FOOD REVIEW: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Lawrenceville GA

FOOD REVIEW: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Lawrenceville GA

The night before we went here we were talking about how to take something "gourmet" and make it blow up. How do you take a YEAH! Burger, a FLIP Burger Boutique or any genre for that matter and make it big BUT make it right – so what’s replicated, is authentic to the original. After tonight were convinced you can’t.

Chick-fil-A Hosts Daddy Daughter Date Night, February 5th

With the introduction of their Spicy Chicken sandwich, this year, Chick-fil-A has, also, decided to put its own spin on the classic Father-Daughter dance. On February 5th, all 119 Chick-fil-A restaurant locations in Greater Atlanta will host a “Date Night” for fathers and daughters from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.

During this special evening, fathers and daughters are encouraged to find some time to spend together, enjoying time in the restaurant and engaging in a variety of activities. Each restaurant will celebrate in their own way, with some providing a red carpet arrival, table service, dancing, live music, photography and limo rides.

Every Daddy-Daughter pair will also receive a trayliner with questions and conversation topics to get the fun going, and a take-home booklet called “Continuing the Conversation” that provides ideas for future dates and conversation topics.

Seating’s are available every hour, and reservations are required.

FOOD REVIEW: The Diner At Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill GA

FOOD REVIEW: The Diner At Sugar Hill, Sugar Hill GA

If I was to think of where a trendy, upscale diner would be my mind would probably gravitate more toward West Midtown or Virginia-Highlands rather than Sugar Hill (near Buford). What we did find was décor equally worthy of the tag “trendy” and friendliness that the South is known for.

We were greeted immediately and seated within 10 minutes (NOTE: we arrived on the tail end of the lunch rush for Sunday brunch. I expect longer waits normally). This brief moment of waiting gave us the opportunity to lust over the dessert display. We found out later that the cakes are made by the owners chef brother.

FOOD REVIEW: Gourmandises, Suwanee GA

FOOD REVIEW: Gourmandises, Suwanee GA

Snuggled discreetly at the end of strip mall in Suwanee (ITP folks, please GPS) is a wonderful French bistro known as Gourmandises.

As many Americans, we are unaccustomed to French cooking. I think primarily because of the lack of French restaurants in which we can experience this delight.
