Re: “First Look: Illegal Food

The Banh Mi ($14.50) is a burger-like version of the chef's favorite Buford Highway snack from Quoc Huong.

and costs $10 more than a banh-mi at Quoc Huong.

Overpriced nonsense.

Take Uber... and be sure to add their special martini with the crazy smooth German gin.

That food was so damn good!!! And it's great to see them on their own finally.

Soon to be shuttered. We ate there last night and the review is spot on!

Anyone surprised that "Bar Meatball" didn't make it?

Holy shit! This place makes hamburgers?!? I've been looking all over the city for one. That's it, I'm stopping in today.

Re: “Quick Bites: Woodfire Grill closing, chef changes at Last Word, and more

John, like ATL said, there was a Caribou Coffee in the Edgewood complex. Without a drive-thru or attached business, it couldn't stay busy and closed a few years ago

An employee at the Edgewood Kroger told me 5 or 6 years ago that that location was the busiest Kroger in the SE at the time, clearing a million dollars a week. Makes sense to me that a Starbucks could make money there.

Re: “Varuni Napoli shuttered after "fire" damage

So there was smoke coming from a restaurant's chimney and firefighters just busted in and started spraying water everywhere without identifying a fire?

Something doesn't add up.

How about we open up a good independent coffee place in the Edgewood center instead of another Starbucks? Oh wait...that's not what the Edgewood Shoppers want.

Re: “Instacart grocery delivery launches in Atlanta

I am an Instacart Shopper in Washington DC and my primary responsibility is to train new shoppers. I'm also a Shift Captain at one of the Whole Foods Stores here in WDC. I personally train the shoppers in the area of picking the best of the best not the best of the worst.

I think that Kroger had a Starbucks kiosk when they first opened. Not only does Target have one, but so does Barnes & Noble. I preferred the Caribou that used to be over there. Too many Starbucks I guess.

Re: “First Look: Grand Champion BBQ

The pork is underwhelming, as is the sausage. The brisket is fine, I guess. I'm a GA boy so I dig the pig. The sides are nothing special, hate to disappoint. They're premade in plactic tubs and kept in a warmer all day. Prices are comparable to the rest of Krog Street - pricey, but the quality is not there to justify the costs unlike the other stalls. And to top things off, they're never open! and when they are open they're rude as hell, like you're doing them a favor by buying their food over Yalla or Fred or Gu's or Cockentrice to Tart, which you're not because those are all considerably better choices.

Re: “Quick Bites: Woodfire Grill closing, chef changes at Last Word, and more

I'm always sad to see a restaurant close. But, calling the "Kevin days" the salad days of the restaurant is a little rich. It was busy because the guy was on TV. His food was fine. He was at best my third favorite chef at Woodfire Grill, after Michael Thuoy and Tyler Williams.

Re: “Restaurant Review: Cooks and Soldiers

Fantastic restaurant...great food and really great service. These guys really 'know' how to run a restaurant. The bar inside the kitchen makes table service better. Chris Dobson is brilliant in everything he does and deserves a lot of kudos. He is genuine and knows how to make a drink.
Well done to the rest of the group there as well.
I have taken groups here from 3 to 18 and every single time they have delivered. Not easy especially on a Friday or a Saturday night...and only 4 months old...more power to you guys and gals - Arjun

Re: “Restaurant Review: Cooks and Soldiers

My wife and I absolutely love this restaurant. We're not food experts by any means, but we loved both the experience and the food.

I'm leaving a comment because I wanted to share my personal experience with the drinks there, since the reviewer considered that an area of weakness. I'm not a drink expert either, but for me the drinks were a major high point. I'm a big fan of spicy ginger beer, and the beverage manager (Christopher Dopson) brews his own. I've tried ginger beer everywhere I go, and this was the best I'd ever had. I got a sample to try it separately from the drinks, and was blown away. And the drink I had that was made with it (the Warm Soul, I believe) was fantastic. The ginger beer and the drink were so good that I went up to the bar to find out who was responsible. Mr. Dopson came out to meet me personally and gave me his card.

This isn't to gainsay the reviewer; they clearly have much more experience than me. But as a simple patron, I loved the entire experience. And I'm still raving to people about the drinks (clearly). :-)
