The E. 48th Street Market in Dunwoody reminds me of small neighborhood groceries and markets in my parents’ hometown in northern New Jersey. It’s a family-owned and -operated Italian food specialty market – part cafe, part caterer, part grocery – and it’s all family. Cozily cramped, but spotlessly clean and organized, the E. 48th Street [...]
I had the opportunity to take a unique cooking class a few weeks ago at Progressive Medical Center in Dunwoody. Lupa Irie, PMC Lifestyle Consultant, who has extensive experience in natural cooking and traditional food preparation, teaches classes focused on supporting gut health, long-term immune function, rebuilding digestion and reducing inflammation. Just sitting with Lupa [...]
When you’re seated at INC, your server will be quick to tell you that the food you are about to enjoy is not Mexican, it is Latin American street food. And while the menu items seem to be more of an upscale interpretation of street food, there were more than a few items I was [...]

The heat in Atlanta has been nearly unbearable – I find myself not wanting to leave the house and the oasis of ice-cold air conditioning. Here’s a reason to leave the house today, though: the Atlanta Summer Beer Festival is tonight from 5:00 to 10:00 PM. The organizers of the Atlanta Summer Beer Fest are [...]
#135 – Enjoy Brunch at Rosebud in Virginia Highland This Weekend – and a Chance to WIN a $200 Gift Card!
The first time I had brunch at Rosebud, I was nothing short of impressed, as soon as I sat down at the bar. I hadn’t even seen a menu yet, but the drink menu offered Housemade Bloody Marys – I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It’s a rare (not impossible, but close to [...]
#134 – Edible Garden and Outdoor Kitchen at the Atlanta Botanical Garden – See Chef Demos Every Saturday & Sunday!
One of the fun things about writing 365Atlanta.com is the emails I get from readers with suggestions of things to write about. I had a great email from Chef Megan McCarthy a few weeks ago, introducing me to the new Edible Garden and Outdoor Kitchen at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Every Saturday and Sunday through [...]
Last night we had the chance to try Buckhead’s newest neighborhood restaurant and cocktail bar, Buckhead Bottle Bar. Though there is considerable buzz about the restaurant’s proprietors, A.D. Allushi and Chef Ian Winslade, and their partner, Atlanta Hawk Zaza Pachulia, it’s more important to me to enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the service. We [...]
Last month, I went to check out the monthly MothUP at Manuel’s Tavern, after reading so much about it on Facebook and Twitter. Not knowing what to expect, what I found was a really fun evening of storytelling and laughter in a cozy private room at Manuel’s Tavern. The Moth is a nonprofit organization that [...]
The June/July issue of Garden and Gun magazine arrived in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago with a saliva-inducing photo of a perfect cherry pie on the cover, advertising “An Insider’s Guide to Pie Shops” in “The Secret South.” Imagine my surprise that Roswell’s The Pie Hole was not included in the list! Perhaps [...]
