Gusto! – Atlanta, GA

One Saturday afternoon, we headed downtown to meet our daughter and her husband for lunch. They suggested Gusto!, on Piedmont (they have several locations around town). They had been to the Decatur location and described it to us as “like Chipotle”, but not all Mexican. (We use the “like Chipotle” to reference things, a lot, […]

Doe’s Eat Place – Greenville, MS

Walking in the screened front door of Doe’s Eat Place, we immediately assumed we had made a mistake – we were standing in the kitchen, right next to the grill.  We asked and they waved us through to the second kitchen – where the salads, toast and fries were made – and a lady asked […]

In town […]

Yum’s II – Washington, DC

Tonight’s first dinner comes to you courtesy of an article from the July 2011 issue Travel and Leisure, called “The United States of Deliciousness”.  In it, the chef at Beef & Barley raved about the Philly cheesesteak at Yum’s II.  He said it was the best cheesesteak, outside of Philly.  Challenge accepted. In town for […]
