Cold Beer – Atlanta, GA

Just named Eater.com’s 2019 Atlanta Restaurant Design of the Year, Cold Beer opened mid-summer on the new Eastside trail of the Beltline.  “On the Beltline” is the key descriptor if you choose to go.  They have an address on Dekalb Avenue, but, on Google maps appear to be on Edgewood.  Until you get to Edgewood […]

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 […]

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, […]

The Argosy – Atlanta, GA

Hanging out in the city on a Saturday, for a change, it was creeping toward dinner time.  I went on line for a couple of lists of pizza places to try and up came a recommendation for the Argosy.  Located in East Atlanta Village, across the street from Elder Tree Pub, we arrived a little […]

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 […]

Richard’s Southern Fried – Atlanta, GA

Recently, someone mentioned a “hot chicken” place had opened in Krog Street Market and I was on it like, well, hot sauce on chicken.  I couldn’t work out the right time to get to Richard’s Southern Fried, which is from chef Todd Richards (executive chef at White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails), for a while, but […]

 Elder Tree Public House – Atlanta, GA

Somewhere along the way, either someone told me or I read somewhere how good the hamburgers were at Elder Tree Public House and I put it on the list.  For the life of me, I can’t remember who told me or where I saw it… When we went to the Earl a couple of months […]

Ticonderoga Club – Atlanta, GA

Our first attempt at dinner at the Ticonderoga Club was the weekend of the Inman Park Festival.  But when we arrived, Krog Street Market had “sold” all their parking places to the festival.  And they wanted $20 to allow us to park there (although KSM merchants could validate your parking and you could get $10 […]

The Earl – Atlanta, GA

On this Saturday, heading across the city, I was craving a burger.  We had not been to the Earl, in close to ten years,.  In fact, we had not been since the WSJ article that proclaimed the glory of Atlanta burgers, crowning the Ghetto Burger at Ann’s Snack Bar the best in the country.  Our […]
