Takorea – Atlanta, GA

Let me preface this post by saying that we love, love, love Hankook Taqueria and that we make our way there, often, when we’re looking for a quick bite on the West Side.  Heading to a matinee at the Fox on this Sunday, we decided to give chef Tomas Lee’s other restaurant, Takorea, a try. […]

Cypress Street Pint & Plate – Atlanta, GA

For a change, lately, I know where this referral came from – a friend said that I really needed to try the Sublime doughnut burger at Cypress Street Pint and Plate, and I wrote it down.  I wrote it down a year (or two) ago.  Today, as we were heading in town for lunch, it […]

Ah Ma Taiwanese Kitchen – Atlanta, Ga

We were dining several months back and asked our waiter where he liked to eat when he wasn’t working.  One of his answers surprised me – Ah Ma’s Taiwanese Kitchen, in Midtown.   I wrote down the name (and hid it in my heart).   I had seen it before, but it had never really registered. […]

The Oceanaire Seafood Room – Atlanta, GA

After a “bust” evening at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival (note: just because the festival is open until 10:00, doesn’t mean the vendors are open past 7:00), we were looking for dinner.   Since we’d already paid (quite handily) for parking, we looked for options within walking distance.  I had eaten at the Oceanaire Seafood Room […]

Chicago’s Nancy’s Pizza – Atlanta, GA

With a meeting down town that ran through my typical lunch hour, by the time that it was over I was building a ferocious hunger.  Some one had recently told me how much they enjoyed the deep dish, Chicago-style pizza at Nancy’s, on Ponce.   I was heading north from downtown on Piedmont and made […]

Einstein’s – Atlanta, GA

Looking for a brunch spot, on Open Table (so we didn’t have to wait) on the way to midtown, you only have so many choices.  I didn’t know that I’ve been to Einstein’s in at least five years and knew that I hadn’t blogged about it, so I grabbed the 10:45 slot and we parked […]

Diner – Atlanta, GA

As we really enjoy Rosebud, I’ve been looking forward to the opening of Ron Eyester’s Diner since I first heard word of it last summer.  With a limited opening on March 5 (serving a limited version of the menu), we decided to stop in the afternoon for an early dinner and see what we thought.  […]
