The List: We Suki Suki

Perhaps my favorite thing about (semi) systematically working through Creative Loafing’s 100 Best Dish List is how their picks force me to go off the beaten trail, not just in what I order, but also where I go. For the latest dish, I ventured into East Atlanta (“EAV” for locals), home of all kinds of […]

“Barbecue may not be the road to world peace, but it’s a start” Antony Bourdain If you’ve ever seen any list such as “Atlanta’s Best BBQ,” you have undoubtedly heard of Heirloom BBQ. So, not surprisingly, the restaurant has one dish on Creative Loafing’s Best Dish List. This quirky restaurant (located just inside 285 near […]

The List: The Cookie Studio

I feel it’s been ages since I’ve posted reviews from Creative Loafing’s 100 Best Dish List, so this week I focused on trying something new. (Trying new things is ALWAYS fun!) Using my logic, the best place to get back on the eating wagon is with a dessert. And, just to make sure I’m maximizing […]

The List: Chocolate Cake

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I thought I should remind you about where to find the best chocolate cake in the city.  I wrote this a couple of years ago, but this dessert STILL wins!! ****************************************************** I rarely meet a chocolate dessert that I’d opt for over a fruit dessert. I have plenty of odd habits […]

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.” Voltaire Not precisely sure how 2015 disappeared so quickly, but MAN was it delicious! I thought it would be helpful, at least for my long-term memory, to recap the most memorable dishes of […]

There are so many reasons to love the Creative Loafing Best Dish List, but among my favorites is the way it “forces” me to order dishes I would otherwise avoid. Honestly, I would never, ever order a corndog (the Fryinstein) made with a beef frank, kielbasa, and Italian sausage unless I had a  GOAL to […]

The Best Atlanta Dessert

November 29, 2015

Call off the dogs! The hunt is over. If you’re looking for the best dessert in Atlanta (and, let’s be honest, who ISN’T interested in finding this?), it’s waiting for you at Gunshow.  I’ve raved about Gunshow before (here and here), but it’s tough to suggest specific dishes because a) the menu changes daily and […]

The List: BoccaLupo

I have gushed about BoccaLupo for ages, so I was thrilled to finally see them represented on Creative Loafing’s Best Dish List. The first entry, the 20-yolk tagliatelle with wild mushrooms, Tuscan kale Kimchi, and butter is about as good as any pasta you’ll ever have this side of the Atlantic.  The wide noodles are […]

The List: Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup

An unscheduled meeting brought me to downtown Atlanta this week and it proved to be a PERFECT excuse to pop into Dua Vietnamese to check out their entrant on the Creative Loafing Best Dish List. Of course, I didn’t have much time (who does at lunch?), so I called ahead to place my order for […]

The List: Kimball House Pt 2

September 27, 2015

When I run into people who ask where to go to celebrate a special occasion, I hesitate to share my favorite place, Kimball House, because it doesn’t really fit the celebration mode. They don’t take reservations, so you don’t know exactly how long you’ll wait. The atmosphere is loud. And, compared to many of the […]
