Floataway Cafe – Atlanta, GA

Another spot from the original 2006 food list, Floataway Cafe, was our dining destination tonight. After eleven years, we were finally near the right place at dinner time, so I used the Resy app to make a reservation. We headed toward Emory, then down Zonolite road, into an industrial park. Near the dead end, we […]

Waikikie Hawaiian Barbecue – Atlanta, GA

Several times over the last six or eight months, as I worked my way from North Druid Hills toward Virginia-Highlands, I passed by Waikikie Hawaiian Barbecue and thought to myself, “I need to try that.”  But I didn’t ever get around to it.  So on this Sunday afternoon, as we were roaming around and dinner […]

Ink & Elm – Decatur, GA – CLOSED
