Re: “Fresh groceries at Edgewood Target

@Meredith - Cool! I saw that there but forgot to look into it.

Re: “Fresh groceries at Edgewood Target

Sweet list! The groceries at Edgewood Target are pretty much the best thing ever. I wouldn't do my regular shopping there (though bring in Springer Mountain Farms chicken and I might try)... but to pick up something for dinner when I'm already at Target... amazing.

Re: “The sad, sad picture of Atlanta's food deserts

For easy access, here are the qualifications used by the map:

The HFFI working group defines a food desert as a low-income census tract where a substantial number or share of residents has low access to a supermarket or large grocery store:

To qualify as a “low-income community,” a census tract must have either: 1) a poverty rate of 20 percent or higher, OR 2) a median family income at or below 80 percent of the area's median family income;

To qualify as a “low-access community,” at least 500 people and/or at least 33 percent of the census tract's population must reside more than one mile from a supermarket or large grocery store (for rural census tracts, the distance is more than 10 miles).

Re: “Review: Briza

Is this the one that prompted your "found the worst restaurant in Atlanta" tweet, or is there more awfulness to come?

Re: “The Atlanta sushi void

@Jesse.Reed yes! I'm so glad you said that! Someone took me to Minato once - I really enjoyed it, but could never remember the name of it!

Re: “Gravy Train: Peasant Group's new restaurant, cupcakes in Ormewood Park

Update (good news!) on Masada - I've now heard that they will no longer sell through Publix but they will continue to sell at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. They've stopped distribution to Kroger for the time being, but it may return in the future.

Re: “Gravy Train: A new chef at Abattoir, Decatur is tasty

Thanks for your note - I have updated the article to reflect this!
