Located on 14th Street, just off the Georgia Tech campus, is a relatively new entrant to the Atlanta dining scene – Better Half, which started life as a supper club, Pushstart Kitchen.  Husband and wife Zach and Kristina Meloy began this labor of love at the Goat Farm in 2011 and converted it into a […]

A Friday night date-night visit to another place that’s been on “the list” for more than 10 years, 10 Degrees South.  Advertising itself as Atlanta’s only fine dining South African restaurant, we made an early reservation and arrived to a restaurant which was being filled, literally, from the left.   According to our extremely helpful […]
