Bocado Burger, Herb Fries and Bland Chicken at Bocado West Midtown, Atlanta

The pickles on the burger are made in house by H&F(Holman & Finch), perfect amount of cheese and the fries are addictive and made from scratch! I love their use of spicy mayo opposed to ketchup. They also have a good craft beer list….

On the other hand, the chicken and grits wasn’t their strong point, it was bland and the grits left nothing to desire….

But I digress, if you participate in their wine tastings you receive 20% off your entire meal!

Brunch at Campagnolo Midtown, Atlanta

photo 2 (3)

I love Brunch! It’s the most exciting part of Sunday it’s the perfect reason for Bloody Marys and Mimosa; so I while Scout Mob Surfing I stumbled upon Campagnolo and its 50% off deal, as most people would assume that if a restaurant has a “coupon” it must not be that great! Well you would be incorrect my friend! This is one of the best Brunch destinations in Atlanta!

Catch them while they are still on Scoutmob and have a Mimosa for me!

My Recommendations:
Tomato Bisque
Campagnolo Breakfast
Eggs Benedict
$5.00 Bloody Mary with $3.00 refills

Pulled Pork Arepa and Chicken Empanada at Arepa Mia Edgewood, Atlanta

I’ve had Arepa’s in Miami. Pretty much only stuffed with cheese. Venezuelan native Lis Hernandez, native brings Arepa’s to life with Meat filled Arepa’s.

I recommend the Pulled Pork Arepa (Penril, $6.50), It was so good I went back to have another.

Try the Chicken Empanada’s (Pollo La Catira, $5.00), they are made from scratch it will change your view of the pre-frozen empanadas you’ve been bombarded with at Mexican and Latin restaurants.

If you are into fresh made juices Arepa Mia has amazing fresh made juices (Guava and Papaya) and they are amazing!

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

photo_1

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!!
