How Crispy Express – Atlanta

After the grouper sandwich search found at FishMonger, the next sandwich on the list was from How Crispy Express. This former pop up, now in a storefront in Summerhill is just across the patio from Wood’s Chapel. I’ve seen the signage several times but never gone in. I’ve also browsed the menu on-line, several times, […]

Fishmonger – Atlanta, GA

Everywhere I’ve looked for the last several months, there’s been a social media reference to Fishmonger and their blackened grouper sandwich. The mention that put them on “my list” was their inclusion on the 2022 edition of Atlanta Magazine’s best restaurants list. This afternoon we were doing some Christmas shopping in town around lunchtime. I […]

The Companion – Atlanta, GA

Almost 7 years ago, to the day, we visited Steinbeck’s Ale House, in Oakhurst, after hearing about their burger. A couple of weeks ago, I was reading an article about restaurants that had opened in 2020 (and survived Covid) that ought to be visited. And it was there that I read about Steinbeck’s chef, Andy […]

Emmy Squared Pizza – Atlanta, GA

The last time we were in Nashville, one place that popped up on every best burger list was Emmy Squared Pizza.  I thought it a bit odd that a burger from a pizza place was on these “best of” lists, but who would lie about such things on the Internet?  (Actually, they won Nashville’s Battle […]

Warung Indonesian Halal Restaurant – Doraville, GA

This week I found a new restaurant, of all places, in my inbox. This week’s Gravy for Breakfast email, from Southern Foodways Alliance, was all about Warung Indonesian Halal Restaurant. I won’t reiterate the whole article, but this restaurant was born of the pandemic and has included Halal in their name and seen it make […]

Girl Diver – Atlanta, GA

For our anniversary, we were looking for some place new to try when I remembered hearing about Girl Diver, which opened in the Madison Yards development in late 2020. Originally announced as a Vietnamese / Cajun seafood place, it feels more general-Asian-meets-seafood-by-the-pound.  But I had heard they had a killer lobster roll, and I happen […]

Chattahoochee Food Works – Atlanta, GA (Quick Bite)

In these pandemic times, for all of us, the world has changed. We still eat three meals a day, but for the last eighteen months very few of them have been “out”, particularly at a new restaurant. On this fall Saturday, we made an outing to IKEA. Since we were already hazarding the universe at […]

Thank U Chicken – Duluth, GA

Thank U Chicken appeared out of nowhere (to me) on the Garden ‘N Gun Fried Chicken Bucket List.  And it’s just down the road from the office.  A lunch visit was definitely in order.   I went in on a rainy Thursday, and appeared to be the first person in the restaurant.  I knew I […]
