Spring rolls w/ shrimp, pork herbs and noodles!

Le Fat – Quality Vietnamese on the Westside

I used to drive to Buford Hwy for quality Vietnamese, which, depending on traffic, could be quite a chore. Thanks to Guy Wong and the team at Le Fat, this is no longer necessary upon every craving! The restaurant itself is beautiful and transports its guests to a colonial era Vietnam, complete with a take…

Steak salad...medium rare of course!

Situated at the corner of North Fulton and Buckhead Ave, American Food & Beverage is serving up eclectic american southern fare utilizing fresh ingredients from local farmers…as…

2015 Atlanta Food & Wine Festival

The 2015 Atlanta Food and Wine Festival wrapped up another successful run last Sunday, and with the exception of the monsoon on Sunday, it was a glowing success. The event does a great job of bringing a diverse group of chefs and culinary talent from across the southeast to educate and entertain its patrons. This…

Close up of the duck pate; I could have eaten a quart of this.

Lunch Time at Cockentrice!

Do you like mortadella, culatello, pate, and terrine; how about some awesome cheeses? If so, the slimmed down lunch menu at Cockentrice is the spot for you! Cockentrice opened for lunch a few weeks back, (mid April) and as long as you like bahn mi and charcuterie then you will have a blast…because as of last…

Restaurant Eugene – Still the Best Game in Town

For fine dining in Atlanta there’s Restaurant Eugene, and then there’s everything else…which is less than three spots. Chef Linton Hopkins has maintained the highest level of service, food quality and ambiance at this quaint Buckhead location for over 10 years, and they continue to stay relevant and receive national recognition. When people ask for…

Classic Parisian steak tatare, mad w/ Kobe beef

Gun Show – Still Compelling

As I recently proclaimed via Twitter, Gun Show is still the most exciting restaurant in Atlanta. I eat out a lot; both in Atlanta and on the road, and few, if any, restaurants have the entire package that Gunshow brings to the table. The atmosphere, the diversity of the food, the theater of dim sum…

Shan City Shrimp

Old Standbys – Tasty China

As most people who are frequent readers of this site know, I absolutely love Tasty China and am really excited to see what they do at Ponce City Market. A lot of people ask me what to order, and I usually respond with about ten dishes. Obviously if you have a large group this works,…

Ikura - beautiful and bursting with flavor; like pop rocks for adults!

“Cheap” High Quality Sushi? Sushi Huku

Is this even possible? Most cheap sushi is low quality and usually consists of salmon, crab with K, tuna and maybe an average tamago. Once you enter the realm of an omakse meal (chef’s choice of various items including some cooked) the notion of affordability quickly flies out the window. My friends, I have found…

Traditional pad Thai w/ grass fed beef

L’Thai Organic Cuisine & Wine Bar…

The name alone probably confuses most would be patrons, and judging by the sparse crowds at the West Village location (Smyrna), it does. I have been to this location (they have another in Tucker) at least ten times over the past several years, and every time, lunch or dinner, it’s dead…which is sad because the…
