In case you didn’t already know, I should tell you that I grew up just outside of Auburn, Alabama. I graduated from Auburn University (as did my father, husband and countless other people close to me including Foodie Patty). I also sent both of my children to Auburn University. … Read More »
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 »
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 »

Set in the 4th Ward district for the past year and a half or so is a restaurant that is the hottest ticket in town. I know why. My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Staplehouse for my surprise birthday present several Friday nights ago.… Read More »

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 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 »
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?” … Read More »
8 degrees Fahrenheit is a great way to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. I wanted to pass along an idea for a sweet treat recommended by my 12 and 14 year old daughters. This Asian ice cream shop is quite unique. They serve a Thai style ice cream that is delicious for kid’s young and old.… Read More »
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 »
I hope every mother got to enjoy a wonderful day that’s all about you! For those of you who went to brunch/lunch and enjoyed it, I would love to hear about where you went. Personally I had quite possibly my most enjoyable Mother’s day ever. My husband Ed, and two daughters, Alaina and Sophia, started out by ushering at the contemporary service at DUMC.… Read More »
Following is a smorgasbord of restaurants all over the city that have Mother’s Day brunches/lunches. Please call in advance to double check their menu options and to make reservations. This Sunday is such a popular day to enjoy lunch out.

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 »

He coaches all four of his sons in baseball, serves on the men’s board and coaches on the football side too. As if that isn’t enough, Matt is the co-owner of Wright’s Gourmet in Dunwoody with his father.… Read More »
