Cold Beer – Atlanta, GA

Just named Eater.com’s 2019 Atlanta Restaurant Design of the Year, Cold Beer opened mid-summer on the new Eastside trail of the Beltline.  “On the Beltline” is the key descriptor if you choose to go.  They have an address on Dekalb Avenue, but, on Google maps appear to be on Edgewood.  Until you get to Edgewood […]

The Alden – Chamblee, GA

Several months back, maybe a year or more, I read an article about the opening of the Alden, in Chamblee, in Atlanta magazine. From that point, I’ve had it on the short list of places to try. This Tuesday, as I was heading to meet some friends in Buckhead, I was heading down Peachtree and […]

Banshee – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, we were out and wandering about and I was shopping for snap button shirts.  We were in a vintage shop in Decatur and I was discussing the challenge of finding vintage Wranglers and Rustlers with another gentleman (we were both wearing and looking for the shirts).  Turned out, the other shopper was […]

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

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.  […]
