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

Two months passed by when I saw an online article from Atlanta magazine about pitmaster Bryan Furman, at B’s Cracklin’ Barbecue, […]

Takorea – Atlanta, GA

Let me preface this post by saying that we love, love, love Hankook Taqueria and that we make our way there, often, when we’re looking for a quick bite on the West Side.  Heading to a matinee at the Fox on this Sunday, we decided to give chef Tomas Lee’s other restaurant, Takorea, a try. […]

Hattie Marie’s – College Park, GA

After roaming around with my beloved on a Friday morning, we stopped by her sister’s house, as we were getting ready for lunch.  She mentioned that a new barbecue place had opened in downtown College Park last week.  We happened to be in the area around lunch time today.  Coincidence?  I think not.  Off we […]

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 […]
