Bocado – Atlanta, GA

More than six years after our first visit to Bocado, I finally return with the specific purpose of blogging about it.  Located at the corner of Howell Mill and Marietta Street, this is the first place that I remember the valet taking my car and asking me to move so he could back into a parking […]

Ticonderoga Club – Atlanta, GA

Our first attempt at dinner at the Ticonderoga Club was the weekend of the Inman Park Festival.  But when we arrived, Krog Street Market had “sold” all their parking places to the festival.  And they wanted $20 to allow us to park there (although KSM merchants could validate your parking and you could get $10 […]

Arnold’s Country Kitchen – Nashville, TN

Heading to Nashville for a day of meandering and food, we were heading to my favorite “guitar store” on the planet, Carter Vintage Guitar.  I have had Arnold’s Country Kitchen on my list for several years, since they appeared in Garden-N’-Gun’s “50 Best Southern Foods” in the fall of 2011, and was surprised to find […]

Trowbridge’s Ice Cream and Sandwich Bar – Florence, AL

Today was road trip Saturday, so we set out on the three and a half-hour drive northeast to Florence / Muscle Shoals.   I had a few stops in mind, and we arrived at the first around 10:20 Central time.  But since we had arisen prior to 7:00 Eastern, this was a perfectly acceptable time […]

Kavarna Coffee – Decatur, GA

So…. after the really bland burger, my beloved asked me how close we were to “that place with the house-made pumpkin spice latte”.   That phrase equates to Kavarna Coffee.  Earlier in the month, when we ate at Steinbeck’s, the server had told us how good the pumpkin spice latte was across the street.  We went […]
