Weekend Recap #1
I thought it would be fun to do a recap of my weekend and share with you guys some of the spots I go to in Atlanta. So the new blog post today is a quick recap of my foodie adventures🙂
Parlor Atlanta (Castleberry)
Parlor is a new cocktail den in Atlanta. Inspired by pre-prohibition and 1800’s black bartenders, the spot is a stylish intimate place to have great conversations. The cocktails and mocktails that I had were simply amazing, strong but perfectly blended, paired the beautiful glassware!! I was super impressed. I cant wait to go back!! I had the El Navigador, The Julep, Rack Punch, and a refreshing mocktail with lite bites.
Marcel (West Midtown)
Marcel is a French inspired upscale steakhouse with a bargain late night menu with $10 options. The chocolate cake I got was amazing, as well as the cocktails. Such a great late night spot for desserts and cocktails. Marcel is opened till 2am!! Another spot with music spinning and good vibes all around.
Holler Dash ( West Midtown)
Biscuit House has beignets on their menu that I’m constantly craving mostly because it comes with this amazing coffee flavored dipping sauce that I love. The beignets were the perfect start for my day; fresh, hot, crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. The beignets come 5 0r 6 per order with powder sugar. I also love the iced cappucino and I always add caramel flavor for some sweetness.
Antica Posta Italian Restaurant (Buckhead)
The service at Antica was really welcoming and accommodating, the servers were very knowledgeable and all the staff was super attentive. Marco, the owner visited all the tables and was there when we arrived and wished us well when we left. On Saturday nights right around 10pm, Antica has a DJ spinning tunes, full bar and limited menu, with hookah also till 2am.
Highlight of the Weekend: New Orleans bbq shrimp
The New Orleans BBQ Shrimp from 5Church was the highlight of my weekend. I had them twice! New Orleans BBQ Shrimp is an iconic dish from New Orleans that was accidentally created in the mid 1950’s at the restaurant Pascal Manale. Creole seafood seasoning, lots of butter, garlic, white wine and fresh herbs, served with French bread. Soooo good!!
Cheers to the weekend!
See you guys next time!!
