Sampler at Stats

While rooting for the US team on Monday vs Ghana, the Atlanta Eats team descended on Stats in Downtown Atlanta. Now, it wouldn’t have been very patriotic if we hadn’t also descended on a platter of snack with the same fervor. And boy did Stats deliver; wings, ribs, fries, queso all pilled up in front of us. We were almost defeated, but we dominated. Much like the American team. USA! USA! USA!



Sushi at Minato

This week brought us International Sushi Day, so of course we obliged. There is a hidden gem of a sushi spot in Smyrna by the name of Minato. Whatever magic they do to their salmon is out of this world. If you go, you have to try the Cowgirl Hat (not pictured, as it was devoured too quickly), which is a generous portion of spicy tuna on top of crab salad on a crisp cracker.


Bison Burger at True Food Kitchen

Lenox is getting a new restaurant! Opening next week, w had an opportunity to taste it on Friday. Super healthy and super tasty, it’s perfect for a post shopping lunch. And the bison burger? Like buttah….


Shrimp & Grits Stuffed Burger at The Nook

This week’s winner sent us a shot of the this. Just look at that beauty….
