Re: “Cheap Eats: Raku

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.

Re: “Cheap Eats: Raku

Not only that, but I don't see an address listed anywhere. And surely this can't be right? "bump up the flavor with a shot of spicy sauce for $5"

Re: “First Look: St. Cecilia

I'll second the comment on the gnudi. It was outstanding. Love the wine list, too. It is very approachable. The only issue I had was the over zealous bar patrons crowding into my table which was unfortunately right beside the buzzing bar. If you don't want to be overtaken by the mass of beautifully tressed, manicured, and dressed women hoping to find the driver of one of exotic cars out front, you better ask for a table away from the bar.

Re: “Cheap Eats: Raku

Hey Bliss, you provide the prices for everything but the ramen.

He has two planes- both Cessnas (206 and 414). The internet is hard.

"I fly out of Kennesaw in my plane"

Damn...unless he's talking about putting around in a Piper Cub, Food Network must pay better than I would have thought.

Re: “Glutton at Large: Oysters in Atlanta

The oysters often hit the distributor a few days after harvesting. Oysters will last for weeks if stored properly (cold, cup side down), though the flavor will change a bit. Generally, as long as they are not open, they are still alive and edible. I've kept them for weeks in the fridge.

Re: “Quick Bites: Nikolai's Roof, Le Petit Marche to reopen, Taproom Coffee, and more

Thanks for mentioning Taproom Coffee and Le Petit Marche. Downtown Kirkwood is changing rapidly and has some great stuff to offer all within a walkable distance. There's also the recently opened Anna's BBQ, the recently opened Kirkyard Public House, and the coming-along Elmyr Mexican restaurant. There's food, a library, and a park all within a few blocks of each other!

Re: “Glutton at Large: Oysters in Atlanta

@Dave, my understanding is that oysters typically make it to retail within a week, but I suspect the high-end places mentioned here get them sooner. (Anyone know for sure?) As for Apalachicola, I try to root for the home team, too, but from what I've tasted, oysters from the Northeast and West coasts blow away our local guys. Is a $3 oyster really three times tastier than a $1 oyster? I think some are!

Re: “Glutton at Large: Oysters in Atlanta

At $3 apiece, the exquisite oysters at The Optimist are almost worth it. Almost.

Re: “Glutton at Large: Oysters in Atlanta

I grew up near the Apalachicola bay. I'm used to oysters that came out of the water that morning. I like them raw with a touch of tabasco. I've been leery of trying any oyster places in Atlanta because an un-fresh oyster is a horror to me. For the Atlanta restaurants mentioned in this story, how long are they sitting on ice before they make it to the table? A day? Two days?
