Anna’s BBQ – Atlanta, GA

About mid way through “Barbecue Week”, there was an article on – Atlanta about where the local chefs like to eat barbecue.  I love these articles as they always point out some place that I didn’t have on my radar.  This time, the blip was Anna’s BBQ, in Kirkwood.  A couple of the chefs […]

Kavarna Coffee – Decatur, GA

So…. after the really bland burger, my beloved asked me how close we were to “that place with the house-made pumpkin spice latte”.   That phrase equates to Kavarna Coffee.  Earlier in the month, when we ate at Steinbeck’s, the server had told us how good the pumpkin spice latte was across the street.  We went […]

Steinbeck’s Ale House – Decatur, GA

We’ve been working our way through Atlanta Magazine’s list of the twenty best burgers, on and off, since it was published in January.   Tonight, we’re knocking off one of our two remaining places in the top ten, Steinbeck’s Ale House in Oakhurst, tonight.   This selection was based on a combination of location and […]

Revival – Decatur, GA

Pinewood Tippling Room – Decatur, GA

I had read about Pinewood Tippling Room when it opened in 2012, in the boom of cocktail bars that opened that summer.  What is a “tippling room”, you may ask?  To tipple is “to drink (liquor) especially continuously in small amounts” – making this a place to drink, slowly.  So, it’s  a bar.  A bar […]

Chai Pani – Decatur, GA

Every since the visits to Bojhanic and Cardamom Hill, I knew that the next time that we went out for Indian, Chai Pani would be the place.  Originally opening in Asheville in 2009 (thinking back three or four years, I remember having Chai Pani recommended to me by a vegetarian friend of mine), a couple […]

Kimball House – Decatur, GA

Kimball House had been on my short list for many months before Southern Living named it the best new restaurant in the South in August of 2014.  Since they don’t take reservations, I knew that getting a table would be even more of a challenge after the article came out.  For our anniversary, as a […]
