C & S Seafood & Oyster Bar - Atlanta, GA

One of the few good fresh seafood places in Atlanta.  It has been opened for a couple of years.  Great location ITP at the corner of Cobb Pkwy and Paces Mill Rd.  The menu is huge.  Front side is drink and wine selection.  The wine list covers mane varietals from all over the world.  I started out the meal with one the specials of the day, carrot-ginger-coriander soup.  One word, AMAZING.  I love soups (thanks to ROOM at Twelve), but this soup was perfect with the right amount of zing.  I then ordered another special of the day, Pacific Marlin, with purple mashed potatoes, and green beans.  The fish tasted very fresh.  The rest of the party ordered an Parmesan Encrusted Flounder, and Chilean Sea Bass with Spicy Chili Garlic sauce.  I guess the next time, I need to order some appetizers especially oysters.  The fish selection looked great in the fridge that was viewable from the dining area.  Great place for a power lunch and business dinner, and it’s quaint enough for a date!

Corks and Forks @ Summer Shade in Grant Park

Congratulations to this year's event organizers! It was great to see I will not get wet since it seems to rain every year for this event. The tents were nicely decorated and spacious. I enjoyed seeing old faces like Chef Rathburn (Rathburn's) and Chef Carvel Grant Gould (Canoe) but I was disappointed with their food choices (popcorn ice cream???) come on it's for a good cause (Grant Park Conservancy)! Of course their choices were delicious but a little more substance next year guys. The new guys on the block were impressive! Dogwood's Chef Shane Touhy and Going Coastal were among my favorites. Il Mulino's raviolis were amazing (yes! I had seconds). Runner ups were Peasant Bistro's Michael Patria and Milton's Chef Boyd A. Rose (best kept secret OTP). The wine selections were good and the sommeliers were very friendly (not to mention very patient with all of the wineignoramous types). Overall it was a delightful experience and I can not feel better about helping preserve Atlanta's Park. However don't expect to see any local favorites from Grant Park or authentic international cuisine. This one is for the big leaguers only!

Capt. Charlie's - REEF GRILL - Juno Beach, FL

Classic.....I go down to Florida often, and this is still the place to go for fresh fish, great wine.....and of course....DESSERTS. I tell everyone about this place. From the coleslaw....to any fish with double veggies.....you can’t go wrong.......my first dish ever was a Peppered Swordfish with Portobello Linguini......I will never forget that.

Two Urban Licks - Atlanta

I fell in love with the place when we pulled into the valet. Then walking through the tall swing doors, into a beautiful space or art, people, food, and of course drinks. The space is just amazing to view from all corners. The only thing I did not like was the booth for 6 that they sat us in right by the glass enclosed rotisserie. Let’s just say, it was little hot, even with the AC and the doors down later. The food was great! A must spot for many times again, just make sure they keep you away from the booth for 6 that is HOT!

JCT Kitchen & Bar

A little hidden treasure that I was very happy to find. First the KITCHEN has great choices in the menu. Next time I will try the fried chicken, but the grits were amazing. I had the fish of the day, and it was great. Went upstairs to the BAR. I actually fell in love with it the week before when I walked by it when it was closed. Great people, great choices, great locale.  The BAR has a great patio and live music for a great evening with friends.

Il Mulino - Atlanta

I had heard about the original location in New York from a client. From what people told me, this place lived up to the hype. Great meal and great service equals a great evening no matter the cost. I had the Ravioli Porcini and the Veal Arugula. They were both amazing. The wine recommendation by the captain was good. It was a Super Tuscan wine. I will tell everyone to go here and I will be back for more.
