Ruchi serves up solid Bangladeshi and Indian favorites in Chamblee

Foodie Patty loved Bangladeshi and Indian food….heck, she loved food.  This article made me think of and long for her.  If she were here we would have headed directly to this restaurant today.  Actually, she would have known about it well before I read this article so I probably would have already gone there…..

I’ll check it out soon.  … Read More »

Patty’s Foodie Frenzy: Fogo de Chao

Fogo de Chão is an authentic Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, which has specialized in fire-roasting high-quality meats for 26 years. …Fogo is proudly gluten friendly but not vegan friendly…no surprise!!

Fairly new on our restaurant scene is the Dunwoody Fogo De Chao.  The other Fogo in town (Buckhead) has been very successful, so I expect the Dunwoody location will also thrive. … Read More »

Patty’s Foodie Frenzy: Da Vinci’s Donuts

by Patty Moncrief

After picking my daughter up from school on Wednesday, I told her that we needed to make a quick stop at Publix.  After all of the protests, she began to negotiate.  She would go to the store with me, if we could go to Da Vinci’s Donuts afterward.  It was such a sacrifice for me to make (not). … Read More »

Foodie Patty: One Eared Stag

Foodie Frenzy #24 – One Eared Stag

For our next lunch date, I wanted to find a restaurant in the Inman Park/Old Fourth Ward/Krog Street area.  We were somewhat limited by restaurants that serve lunch, however there were quite a few to choose from.  I ultimately chose One Eared Stag because they featured a unique gluten-free fried chicken. … Read More »

Patty’s Foodie Frenzy: M Five Seven Two – Downtown Tucker

M/572 is a great addition to the new City of Tucker. For anyone who has never been to Tucker, you now have another reason to visit my hometown.  Most people go to Tucker for Matthews Cafeteria. I still laugh about the first time I met Audra’s husband Kirk, 20+ years ago, the first question he asked was “do you always go to Matthews?”  

 Across Main Street you now have another southern cooking restaurant that is completely different. … Read More »

Patty’s Foodie Frenzy: Rumi’s Kitchen

     Rumi’s Kitchen has been on our short list for quite some time since I have seen and heard rave reviews. Creative Persian cuisine had us intrigued. I have two colleagues who are Persian and according to both of them, Rumi’s Kitchen is the best of its kind in the city.  Judging by the crowd when we walked in at noon, it is quite the popular lunch spot. … Read More »

Patty’s Foodie Frenzy: Under the Cork Tree

Foodie Frenzy #21 Under the Cork Tree

Under the Cork Tree opened only a few months ago but with surprisingly little fanfare since it is from the same team behind Hammocks but a little more upscale.  It’s located in the Prado shopping center on Roswell Road in the space vacated by Joli Kobe.  It is billed as a stylish spot for tapas and Mediterranean entrees, plus a global wine bar. … Read More »
