Mixed Grill a Meat Lovers Delight at Barcelona Wine Bar Virginia Highlands, Atlanta

photo 1 (3)

If you love meat Barcelona is your destination. The Barcelona mixed grill or Argentine Churrasco is a great mix of poultry, pork and steak. Very pure grilled smokey flavor not overwhelmed with seasonings.

Barcelona Mixed Grill
Two or more, 24.50 per person
NY Strip, Chicken, Pork Chop,
Gaucho Sausage

There are other mixed grills on the menu that contain fish or duck.

The and wine list or should I say book of wine filled with wines from South America. There has to be over 100 wines to choose from which is great for half off bottles of wine on Sunday! Also, please try the red wine sangria (in photo) it won’t let you down!

On any given night of the week (perhaps not in the past few weeks due to the relentless rain) patrons waiting for a table will crab a cocktail and converse on the sidewalk in front of the outdoor patio. Please make reservations if you are not in the mood to elbow your way to a seat at the bar or stand on the sidewalk for 45min while waiting for a table as it is usually standing room only after 7pm Wednesday through Saturday:

Wisconsin Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich at One Eared Stag Inman Park, Atlanta

photo 2 (1)

One Eared Stag is the most cranking little restaurant bar in Inman Park; known for Fried Chicken on Monday night which I continue to unintentionally miss. Also, FYI: The fried chicken on Monday is about the only consistent dish on the menu as they change their menu just about every night.

The fries which are served with a spicy mayo made from scratch (not shown) are a must try. Also, if you so happen to be in the area during lunch try the Wisconsin cheddar grilled cheese with beer mustard.

If you are a spicy food connoisseur or up for the challenge, try the Hot Chicken, the flavors were great but far too spicy for me. If you dare have the “Corpse Reviver” if you are into craft cocktails (usually made with bitters and or other unusual ingredients).

Seared Duck At Barcelona Wine Bar Virginia Highlands, Atlanta


Barcelona Wine Bar is one of my favorite bars in the city. On any given night it is slammed with cynical condescending business men. My type of spot. Either way being as they change their menu frequently this may no longer be available. This duck was served rare with corn sautéed with tomatoes, okra, peas and black pepper. It was a quaking perfection.

Their wine list is extensive and has many amazing wines from Chile and Spain. Half off bottles of wine on Sunday! Also, try their red wine Sangria!!

If you choose to dine on the weekends make sure you call for reservations!!

Orange Sesame Ginger Lollipop Wings at Buckhead Bottle Bar & Bistro Buckhead, Atlanta


Last night in the midst of having cocktails I decided to take a peek at the Latenight Menu (11pm-close) while at Buckhead Bottle Bar & Bistro. As you may or may not know chicken wings and cocktails after 11pm are the perfect combination.

I was expecting the typical pre-frozen, greasy overcooked wings; but to my surprise, the Orange Sesame Ginger Lollipop Wings were fresh flavorful with a pop of orange zest and ginger.

The lounge/club on the other hand is a mixed crowd that plays mainstream hip-hop music on Friday and Saturday and is standing room only after 11pm. If you prefer laid back lounge environment try them Monday through Thursday evening (between 5-10pm) for their full menu and Hookah service.

Mexican Corn at Chick-A-Biddy Atlantic Station, Atlanta

photo 5-2

The Mexican corn at Chick-A-Biddy is not your typical creamed corn. Sautéed with onions, red peppers and scallions with the perfect combination of seasonings. Pairs well with their Grilled Piri Piri Chicken.

To add, everything on the menu at this restaurant is priced $12.00 and under (with the exception of the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake $16.00) including the 1/4 chicken meal with two sides. I would recommend the Wood Grilled Piri Piri Chicken. The fried chicken on the other hand is nothing to jump up and down over.

The menu mostly consists of chicken, it also has veggie dishes such as a black bean burger, veggie chilli and quinoa and several salads .

The bartender (bald guy can’t remember his name) is a great mixologist. Please try the frozen mint julep or frozen watermelon margarita they’re both equally great.
