End of Summer Smattering
I've been busy lately and haven't checked-in here on this blog of mine that keeps floundering on. Lacking any real content or creative things to say, here's some pics on recent eats around town. I had lunch at Lusca last week. The few dishes were tried were good. Above was a standout; the farm egg, with uni, ponzu and bonito. A great bite.
We also tried Lusca's lobster roll. It was decent, but perhaps a bit pricey at $19. Fries were great. Interesting offerings at Lusca and I'd likely visit more often if I spent more time on that side of town.
Summer truffle toast and smoked butter from Kimball House a few weeks back. Good stuff. While Kimball House has been an excellent hang out from day one, it seems the kitchen is stepping up their game recently and that's a good thing.
More Kimball House fun with onion rings.
Brunch at General Muir with pastrami, egg, and cheese on rye. Wha? This is what you want for breakfast.
Poached eggs and mushrooms over grits, also from The General Muir brunch. I'm running out of superlatives for The General Muir. It never disappoints.
Back at Taqueria la Oaxaquena in Jonesboro for their excellent tlayuda. La Oaxaquena is a bit of a hidden gem south of Atlanta, but it's definitely worth the trip for their authentic Mexican eats.
A great wine amidst an evening of great wine at a friend's birthday celebration. The 1967 Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon. Old-school California Cabernet showing brilliantly at age 47. Thanks, Legend.
