Del Frisco’s Grille, Buckhead, Atlanta Review

Located at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Buckhead, just about 10 steps across the hotel entrance is Del Frisco’s Grille. Never having been, I likened it to a Capital Grille, based solely on the menu. However, it is more like the Capital Grille’s younger brother, with it’s more modern style and […]

Tutto Kitchen and Bar, Roswell, GA Review

Tutto Kitchen and Bar is small restaurant that opened in Roswell late last fall. I visited Tutto for my birthday dinner recently. Located in “Restaurant Row” in downtown Roswell, I’m sure parking can be an issue on weekends, but luckily it was a weekday and we easily snagged a spot. Upon entering Tutto, you can’t […]

Pampas Steakhouse, Johns Creek, GA Restaurant Review

After being out of work for several months, my talented, successful hubby found a terrific job in Alpharetta that he loves!  Yep, he has many other skills besides the amazing photos he takes for me. Hooray for a non soul-sucking commute! To celebrate, we decided to have dinner with some friends at Pampas Steakhouse, an […]

Zinburger Opens in Lenox Mall, Buckhead, Atlanta

Zinburger opened recently in Lenox Mall, next to the newly opened True Food Kitchen. While the concepts are vastly different, the interior and look and feel of the two restaurants is quite similar. The wood tables and bar and even cocktail glasses are nearly identical. While I missed the big hulabaloo shindig when Zinbuger launched, […]

Bea has traveled extensively and wanted to bring diners together to try some of Atlanta’s hot spots. I was invited to accompany Bea on her most recent adventure at […]

La Tagliatella, Atlanta, GA Restaurant Review

La Tagliatella is a European chain that opened its first restaurant on US soil in Midtown Atlanta. Unfortunately, Atlantans said “no thanks” to La Tagliatella and it shuttered several months ago. One other location remains in Atlanta at Emory. Having eaten at La Tagliatella before it shuttered, I can see some of this things that […]

Seasons 52 Spring Menu

On a recent Tuesday, Seasons 52 Perimeter was jam packed with diners. A beautiful evening, we requested patio dining but there was not one table available. Considering how hard it is for restaurants these days, I’m always shocked at how crowded it is when I visit Seasons 52. As the flatbread choices were cheese-laden with […]

If you’ve been to Barcelona Wine Bar, the Inman Park tapas spot open for about two years, you wouldn’t suspect that it is a chain. Though small as far as chains go, there are several other locations in the northeast.  The expansive space is divided into two areas. To the left is the bar with […]
