When considering what restaurant group in Atlanta has consistently raised the bar in customer service, good value, and constant, innovative improvements: it’s pretty evident that Metrotainment Café comes to mind.

Let’s all just admit it: when a specific ethnic craving hits
us, we often turn to Google to find the closest listing, and that
restaurant sneaks its way in to our weekly routine. But
it’s when we find one of those hidden passions like R. Thomas
that these rare establishments surprise and stick with us, find its way
to the top spot for our birthdays and special occasions, or share the
couch with us on those lazy days and movie nights.
And so, when a hunger for curry st... More >>
Located in the secret nook of Mill Street, just off the Marietta Square, Cool Beans is the official coffee and pastry spot of native Mariettians. While coffee shops provide a nice place to sit back and relax or to show of your trendy new apple product, aside from a nice atmosphere, I’m afraid that Cool Beans doesn’t have much to offer. The atmosphere itself is nice. Like most coffee shops, Cool Beans walls are covered with the colorful work of struggling artist. Ther... More >>

"So, you're an English Major; what will you do with that?" it's different for everyone, but this is the type of thing that makes me want to visit Cami Cakes. Those moist, melt-in-your-mouth cupcakes seem to make my lack of prospects after college seem completely fine. There are over twenty favors, and at least ten are there every day--from red velvet to raspberry truffle to banana cream. As I bite into my favorite, the salted caramel, my parents' disappointed faces disappear and I only have... More >>
Takorea is a restaurant that has supposedly combined the best delicacies of both Korea and Mexico. This combination definitely sets this restaurant apart from other Korean or Mexican restaurants, however odd the combination may seem. I’ve had the opportunity to taste Korean food plenty of times overseas, I would not consider myself an expert on Korean dishes but I will say that I am accustomed to it and have an acquired taste for it.
Finding a place to park was quite a hassle,... More >>
Yes, this is the infamous chicken and waffles owned by the queen of soul Gladys Knight herself and televised by the very popular show Man vs. Food. I cannot believe I lived in Atlanta for so long and did not decide to come to this restaurant until after I saw it on Man vs. Food. Well, regardless of how I came to know of this restaurant, now I know, and I was very curious to see if the credit that the show gave this restaurant actually cashed out at the bank.

We had heard the rumors about waiting in line at Antico during peak lunch and dinner hours, so we decided to arrive right before they opened on a Saturday. Thinking they opened at 11:30 based on the hours listed on their website, we arrived just a few minutes before only to find a few cars in the parking lot and the sign on the door stating new Saturday hours opening at noon. We had one really hungry kid in our car and wandered across the street to McDonald’s to get some fries and pass the t... More >>
Empire State South serves Southern cooking with an adventurous twist. This is no greasy diner with grease and butter laden beans, greens, and chicken. It’s gourmet, eclectic, and purposeful. The chefs clearly put a great deal of thought into individually crafting each dish to deliver full flavor. Because they have reinvented most Southern dishes, I highly recommend viewing the menus on their website before you go to make sure there’s something you want to try.

As you approach the door of the Après Diem Café Bistro, well you actually walk through the outdoor seating area first, which kind of puts you in the mind of one of those French Cafés you might see in a movie. The atmosphere of the overall restaurant is dark and somewhat mysterious; you might find yourself gazing around at the groups of people eating, drinking and socializing and wonder how they all came to be. The dark tone of the restaurant makes it a great first date spot or even better, ... More >>
Located in the heart of Atlanta, The Melting Pot proves the theory that, indeed, cheese does have power. However, this superhero ingredient is not the only one saving the day against the foe of boring meals – and the others are not mere sidekicks either.
Recently, my mother and I decided to spend a Mother/Daughter Day together just because. Having never tried The Melting Pot – and being a fondue enthusiast – my mother suggested we treat ourselves. Getting my agreement was no... More >>
