The Porch – St Simons Island, GA

We’ve been going to Saint Simon’s Island since our kids were small. Now that they’re adults, with families of their own, we’ve started going back – renting a house for Labor Day weekend.  One of the big questions is always, “what are we going to do for dinner?”  There are a couple of regular haunts, […]

The Grey – Savannah, GA

Everybody, everywhere, seems to be talking about Mashama Bailey lately (she was on CBS Saturday morning last weekend, for example).   When we were heading to the beach, and going to be in Savannah for lunch, I had an idea where we’d be stopping: The Grey, where Ms Bailey is executive chef.  In what was […]

Mission + Market – Atlanta, GA

Mission + Market was a “double-find”, for me, in the same week: first I saw it appear on the Eater.com Atlanta “hot list” and then, one of my friends, who lives in Buckhead, was telling me about a great new place that had opened in his neighborhood.  When we were making in-town dinner plans with […]

Hattie B’s – Atlanta, GA

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that I love hot chicken. If you haven’t – I do love hot chicken. We’ve been (not so) patiently waiting for Hattie B’s to open for months – along, apparently, with a lot of other Atlantans.  Earlier this month, the wait ended. In fact, […]

Charlie Joseph’s – LaGrange, GA

Heading down to the Middle East (of Alabama), we were rolling down I-85 and realized that we were running out of choices, rapidly, for lunch (if we wanted to eat soon) when I remembered seeing a sign about chili dogs last time we went to Pine Mountain.  Nearing 185, I saw the sign for Charlie […]

Qing Mu Noodle Company – Atlanta, GA

As we were heading towards the heart of Buckhead, I was, as always, looking for a new place to eat.  When we reached our shopping destination, I mentioned a couple of spots to my beloved and she was over-thrilled by none of them.  I made the decision, and headed back down West Paces Ferry to […]

Mix’d Up Burgers – Atlanta, GA

Coming back from a few days out of town, we were confronted with “the lunch question”.  Instead of being met with a quizzical look when I asked, there was a definitive response – “How about that place with the great bean burger, that’s drive through only?”  I knew she was talking about Mix’d Up Burgers […]

Lan Zhou Ramen – Chamblee, GA

Back in October, I was heading down Buford Highway, looking for dinner, when I put “ramen” in Google maps. It led me to Lan Zhou Ramen.  Lan Zhou shares a parking lot with both Chef Liu and Supermercado Chicago (home of fantastic tamales at the counter in the back – and the best fresh masa […]

The Argosy – Atlanta, GA

Hanging out in the city on a Saturday, for a change, it was creeping toward dinner time.  I went on line for a couple of lists of pizza places to try and up came a recommendation for the Argosy.  Located in East Atlanta Village, across the street from Elder Tree Pub, we arrived a little […]

Takorea – Dunwoody, GA

Here’s a report from a recent visit to the Dunwoody location of Takorea, which is located in the middle of the Kroger parking lot at Chamblee-Tucker and 285.  I’ve eaten there several times over the last two years, most recently when our daughter had her daughter at Northside – and we’d come to visit, with […]
