Marietta Fish Market – Marietta, GA

We’ve eaten at other of the restaurants in the Tselios family of restaurants (Pasta Bella – I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about that place – and Casa Grande), but we have missed the three in Marietta.   Tonight, we knocked one of those off the list with Marietta Fish Market.  We were heading back […]

The Oceanaire Seafood Room – Atlanta, GA

After a “bust” evening at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival (note: just because the festival is open until 10:00, doesn’t mean the vendors are open past 7:00), we were looking for dinner.   Since we’d already paid (quite handily) for parking, we looked for options within walking distance.  I had eaten at the Oceanaire Seafood Room […]

Beetlecat – Atlanta, GA

  A couple of Fridays back, I saw a tweet from Belle Vivere of the lobster roll from Beetlecat and determined that we needed to get there soon.  Seeing that they opened at 3:00 on Saturday, I figured we could wrap up an afternoon of in-town errands with a kind-of-early dinner, and we arrived around 5:30. […]

Dooky Chase’s Restaurant – New Orleans, LA

In conversation with several of the folks I work with, I had mentioned that we were going to Willie Mae’s for lunch on Friday.  Several said “if you’re going to Willie Mae’s for chicken, you really need to go to Dooky Chases’s Restaurant“.  So after roaming around several of the suburbs on a shopping expedition, […]

Fiola Mare – Washington, DC

On this trip to DC, I did a little exploring and determined, in advance, where I could make a reservation for dinner that was on one of my lists.  I knew that the top spot on my “to-do” list did not take reservations (Rose’s Luxury), so I looked at other choices.  From the Southern Living […]

Lure – Atlanta, GA

On this Saturday we were looking for some place new for lunch and made our choice based on a combination of availability of reservations and OpenTable ratings.  Lure was in the first 10, rating-wise, and had a spot available, so it was decided.  We arrived around 1:30 to find the valet missing.  We waited a […]

Red Crawfish – Lawrenceville, GA

Recently, when I went to Sugarloaf Mills, I saw that a new place had opened in the space formerly occupied by a defunct Mexican restaurant,  Red Crawfish.  I tried it back in early December, for the first time, and have returned several times since with some co-workers.  Interestingly, it is the second Vietnamese-owned Cajun restaurant […]
