Chef Ford Fry has a winner with latest venture The Optimist

Newest addition to the Fry food empire has locals and national food writers buzzing

Growing up in the northeast has meant access to some of the finest seafood from Maine to Maryland. It’s also made me somewhat of an expert in the field of crustaceans. Summers in Boston spent at Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar, Abbott’s Lobster in the Rough in Noank, CT, and countless nights at some of New York City’s culinary masterpieces including Pearl Oyster Bar, Mary’s Fish Camp and Red Hook Lobster Pound. So it seemed living in Atlanta meant sacrificing the food I’ve come to know and love most in my world… until now – Meet The Optimist.


Mardi Gras Food and Fun…Atlanta Style

Let the good times roll…

If you can’t make it down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, have no fear. We have plenty of ways to celebrate right here in Atlanta. From great restaurants with a flare for Louisiana fare to raucous all-day parties, it’s easy to find some sinful debauchery to get into.  After all, Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday.  Let’s get fat, y’all. 


BLT Steak

So good, it makes other Atlanta Steak houses nervous.

Most people who know me, know that I am proud to be a New Yorker. So it’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan when my hometown favorites make their way to ATL, bringing a new treat to add to our dining arsenal. So with the addition of BLT to the W Downtown a while back, I knew where my next dining adventure had to take place.
