this week in Atlanta
we hit Wisteria on Highland. Boy was that good!
Seared Sea Scallops over braised pork belly and radicchio with a bourbon molasses reduction. 3 or 4 nice sized scallops.
A squash tart.
Molasses-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin over sweet potato souffle topped with a vidalia onion, apple, and walnut relish. Wow was this great and in particular not overdone in any way.
North Atlantic Skate Wing pan-seared with lemon brown butter and served over stone-ground corn grits and roasted asparagus spears.
Solid wine list. Excellent service, though it took a while for us to be seated, not their fault really.
Peach cobbler, Warm Georgia Rustic Apple Pie. Excellent cappuccino.
It's a bit loud in there, but next time I'm in Atlanta, I'd go back. $82pp w/3 good bottles.
Enoteca on 710 Peachtree St near the Fox. We've been here before and it never disappoints. Great wine list also. Unfortunately, we took such advantage of the wine list and it was already 4 days ago, that I don't remember what we had.
Eno, a couple blocks further north on Peachtree. Good wine selection. Way overcooked giant prawns and slow delivery of a salad that was very good. Best off for wine and cheese kind of thing.
Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles. Well if you don't get it, you ain't ever gonna get it.
Excellent lunch for $18 with tip. Midnight Special, 4 fried wings with a huge waffle. The only thing they really need to do is use real syrup, not that supermarket crap.
Thumbs Up diner on Edgewood. Best breakfast place for $14 I think I've ever had.
Delicious 3 egg fluffy omelette with what ever you want. Large buckwheat waffle, fresh squoze orange juice. Great vibe and service. I wish they had cappuccino though.
Instead we walked down the street to Javaology and had excellent cappuccino there.
Trader Vics. I knew what I was getting into, but went just the same Pedestrian chain food for people who are too tired to go out. My bad. $60pp with a bottle. Feh!
