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

Another place that has been on the list for a decade is Sushi House Hayakawa.  When it first appeared on my radar, I was not nearly as adventurous an eater as I’ve evolved into.  As a result, whenever I was looking for a place to go, it kept moving toward the bottom of the list.  […]

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

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 […]

10 Degrees South

A Friday night date-night visit to another place that’s been on “the list” for more than 10 years, 10 Degrees South.  Advertising itself as Atlanta’s only fine dining South African restaurant, we made an early reservation and arrived to a restaurant which was being filled, literally, from the left.   According to our extremely helpful […]

Viande Rouge – Duluth, GA

I was heading into Atlanta from the office one evening for a concert and looking for a place to eat in between the two.  I have had Viande Rouge Steakhouse on my list for a while, but it’s a long haul back to Duluth for dinner, so I never seemed to make it.  Tonight, eating […]
