The Grey – Savannah, GA

Everybody, everywhere, seems to be talking about Mashama Bailey lately (she was on CBS Saturday morning last weekend, for example).   When we were heading to the beach, and going to be in Savannah for lunch, I had an idea where we’d be stopping: The Grey, where Ms Bailey is executive chef.  In what was […]

Mission + Market – Atlanta, GA

Mission + Market was a “double-find”, for me, in the same week: first I saw it appear on the Eater.com Atlanta “hot list” and then, one of my friends, who lives in Buckhead, was telling me about a great new place that had opened in his neighborhood.  When we were making in-town dinner plans with […]

Floataway Cafe – Atlanta, GA

Another spot from the original 2006 food list, Floataway Cafe, was our dining destination tonight. After eleven years, we were finally near the right place at dinner time, so I used the Resy app to make a reservation. We headed toward Emory, then down Zonolite road, into an industrial park. Near the dead end, we […]

Sushi House Hayakawa – Atlanta, GA

Rose’s Luxury – Washington, DC

If you read yesterday’s lament (note: the lament was definitely not about where I ate – which was a phenomenal meal, but about where I didn’t get to eat) about the plumbing problem, that once again, thwarted my attempt to go to Rose’s Luxury, you’ll be pleased to hear that the quest is finally over.  […]

Little Serow – Washington, DC

Every spring, for the last twenty-something years, I head to a conference in Washington, DC.  As with every other adventure I take, there’s always planning around the Omnivore’s Dilemna.  Last year, I tried to get to a restaurant that was new to the scene in 2014 and has been named the second best restaurant in […]

Better Half – Atlanta, GA

Located on 14th Street, just off the Georgia Tech campus, is a relatively new entrant to the Atlanta dining scene – Better Half, which started life as a supper club, Pushstart Kitchen.  Husband and wife Zach and Kristina Meloy began this labor of love at the Goat Farm in 2011 and converted it into a […]
