A Priori Seafood, Atlanta, GA Restaurant Review

  If you’ve spent much time on Buford Highway, you’ll know most of the restaurants aren’t known for their decor. A notable exception is A-Priori Seafood.

MAYA Steaks and Seafood in Sandy Springs

MAYA Steak, only open for about two months in Sandy Springs, took the place of the short-lived Seabass Kitchen.

Anchors Seafood and Ale House, Roswell, First Impressions

Walking into Anchors Seafood and Ale House around 6 pm on Saturday is a huge mistake, as I learned. The restaurant is only about 10 percent full at that point, but that didn’t stop the hostess from telling us they have so many reservations, the only spot available is at a high top in the bar area. […]

Road Trip: Hilton Head Dining

My girlfriends and I try to squeeze in a couple girls weekends each year. Last year, we had a blast during my bachelorette weekend in Savannah. This year, we thought we’d have our adult spring break in Hilton Head. While the Westin really disappointed us (it felt more like a Holiday Inn than what I’ve […]

Lure Seafood, Midtown, Atlanta, GA Restaurant Review

Lure restaurant, part of the Fifth Group empire is the newest concept to the family. With Mexican, Italian, Mediterranean and Southern covered, it was the perfect addition to the Fifth group family. I’m rather late to the game, with the restaurant now being open about a year and a half. But wanted to share my dining […]

I never get to Decatur as often as I would like, but every time I’m there, I always love it and I always say, “I should spend more time here.” I was reminded of this when I visited MAR restaurant on a recent August evening. From MAR’s website: “Executive Chef Joey Zelinka brings his expertise […]
