Fontaine’s Oyster Bar

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Fontaine’s Oyster Bar Atmosphere I’ve always liked the atmosphere inside Fontaine’s Oyster Bar as it reminds me of an old-timey beach bar where sailors might hang out.

Two Urban Licks

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Two Urban Licks Atmosphere: Two Urban Licks is my go to “fancy” restaurant for many reasons. For starters, half the kitchen is in the middle of the restaurant where all sorts of delicious meats are being roasted over the fire.  The smell of cooking meat over the open fire,

La Parilla

The Wrecking Bar

Background: The Wrecking Bar is located on the outskirts of little five points, right before the Edgewood Shopping Center, in a white house.  The building was abandoned for years, and I always thought it would be a great place to put a night club, but the Wrecking Bar has done

Atlanta BBQ

Community Q BBQ

I’ve been hearing some major things about Community Q BBQ so when my friend asked which BBQ place I wanted to go to I suggested we try Community Q BBQ.  It’s always hard to pass up Fox Bros BBQ but I figure as a food blogger its my responsibility to

Folk Art

Atmosphere: As you may or may not know, Wisteria is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta.  When I heard that the owner and chef Jason Hill had opened Folk Art just a couple doors down, I knew I had to go.  I heard mixed reviews, which cultivated my anticipation

Majestic Diner

Atlanta Staple: Growing up in Atlanta, the Majestic Diner was kind of like that R rated movie that I wasn’t allowed to see until I was 15 but watched when I was 7.  First of all, the Majestic Diner is open 24/7, and it’s one of the few successful 24
