mixture of Edamame and goat cheese for a delicious and unique dip.   […]

Bloody Amazing Bloody Mary Mix

I think it is fitting, I’m writing this the day after judging the ACVB Cocktail Contest.  James, Mara and myself had a blast last night judging the this cocktail competition with Gone with the Wind inspired drinks. Anyway, as I said before the contest began I don’t discriminate when it comes to liquor. And I […]

The Counter Burger New Menu Items: Hippie Salad + Ahi Tuna Burger and More!

If you think you have to travel ITP to get a well-made-non-hormone-injected-grass-fed burger, then you have to try The Counter Burger in Roswell. I’ve been patronizing The Counter for years, and was excited to learn that they’ve got a revamped menu. I started with the Hippie Salad. This comes with quinoa, herbed goat cheese, sprouts, […]

Common Quarter: A Departure from Chains in East Cobb

Common Quarter, open less than a year in East Cobb, is owned and operated by the guys behind Local 3 and Muss and Turner’s. I’ll admit, on my first visit to Common Quarter in Marietta, I was disappointed. There were dishes executed poorly and service issues. I chalked it up to growing pains and vowed […]

La Tagliatella, Atlanta, GA Restaurant Review

La Tagliatella is a European chain that opened its first restaurant on US soil in Midtown Atlanta. Unfortunately, Atlantans said “no thanks” to La Tagliatella and it shuttered several months ago. One other location remains in Atlanta at Emory. Having eaten at La Tagliatella before it shuttered, I can see some of this things that […]
