Revival – Decatur, GA

We had been excitedly anticipating the open of Kevin Gillespie’s Revival for months, shortly after we first heard of its opening.  About three weeks back, our youngest sent me a text that they were opening that week and we set a date and made reservations.  Located in a home from the early 1900s, on a […]

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 […]

Revolution Doughnuts & Coffee – Decatur, GA

Revolution Doughnuts and Coffee just turned two on National Doughnut Day, according to the “Happy Second Birthday to Us” banner in the restaurant, and we just made it there?  Seriously?  One of my buddies has been talking about them for months.  Maybe more than a year, but we never seemed to be in Decatur before […]

Sun In My Belly – Decatur, GA

Looking for a dinner choice for Friday night, it really boiled down to the confluence of the answers to two questions: 1) What sounds good?; and 2) Where can we get a reservation?  When I saw Sun In My Belly appear as a choice on OpenTable, I clicked on the first time slot that we […]
