Wood’s Chapel BBQ – Atlanta, GA

Open for about two weeks when we visited, Wood’s Chapel BBQ, is in a new development on Georgia Avenue, just a couple of blocks from the former Turner Field.  From the team behind the General Muir, Fred’s Meat and Bread and Yalla (they also have partners from West Egg), they are another outpost for whole […]

Ton Ton Ramen and Yakatori – Atlanta, GA

It’s rare that I eat at a place twice before I blog about it. But I also rarely eat at a new place twice in a five day span.  As one of the newest spots to open in Ponce City Market, I’ve been waiting for Ton Ton Ramen and Yakatori to open ever since I […]

Jia – Atlanta, GA

From Dahe Yang and chef Jiguo Jiang of Tasty China Jia opened in Ponce City Market last September.   Along with Gu’s Dumplings (which has a much smaller menu – Jia’s refers to its own as a one hundred item menu), these may be the first Szechuan restaurants downtown.   In one of the articles […]

The Mercury – Atlanta, GA – CLOSED

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED. I had seen a note on Eater Atlanta earlier this week noting that the Mercury had opened for lunch service in the last couple of weeks.  From the team behind Decatur’s Pinewood Tippling Room, the Mercury (with a decor resembling the early 60s) is on the second floor of Ponce City […]

Minero – Atlanta, GA

I didn’t realize until earlier this week that Minero was Sean Brock’s restaurant.   I’m a huge fan of his cooking and thought that a meal at this outpost of his Charleston Mexican restaurant would be a great lunch to start the new year.   We met our daughter and son-in-law at Ponce City Market […]

Linton’s Cafe in the Park – Atlanta, GA

  I rarely post anything about a “bad” meal – if I don’t say anything after eating at a place, it’s because I enjoyed nothing about the meal. Bad service, on the other hand, needs to be talked about.   Tonight we tried to have dinner at Linton’s in the Park, but the front of […]

Brezza Cucina – Atlanta, GA

Another day, another trip to Ponce City Market.  We were heading in town to meet someone passing through and looking for a place to grab lunch around 11:30.  PCM seemed like a good choice, as there are at least five places I still want to try.  My suggestion of fish was shot down, as it […]

Arepa Mia – Atlanta, GA

Today, we met the newliest-weds of our kids for a meal at Arepa Mia, in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market (thanks, Roger for the info to allow the correction of the name.  Note: If you enjoy this blog, you ought to check out Roger’s, Friday Date Night).  The kids had been to the Decatur location […]

Staplehouse – Atlanta, GA

To preface this post: I’ve followed this story for years and I recap part of that story below.  It has made for a long post, so stick with me.  But if you don’t want to read it all, I’ll cut to the chase – it’s really good.  You should go.   Sometimes you wait a while for […]

Hop’s Chicken – Atlanta, GA

Finally, Ponce City Market is (sort of / mostly) open.   At least, some of the food places and stores are.  Over last weekend our daughter sent us a text from H&F Burger, along with a survey of what was open.  So when Friday night rolled around and we were headed to dinner with another […]
