Recent Bites: General Muir, Paper Plane

Stopped by The General Muir for lunch last week. Didn't take many great pics, but the food was tasty.
The deviled eggs. Pretty traditional, I know, but damn, they are tasty. I also had their reuben, which was very good. Friends had the piled-high pastrami which had a nice peppery exterior. I want to eat that again.I hear dinner is quite good at GM as well now.
Also paid another visit to Paper Plane, the coolest watering hole in Decatur, which is an accomplishment in our little town that is now chock full of cool watering holes. The foreign affairs above was referred to by my table mates as the old-man drink of the night. Smelled like a library, and an old suitcase, but in a comforting sort of way. It was a tasty concoction of Alma Reposado Tequila, Rare Wine Company's “New York” Madeira, Amaro Montenegro, and Cherry Heering.
Smoked chicken with pate and brussels sprout hash. Great smoke in the chicken. Could have used a crispier skin, but kudos for the great smoky flavor and juicy interior.
Smoked banana ice cream on warm chocolate cake. Yum.

  2. Those decatur Fascists make some good looking food and drink.
