Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken and Oysters – Atlanta, GA

I’ve been thinking about Mary Hoopa’s House of Fried Chicken & Oysters, for about three months.  Maybe longer.  I knew it was coming, as I’m a fan of Chef Robert Phalen and his One Eared Stag, and, some time last year, I heard that he was opening a fried chicken place, serving his “once-a-week” fried […]

K & K Soul Food – Atlanta, GA

Today’s lunch is at another spot sent to me from the pages of Garden N Gun – K&K Soul Food.  (It’s like these pages speak to me – “if we fry it, you will come.”)  K & K has been in business for fifty years, and I’ve been seeing it on one version of my […]

LT’s Wings & Other Things – Atlanta, GA

Another find from Garden & Gun’s Fried Chicken Bucket List, LT’s Wings and Other Things was hailed as staying “busy, with lines out the door.”  We arrived around 6:00 on a Saturday and seemed to hit at a good time – there was only one person waiting for food and a couple who came in […]

Das BBQ

Sometimes, it feels like a place is just trying too hard – that’s my summary for this visit . Today, we headed to Das BBQ, after seeing it featured in Atlanta Eats and then getting a confirming positive vote from a lunch mate, yesterday.  In all the pre-opening press, owner Stephen Franklin talks about wanting […]

Brush Sushi Izakaya – Decatur, GA

Brush Sushi Izakaya has been on my radar for several months, but the opportunity hasn’t presented itself.  Everyone raves about their omakase service (this translates to “I’ll leave it up to you”, in Japanese and it’s a chef’s choice of sushi and ingredients).  But that much raw seafood is  a bit of a stretch for […]

Greater Good BBQ – Atlanta, GA

The Greater Good wasn’t our original lunch destination.  Working off my original list, we were heading toward Queen of Sheba, an Ethiopian spot that’s been on my list for almost 12 years.  I googled the address and the hours (not wanting to show up some place that was only open for dinner) and was surprised […]

B’s Cracklin’Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, I heard that someone was smoking whole hog barbecue in northwest Atlanta.  I made a mental note and figured that I would hear more about it and get there soon enough. Two months passed by when I saw an online article from Atlanta magazine about pitmaster Bryan Furman, at B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue, […]
