You could say it’s always a feeding frenzy at Atlanta Eats’ HQ, but to us it’s just another hard day’s work. We’re sharing the best things we ate last week to give you some food inspiration for the week ahead. Check out AtlantaEatsTV on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for a constant stream of pictures if this doesn’t quite cure your food porn fix…
Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Saltwood (Midtown)
Walking inside a French influenced restaurant, a bowl of Brussels sprouts does not seem like they should be a stand out menu item. But, truth be told, every hand crafted dish from Executive Chef and Maitre Cuisinier de France, Olivier Gaupin, is a showstopper. From Pates on charcuterie boards to passion fruit filled desserts, there is no stone left unturned in Chef Gaupin’s kitchen. The Brussels sprouts are no exception with special care and plating- he adds a crunchy portion of bacon to cover the bottom of the dish, which complements the healthy shaving of Parmesan on top. Bacon + Brussels + Parmesan = textural heaven. Pay Chef Gaupin a compliment and see Saltwood stat.
Chicken Biscuit from Joy Cafe (Buckhead)
The newest addition to the Joy Café menu is almost as impressive as their announcement of opening a second location! This is the type of great news we need to hear at the beginning of the week! The chicken biscuit is available for weekend brunch and it will also be served as part of their VIP spread at the BB&T Atlanta Open on Sunday, August 7th. Joy Café’s second location is set to open in Midtown in late August. Find out more about both topics on our segment on CBS Atlanta Plugged In!
Lassoni Cauliflower from Tabla (Midtown)
Tabla’s Indian cuisine is delightful from appetizer onward. Their Tikka Masala tastes like the rich tomato flavor I frequently crave and the crunch surrounding each pillow-y potato samosa throws all diets out the window. But, there was no doubt that the showstopper of this flavorful lunch was the Lassoni Cauliflower appetizer. The cauliflower is lightly fried in a chili garlic sauce, which provides some spice in this delicate bite. Make sure to call for a reservation at Tabla- the restaurant fills fast and now we know why!
