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!
