Illegal Food – Atlanta, GA

We had a meal (or three or four) at Illegal Food back in 2014 and 2015 when they were a popup kitchen at Joystick, but we had not been to their actual location.  Today, when we were in town on a Saturday without plans, I decided it would be “big” burgers for lunch. Off to […]

Jim’s Smokin Que – Blairsville, GA

We’re coming to you today near the end of the Six Gap trail, in Blairsville, with lunch at Jim’s Smokin Que.  This spot comes to us courtesy of a Trip Advisor ranking of barbecue joints from a couple of years back, in which they ranked fairly highly, nationally.  Being on Six Gap trail, there were […]

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.  […]

Located in a strip center, next […]

Bread & Butterfly – Atlanta, GA

I had been intending on trying Bread & Butterfly for quite a while – ever since they popped onto my radar with Atlanta magazine’s best restaurants of 2016 early last year, in fact.  A European-style bistro and cafe, it is from chef Billy Allin (of Cakes & Ale), and located in the fairly new Inman […]

Sushi Huku 

As I was heading to meet some folks in Vinings, I went back to the well of the original list, once again, and looked at the options.  I found that Sushi Huku was on the list and on the way.  While it has a Sandy Springs address, it is right there at Akers Mill and Powers Ferry […]

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 […]
