First fresh hand-pulled mozzarella bar in Georgia!
You're missing out if you haven't tried out Atlanta's hottest and newest mozzarella bar, Bastone! The restaurant certainly lives up to the hype! From the interior design to the quality of their food, everything was beautiful and delicious. The bright interior complemented by earthy tones and greenery makes the experience even more lovely. They're the only restaurant in Georgia that does hand-pulled mozzarella, and if you sit at the bar, you can watch the chefs work their magic with the cheese! Besides their signature mozzarella tasting, the hand-made pastas are another highlight of the night. Dishes featured: 1. focaccia 2. fatt' a mano 3. prosciutto di parma 32 months 4. angelo and franco 5. lamb tartare 6. orecchiette 7. casoncelli All the dishes were beautifully crafted and the tastes of them definitely exceeded my expectations. We had such a wonderful experience and we can't wait to be back throughout the summer for some wine and cheese on the patio!
Brunch Vibes at the Real Milk and Honey ATL
Brunch vibes at the Real Milk and Honey ATL. This is one spot you need to add to this weekend's brunch plans. When you hear people talk about "Atlanta Brunch" this restaurant is exactly the vibes that come to mind! Not only is the food delicious but you feel like you're walking into one big party - especially with the floor to art on the walls. AND the bartender uses fresh flowers, fruit, and exclusive mixers that elevate the cocktails to an entirely different level. The music is on point (90s jams then transitioning into your favorite current tunes). The menu switches up seasonally so you will always have something fresh to try. The line was literally wrapped around the door so get there early! @ServingLooksATL
Octopus a NEW Seafood and Mediterranean restaurant in Atlanta!
Patio season is that you? I'm sliding into the weekend at Octopus a NEW Seafood and Mediterranean restaurant in Atlanta! They cook their food over an open flame like the Whole Mediterranean Sea Bass that is served head-on and dripping in lemon, caper, and herbs! Perfect spot for birthdays, an impressive date night, or just to elevate your weekends from the same old, same old. I enjoyed the live DJ, hookah, and bottle service that kept the party going after dinner. Octopus also has several flat-screen TV's to enjoy the game. They also have a full bar serving up your exclusive drinks like the "Marrakesh" inspired by A city from Morocco wand containing fresh organic daisy tea (and a flower!). I will be back to enjoy the patio! It's so pretty with a garden theme, fresh air, and plenty of comfy seating! @ServingLooksATL

Restaurant Review: Gyu-Kaku
We stumbled upon Gyu-Kaku while we were waiting to go to the airport in Austin to fly back home. We had already been eating all day but needed to kill time so we did what we do best - EAT MORE FOOD! Eat, drink, and be merry! I've never had Japanese BBQ before so I'm glad we tried it. We got a multi-course meal with different kinds of meat. I always get takoyaki whenever I see it on the menu and theirs was pretty good. I LOVED the broccoli and cheddar that you throw on the grill and the meats were pretty good. I wish they had better and more creative drinks but when in doubt, Jameson comes in pretty clutch! Good vibes, and it's fun to cook your own meals on the tabletop fire. They do have a couple of locations in Denver as well, which I wasn't aware of until we went. Overall, I would rate it 3 out of 5. I prefer Korean BBQ but I'd go again.
