Usually healthy competition breeds excellence. Such is not the case for La Paz Mexican Restaurant and Cantina. Located in the heart of Historic Vinings Plaza and surrounded by several other excellent restaurants, (not to mention the many Mexican Restaurants in the greater Fulton-Cobb County area) La Paz falls flat on its face.
The atmosphere of La Paz is fine enough. The establishment is located in a building whose architecture mirrors a small chapel. It appears quai... More >>

Kobe beef is considered by many to be the pinnacle of beef. Why is this? Kobe beef has a special combination of qualities that make it distinct. It has a well marbled texture, and is extremely flavorful and tender. When prepared properly, you won't need a steak knife to cut it. It's also very expensive and hard to come by, especially in Japanese varieties, which give it an exclusive feel. Kobe beef is used in a lot of traditional and fusion dishes. Kobe beef sliders and meatballs are becoming... More >>

OK - this is way better than most crappy American street food! It’s not like the kind you get at the Georgia State Fair, but maybe in New York City. Let’s call it gourmet street food.A funky little cafe in historic Roswell on Canton Street has created an urban atmosphere and top-notch fare. The kitchen inside serves up food from what looks like a street cart vendor, and the walls are painted with a bright, dynamic urban street scene. There’s a (fairly loud) front bar and dining ...

The Fickle Pickle Cafe is a light, bright old Victorian home that serves up Southern charm and flavor. This is one of those quirky little places that has separate dining rooms within each room of an old house. My first time to the Fickle Pickle, I couldn’t help but notice the pickle paraphernalia — bright green pickle shaped cookies and pickle shaped chocolate covered in green foil. They seem to carry less pickle souvenirs now, a few years later, but still serve the same great food. ... More >>
Douceur de France opened in 1999 as a small, French bakery providing wholesale pastries to local restaurants and hotels. They grew into a small cafe (and I mean small!) in Marietta, expanding their menu to include entrees such as soups, salads, quiches, and sandwiches. In this tiny Marietta restaurant just a few minutes off of the square, it quickly became hard to find a place to sit. Customers would form a line in the gravel parking lot to wait for a table, even during our cold, damp winter. ... More >>
The Roswell Teahouse Review- Teahouse and Healthy Dining
The Roswell Teahouse is a rare gem of a restaurant, even if you’re not into tea. But all the better if you are!
Their food is simple, understandable, fresh, healthy, many times organic, and because nothing is fried, won’t make you want to go back to your desk and take a nap. But the best part is that it’s also flavorful, delicious, and inexpensive.
Since it is a teahouse, let’s start w... More >>
Bistro VG isn’t just a bistro - it’s a vacation from Atlanta’s sprawling strip malls and mediocre fare. It offers the kind of unique ambience and flavors I had become accustomed to when living in downtown Chicago.
My husband and I first went to Bistro VG’s for a standard lunch, looking for something neither rushed nor lingering, and for just over an hour we were so soothed and relaxed by the atmosphere and tantalized by the food that I ended up feeling like we had been o... More >>
