E.A.T in the A.T.L

If you have been reading this blog for a little while, you may have picked up on a little theme…

i.love.food.

making & baking new dishes and eyeing & trying new restaurants have become  full fledged passions (as evidenced by my growing pinterest boards).

I am more than obliged to do the field research and I love when I get to bring visitors along for the ride. Especially when you pick up a few of these on a Saturday afternoon, you know, the usual…

This weekend, Stephanie and I had the pleasure of welcoming our friend Colleen, visiting from Chicago, and showing her around our new city. The weekend included a few different restaurants and some very southern dishes.

Weekend recap:

  • The Buckhead Diner Standouts at our table included the Warm Maytag Bleu Cheese Potato Chips (coming from someone who does not like bleu cheese) and the “Famous” Veal and Wild Mushroom Meatloaf.

  • Alon’s Bakery New to both Colleen and Stephanie. I ordered my go-to Tuscany (add cucumbers) on wheat, yum.

  • SweetWater Brewery We were able to sip on a few of there most popular brews and enjoy some January sunshine (yes, that is right…January sunshine). For 10$ you walk away with a new pint glass and a great afternoon with friends.
  • Flying Biscuit No weekend is complete without a Sunday brunch and I’ve come to learn that Sunday brunch just isn’t complete without a flying biscuit (and a bowl of creamy dreamy grits).

And if you thought that all of that delicious food wasn’t indulgent enough…

We spent Sunday afternoon in at a foot massage parlor and enjoyed a blissful hour of foot, leg, head and neck massage & reflexology for a whopping $35. With that price tag (and the rewards card I received) I think I’ll make a few excuses to head back.

 

Have a great start to the week!
