KILL IT!! Love you guys!
As an attorney I can't help but agree about the weighted legislation in Ga., however in regards to a comparative analysis of micro-breweries to micro-wineries, clearly the breweries have a more favorable stance especially within the city of Atlanta. I do enjoy being able to get a growler of beer but I would prefer to have the option to appease my pallet with good wine from the winery without having to go an excessive distance to get it. I think this article is very informative and concise. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of such a day when my yearning for a local micro-winery will be supported by state and municipal legislature. Keep up the good fight Urban Vines and know your supporters are here.
The Gorgeous One usually plays beer pong and flip cup with high gravity beers because my beers need to be as strong as my 235lbs of twisted steel and sex appeal.
Love it! So excited! Hope you will also cater to lunch!
i'm really hoping the salt and pepper shrimp from octopus bar make their way over to Lusca!
steve, you may want to lay off of the passion to create greatness for a while. sounds like it might have pushed you past the legal limit.
A showdown w/out Haru Ichiban is like a PGA tournament w/out Tiger Woods. Inconsequential.

"His passion to create greatness is so intoxicating"
Steve Josovitz you are bottom feeding scum, the proverbial vulture that circles people businesses when they are on the downward spiral. Take you self promoting post to hell with you. You have a VIP reservation waiting for you.
expanding to Alpharetta? It's the beginning of doom.
As the Commercial Restaurant & Real Estate Broker who did the deal at GIO all I can say is that Giovanni Di Palma was a class act… He was the consummate professional, respectful, and easy to work with. His passion to create greatness is so intoxicating. Every time I visit I am bombarded by his enthusiasm to show me a new idea, concept or new dish he is creating. His brain is so far down the road to other concepts your just along for the ride with no choice but to fasten your seat belt. Giovanni Di Palma ROCKS…. Steve Josovitz, The Shumacher Group, inc.
I don't think the ramen is still available at Miso in the old 4th Ward. I understand the owner, Guy Wong plans to open a full-time Ramen place in the near future though.
Did anyone try it? and how did it stack up to the Ramen here?
I tried the ramen at the westside Raku, It was enjoyable. The broth lacked a little dimension but the pork belly was exquisite.
@Raku - I tried calling your store just now. The guy answering the phone needs a lot of training. Even getting a basic answer like when you are open until was like pulling teeth.
Maybe it's me, but the communal table set up at Antico is a major turn off. It might be part of the experience, but I don't care for sitting with complete strangers and their current insights on life.
Might be a novice - but Sushi Nami in Sandy Springs and Alpharetta does a damn good bowl of Tonkotsu. Huge portion of it too. They add in one of those pink white fishcakes and some pickled cabbage - but always a good lunch choice for me! Also - tried Bishoku on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, and really enjoyed theirs as well.
if "caffe" means coffee, why isn't this called "cafe gio"?
"In my mind, I want this to be a complete village, a destination. . . ."
How about some PARKING? The place is a ten minute drive from my home (sorry GG) but the parking situation there deters me from going. Not to mention the hordes crowding inside APN (Gio's Chicken is a little more manageable) fighting for a corner of a table. If you're a party of six on a busy night, you can forget about sitting together. It's not a restaurant or village, it's an ordeal. I guess that's what comes with success. No shortage of customers willing to deal with the obstacles. I wish I were more tolerant.
Great article Jennifer.. Makes me want to go over there for lunch 'cept it is a 45 mile trip one way from out here on the East side...
Raku has another location that just opened up in west midtown,
810 Marietta st NW 404-500-1908. Come try our ramen and see for yourself.
so...how's the ramen at shoya? i keep seeing people post about it, must be worth checking out.
