I've been going almost every week since they opened. I'm addicted to not just the pizza but the plain (not truffle) burrata. I think this NYC restaurant will "stick" in Atlanta. First the owner is truly involved. I've met both owners Roberto & Antonio. Roberto is still coming to Atlanta a few days a week, and of course his daughter is here as the head pizza maker. The other thing they have going for them is they have installed a true restaurant manager Patricio. He engages with the customers, recognizes repeat customers and develops a relationship with them, and most importantly like a true Neapolitan he makes sure to enjoy his work and not make it just a numbers game.
@milton I was just there and had the old bread. When were you there? Will follow up with Gio.
@jimbob I actually drink only 1-2x a month. However, when I do, I am such a lightweight that it only takes two drinks for me to pay for it the next day. That being said, being a mother does not mean a person isn't allowed to drink. I know plenty of people that are amazing mothers who also like to drink wine at night and are still capable of waking up at 6 in the morning to be amazing parents.
It's unfortunate, but Gio's changed the roll on the Napoletano to more of their pizza dough/flatbread. It's still good, but not as good as it originally was.
Many hangovers have as much to do with dehydration, poor sleeping habits and poor diet/lack of food, as they do with consuming too alcohol in a particular setting. Judging strangers on the internet, well that's always awesome.

'Drinking' doesn't have to entail drinking to the point of getting a hangover.
Jimbob, your life doesn't stop after you have a kid. Including social things like drinking.
Don't you have a kid now? Are you seriously getting hangovers at this stage of your life?
January’s two-night tasting of Pappy van Winkle in Decatur, Georgia, raised $11,710 for Poverty is Real, an organization that supports local-level charities fighting poverty and homelessness. Herb Chereck of Decatur Package Store and Julian Goglia and Brooks Cloud of The Pinewood Tippling Room restaurant combined to present an evening of gourmet dining with seven courses matched to specific bottlings of the infamously hard to get bourbon.
Eighty whiskey aficionados paid $225 each to dine, sip Pappy, and bid on single bottles of his bourbon. Both nights quickly sold out and Chereck, Cloud, and Goglia hope to repeat the event in 2015. “I feel this was the best way to let a lot of people try Pappy, “said Chereck, “and, even better, all the profits went to a local charity.”

Ugh, the last thing I want to do is wait in that crowded, chaotic front room at Home Grown when I'm hungover. I think of a about a million other places I'd rather go.

El Toro...ah the memories...the blitzed pig outs of yore....
March 17 is on a Monday this month. What you got for Tuesday?
I drive by El Rey del Taco all the time but haven't been there since it was still El Toro #2 back in the day. (El Toro #1 with its Super Pacman table top arcade game was further down Buford Highway just north of Dresden.)
Looked at the menu and think I may need to stop by there soon.
In some instances, the restaurants will use direct shipping from the farmers. This will knock several days off the delivery delay that occurs when going through a distributor. Kimball House does that with many of their products
There's been a lot less of a problem with delivery vehicles parking in the bike lane since Edgewood Pizza was shuttered. I hope they'll be better neighbors in their new incarnation.
I went to Green Sprout yesterday for the first time and really enjoyed my meal I ordered the drumstick appetizer with a spicy ponzu sauce, very tasty. I than ordered the cutlet which was light and crispy and served over fresh broccoli with a delicious brown sauce. The service was friendly and calming. The girl eating across from me says she eats at Green Sprout every Tuesday well maybe we can start a tuesday Green Sprout club because Im hooked
@jml ... google is your friend.
Sorry about that, guys. This was a last minute assignment. Spicy sauce is $.50 and ramen is $9-12. The address is embedded in the name of the restaurant. Just click.
