Wood’s Chapel BBQ – Atlanta, GA

Open for about two weeks when we visited, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, is in a new development on Georgia Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the former Turner Field.  From the team behind the General Muir, Fred’s Meat and Bread and Yalla (they also have partners from West Egg), they are another outpost for whole […]

El Tesoro – Atlanta, GA

A couple of weeks ago, I heard about the tacos and tortillas at El Tesoro and planned on making a trip.  Today, with a journey to Monroe in mind, we stopped by for breakfast.  Located on Arkwright Place, just parallel to Memorial Drive and just east of Moreland, we arrived toward the end of breakfast […]

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 […]

Gusto! – Atlanta, GA

Hattie B’s – Atlanta, GA

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I love hot chicken. If you haven’t – I do love hot chicken. We’ve been (not so) patiently waiting for Hattie B’s to open for months – along, apparently, with a lot of other Atlantans.  Earlier this month, the wait ended. In fact, […]

Qing Mu Noodle Company – Atlanta, GA

As we were heading towards the heart of Buckhead, I was, as always, looking for a new place to eat.  When we reached our shopping destination, I mentioned a couple of spots to my beloved and she was over-thrilled by none of them.  I made the decision, and headed back down West Paces Ferry to […]
