Rico’s World Kitchen: Metro Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret

Rico's Fried Green Tomato Salad

For the past two years, Rico’s World Kitchen in downtown historic Buford, GA has been my best-kept secret. Despite my best efforts, I couldn’t keep it hidden for too long. Chef and owner, Rico Cunnington, has been turning heads and turned this once four table restaurant into a shining light in the Buford and Metro […]

Sandwich Heaven in a Sandy Springs Cafe

Breadwinner Cafe and Bakery

One of God’s greatest gifts to mankind was the sandwich.  I believe that He had me in mind when He blessed someone with the idea.  When I stumble onto a sandwich place that I have never been to before, I tend to be a little over zealous about making my way over to try it. […]

BrickTop’s in Buckhead: As American as Deviled Eggs

Bricktop in Buckhead, Atlanta, GA

Despite having lived in Atlanta for a little over two years, there’s one thing that I’ve constantly felt I’ve been missing; a real “taste” of Atlanta. The majority of my dining adventures consist of cooking at home, visiting the same favorite few places, some chains (shame on me) and from time to time a ritzy […]

Midtown Market Is a Sweet Mid-Day Treat

MidtownMarketSlide

Picture this: It’s your first week at a new job in a new part of town that you are by no means familiar with. You’re eager to get your bearings so one fine, sunny Thursday afternoon during your lunch hour you wonder down the street to see if anything strikes your fancy. Suddenly you see […]

Café Agora’s Authentic Medieterranean in the Heart of the South

Cafe Agora in Atlanta

Now I’m morally conflicted about whether or not I should even write this entry.  It’s not that the material is controversial or that I’m being paid under the table for it, but when you find a neighbor gem of a restaurant, I am conflicted about telling everyone I know about how good it is with […]

South City Kitchen Midtown Brings Out Your Southern Drawl

South City Kitchen Midtown Atlanta

Anyone who grows up in Northern Virginia, like I did, will argue that it should be a separate state from Virginia. Most of us claim that we are Northerners when we venture down to the South, regardless of where the Mason-Dixon line lies. Sweet tea and Chick-fil-a didn’t even reach our area until just a […]

The Brickery Bar & Grill | Burgers, Beer, & Much More!

The Brickery Sandy Springs

So you just threw dinner into the oven, got distracted with other household chores and before you know it something smells like burnt lasagna.  It is burnt lasagna, and by the time you smelled the burning and realized it, it was too late.  Frustrated, you take the charred dinner out of the oven while trying not to […]

{three} sheets to Sandy Springs

{three} sheets in Sandy Springs

The great thing about living in Atlanta is that there are a bunch of cities combined into one.  Whether you are in Midtown, Decatur, Buckhead, or College Park, you can find some great local places to go eat.  Some of us don’t live inside the Perimeter, but we still reap the benefits of living in […]
