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. The white tablecloth restaurant, is certainly not something you would expect from the outside strip mall view. As soon as you are seated, they’ll bring […]

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. […]

Chequers Relocates to East Cobb

After many years in the Perimeter area, Chequers Steaks and Seafood relocated to East Cobb. Taking over the old Houlihans space, they seem to be a welcome addition for East Cobbers. We were invited to sample the menu at Chequers in its new home. The wines by the glass list didn’t pique my interest very […]

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 […]

Feast of the Seven Fishes Christmas Eve Seafood Dinner

A tradition believed to have originated in Sicily and now alive in many quarters of Northeast Italy is continued at Veni Vidi Vici and Davio’s in celebration of “La Vigilia”, the vigil of Christ’s birth, or Christmas Eve. The eating of fish on Christmas Eve is actually a Catholic tradition. Catholics were expected to abstain from […]

MAR Coastal Seafood, Decatur Restaurant Review

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 […]

One such event included top Atlanta chef, Ford Fry. Ford Fry was demonstrating a couple different dishes served at his restaurants around the […]

SOHO Restaurant Vinings Revisited

It has been nearly three years since I last visited SOHO in Vinings. Tucked away in the Vinings Jubilee shopping center, SOHO has been impressing Vinings residents and hosting business dinners for years, yet many in Atlanta aren’t aware of it. They’ve got wonderful cocktails, super wines and terrific food. If you haven’t dined at […]

Fried Shrimp Po’ Boy Recipe

I don’t know if it is my recent trip to NOLA sans a decent Po’ Boy or a recent trip to the beach, eating lots o’ seafood. Either way, I’ve had Po’ Boys on the brain. Here’s a recipe I came across for a Fried Shrimp Po’ Boy. Ingredients: 1 10-12″ long piece of New […]
