Chicken and the Egg (Dallas/Marietta)

/ Updated on May 31, 2014

The somewhat upscale yet very reasonably priced Chicken and the Egg is sort of a cross between a(Muse.), Lupo di Mare and Blue Coast (if you’re not from Rehoboth Beach/Bethany Beach areas, this will mean nothing). The place is very … Continue reading

Olive Tree (Hiram)

/ Updated on June 8, 2014

The tiny town of Hiram, GA looks like a back-lot movie set for Western and cowboy films. I was tempted to look behind the building façades just to make sure they weren’t propped up with two-by-fours. The place is charming, … Continue reading

Two Urban Licks (downtown)

/ Updated on June 1, 2014

Don’t even try to drive there. Even our cab driver (an Atlanta native) got lost. But when you finally do open the front door, your Quixotic search will have been worth it. Though the name could be suggestive of who-knows-what, it … Continue reading

Chops Lobster Bar (Buckhead)

/ Updated on June 1, 2014

In spite of its name, Chops Lobster Bar is considered one of the premier Steakhouses in the country. After much grueling research, I have determined that that is quite possibly true (continued studies will, of course, be necessary). I love … Continue reading

Buckhead Diner (Buckhead)

/ Updated on June 8, 2014

Well, it looks like a diner (lots of clean, brushed chrome, glass, and cobalt blue neon), and tastes like a diner (comfort food, but with a suspiciously whimsical twist), and sounds like a diner (a busy, open kitchen with white-coated chefs scurrying … Continue reading

Jim ‘N Nick’s has 5 locations in Georgia, but The Foodie is most familiar with the Jim ‘N’ Nick’s installation in Hiram, about 30 or so minutes outside of metro Atlanta. You can tell when you turn the corner that … Continue reading

Grand Hyatt Hotel in Buckhead

/ Updated on May 31, 2014

Sometimes after a hard day there’s nothing better than a quiet bar with friendly servers. One of the best is the Onyx, right smack in the lobby of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Buckhead. Thirty-foot ceilings, overstuffed chairs (spaced far apart) and little … Continue reading
