God this town sucks. Every place is the same "nouvelle southern" bullshit and somehow Julia Leroy continues to get hired after failures and consequently lauded for her talent. Somebody man up and open a real restaurant.
I was at Antico Pizza Napoletana just yesterday, Thursday, between noon and 1. They were open, and it was delicious... I'm not speculating about the hours, since I didn't really take notice, but they were certainly open. Double-check them!
I sat next to you once at Abattoir, only a couple weeks after they opened... I figured it was maybe the first time you were checking out the spot since I saw Clifford saying "hi" and a plethora of menu selections splayed in front of yourself and your wife. I considered saying something, but then realized how much it would suck to be accosted at dinner, aside from me being unable to think of something truly worthwhile to say. I'm convinced it would have been a waste of time for us both, as well as your privacy. Regardless, from a chef younger than yourself, I am a fan of your writing, your innovative cooking, and your attempt to keep yourself grounded as you find yourself a sort of celebrity. I post this only so that you know that among the crowd of wannabe paparazzi are people who ARE your fans, but choose to express it by allowing you your privacy when it's due.
Capozzi's. Capozzi's. I won't say it thrice. Go there. East Cobb. No New Yorker will be disappointed, unless you just came back from NY. Then you need a buffer period.
Does salsa con sabor have mofongo on its menu as well?
Sam and Daves BBQ1 is the only joint in town that stands up to Daddy D'z level of excellence. Too bad it's all the way out in East Cobb... I still make the drive, though.
