Atlanta ,a short business trip mixed with pleasure
February 18, 2018
Quick 90 min flight from Dallas to Atlanta,for a business trip during the days and exploring the metroplex during the evenings
After landing , I rented a nice Hemi truck at National rental which is recommended , as you can pick whatever in the lot , and drove to office . Atlanta traffic is terrible so plan longer drive to and from the airport !!!.
As I needed to continue working on 2018 new year resolution and 32 degree didn’t scared me #noexcuses , I went to an amazing run in RockMill park where I saw a family of Deers 10 fit from me , just beautiful.
Now to the culinary part of my visit , which is always huge part of any of my travels , I will share restaurants from current and previous visits.
Barcelona Westside Ironworks – tapas , great wine and delicious food , Octopus was really good .
Rumi’s Kitchen Avalon – Persian food ,great Kebab and amazing eggplant appetizers .
Chuy’s – Mexican – Tex Mex style , great for lunch .
South Main Kitchen – Southern food , great bar , and amazing food .
Octopus and pork shoulder were delicious and beautifully served.
I usually don’t try Steaks during my travels as they usually disappoint me and I can make a better one .
Cabernet Steakhouse – fine steakhouse , great service , which serve their steaks cooked as ordered, but again , you can cook same at home.
I love to go to the cigar bar there , where I smoke a fine Cigar and have a Manhattan , before or after the meal . Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse Dunwoody – great brazilian steakhouse chain , never dissapoint.
Pampas Steakhouse – an Argentinian steakhouse , amazing cuts of meats , great selection of wine and wonderful Chimichurri sauce which goes well with the steaks.
Bistro Niko – French Bistro – no pics but great bistro , the steaks and fritts was Yummy .
Alpine Bakery and Trattoria – Italian & Desert , during the days of my non GF , amazing pasta went well with Sauvignon blanc and great desserts.
One of my favorite “dessert” at Highland Cigar Co.
A great local beer where you can smoke your own cigar or buy it there paired with nice Scotch.
Atlanta visit was good to me 🙂 .
