June & July Gavage

July 22, 2014

Hey there. I took these photos. If you didn’t see them on my Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Tinder page, well then, you are in luck. Ever eaten an entire platter of chicken hearts? You can do so at Yet Tuh on Buford Highway. That place is neat. We didn’t order exceptionally well, and they missed one of our […]

Lusca

June 25, 2014

Lusca has been open roughly two months now, and though I had been eagerly anticipating this opening from Octopus Bar’s Angus Brown and Nhan Le, it was just this week I made my first visit. I’ve only made it into Octopus Bar a handful of times, as it’s across town and doesn’t open until 10PM, but I really […]

Moonie’s Texas BBQ Revisit

June 19, 2014

This past weekend I revisited Moonie’s Texas BBQ in Flowery Branch. Twice. We were on our way to spend some time with family in Highlands, NC like proper Atlantans (spoken in three syllables) do in the summer, when I realized we would pass the Flowery Branch exit on 985, and Moonie’s is just a short mile off […]

Atlanta Food & Wine 2014

June 2, 2014

As mentioned, I attended the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival on Saturday, for just enough time to hit a few classes and the tasting tents for about an hour. My participation was less than years past, in part because I’m busy with family and we bought a new home on Friday. If all goes well we […]

Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Upcoming

May 22, 2014

This year’s iteration of the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (guide here - tasting tent talent here) begins a week from today. Various ticket packages are still available. I will admit that I’m on a media pass for Saturday (denied the three day pass, my Q rating is dropping), but I’ve paid in the past and it’s worth it. […]

Huku/Craft Izakaya

May 20, 2014

It hasn’t been in my budget lately, but the last month I’ve visited Sushi Huku twice for some raw fish fun. Huku may not have the sexiness and flash of Umi, the hot sushi restaurant right now, but Chef Jey Oh is a friend, and Huku has the “regular” vibe and personal, casual attention I enjoy. Huku […]

King & Duke Lunch

May 12, 2014

I don’t hear a lot of chatter about King & Duke amongst the food cognoscenti, but I’m three for three on my visits. Another in the trendy Ford Fry collection, the carefully designed restaurant has a long list of dishes I find desirable, most touched by smoke and fire from the open hearth, which elicits stares by everyone (myself […]

Batavia

May 8, 2014

Last year Brad from Creative Loafing wrote an article about Batavia on Shallowford off Buford Highway, in the old space that used to be Delicious Kabob. When he suggested it for a recent lunch meet-up to swap blogger gossip, I didn’t know what to expect, but it’s turned out to be a destination I’ve constantly craved since. The space […]
