Viande Rouge – Duluth, GA

I was heading into Atlanta from the office one evening for a concert and looking for a place to eat in between the two.  I have had Viande Rouge Steakhouse on my list for a while, but it’s a long haul back to Duluth for dinner, so I never seemed to make it.  Tonight, eating […]

Uncle Jack’s Meat House – Duluth, GA

In a space that most recently was Cotton and Corn, at the office, we’ve been watching the anticipated opening of Uncle Jack’s Meat House.  We eat next door (technically next door to next door), at Vinny’s, frequently and we heard, all summer, that they were opening in a couple of weeks.  This is the first […]

Yami Japan – Lawrenceville, GA

While I’m always on the hunt for some place new, today I was originally heading to Kingston 30, one of the Jamaican restaurants near the office.  But then I saw Yami Japan at the other end of the strip mall.  The $6.99 hibachi lunch special lured me in.  It’s a very simple setup, with the […]

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – Duluth, GA

Armando’s Caribe – Duluth, GA

So one day I’m sitting in the office and my boss walks in and says, “have you tried that new Cuban place in Duluth?” My eyes lit up like a kid at Christmas.  He took that as a no.  So a week later, we met for lunch at Armando’s Caribe Grill.  The name didn’t scream […]

Talay Thai Cuisine – Duluth, GA

Talay Thai Cuisine has become part of our regular lunch time rotation.  Located in a strip mall, at the corner of Satellite Boulevard and Old Peachtree Road, they’re in a location that is about to get a BP next door.  That will make an already challenging parking situation even more complicated.  One of the guys […]

Mizumi Ramen – Duluth, GA

I spend a lot of time trying to figure out where to eat.  You know how it goes – there are a certain number of places that are in “the rotation” around your office or home, but sometimes you want something different than the usual.  That’s what led me to Mizumi Ramen.  I had seen […]
